Apple store goes down ahead of the iPhone X announcement

*Insert Terminator voice here*


One of the biggest product launch events in a decade is happening later today — Apple will be releasing its anniversary edition iPhone X, along with two regular models — the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus — and a whole bunch of other stuff. So it's fair to say we're in for an exciting ride.

And even though a disturbingly high amount of information leaked beforehand, the event itself is still right on track. And as proof of that, the company has now taken its online store down to prepare for all the new products.

This is regular practice for the company — we last saw it just three months ago when the new iPad models were announced, but it's been a longstanding practice for the company since it ensures a premature publishing of a product's listing won't spoil the announcement.

And while this may be bad news for the few poor souls who have for whatever reason decided to buy an Apple product online today, they can rest assured that the store will be back online later today. The keynote starts at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET, and will probably go on for about an hour and a half (but don't quote us on that one), and we imagine the store will go back online soon after.

lol, How am I trolling? Did I say Apple sucks? Android is the best? You're stupid for going with a fruit company? No, I did not. I simply said "Not me" in response to your statement about you being excited about their next product. I did not belittle you, I did not mock the brand that you are overly sensitive about.

And also, I do have stock in Apple, it's part of my 401K portfolio so you can stop making false assumptions about things you know nothing about. And stop getting butt hurt over a simple joke asking you to buy two of everything. It was a harmless joke, but I guess I should have known better than to type it in response to someone who has a history of being excessively unbalanced.

scotty you got called for being the troll you are, your backtracking and giving me some BS info about your 401K can't save you.

Oh, my, God, is it actually possible for anyone to be as stupid as you are right now? At absolutely no point had I trolled in my original statement, at no point did I ever backtrack, at no point did I ever contradict myself, and at no point did you make any valid, truthful statement to counter my own.
