Apple store down ahead of Chicago educational event

It will be back!


This story is part of Apple event, our comprehensive coverage of the latest news from Apple HQ.

The Apple Store website was shut down Tuesday ahead of the company’s Chicago press conference.

It is common for the company to take their online store offline before events, only to bring it back online during or shortly after new product announcements.

So what can we expect when the store goes live again? It could be new iPads, a more affordable price Apple Pencil, maybe even a new keyboard.

Apple’s surprise spring event is notable because of its focus on education – “Join us to hear new creative ideas for teachers and students”, read the invitation, under the headline “Let’s go on a field trip” – and its location: the event will take place at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago.

There will be no live video stream, but you can follow CNET’s live blog and simulcast of live video from 30 minutes before the event kicks off at 8:00 a.m. PT. / 11 a.m. ET.
