Apple Store is down as of Wednesday morning
Looking to do some browsing at the online Apple Store on Wednesday morning? You will have to come back later as the site is down at the moment. Loyal phoneArena readers have informed us of the site being down and being inquisitive ourselves, we went to check it out and yes indeedy, the screen displays a white sticky note when you go to the Apple Store.

In various languages, the note reads, "We'll be back. We're busy updating the Apple Store for you and will be back soon." Go ahead and get back to sleep. We have no idea how long this outage will last and surely you can wait until the morning. As soon as it comes back on, we will let you know.

Thanks, Darin!

Drama queens. Every time Apple does an update, they take their market down, which causes all the tech sites to bring attention to it. Self generated buzz that iUsers fall for every time. If I was a consumer, I'd prefer they did the changes in the background and load them when they're ready so no outages occur.
