Interestingly, iClous is also down for some users so this could either be an outage or due to some changes happening in Apple’s cloud service as well.
Apple has made it a tradition to launch new iPhones 9 to 12 days after the official announcement, with pre-orders available right after the unveiling. With Apple’s former logistics chief Tim Cook now at the head of the company we have no reason to doubt Cupertino will continue this tradition. The new iPhone is expected to be announced at the Yerba Buena arts center in San Francisco and it kicks off at 10:00am PCT.
