Apple's Online Store Closes, Hints Launch Of New Products
For some time now, it has been speculated that Apple will release a few updates to several devices that are currently in its roster of products. But with the month coming to a close, the likeliness of an actual event becomes more improbable. However, the company's online store has recently announced a close, which some have suspected will be when the Cupertino tech giant will make the reveal.
As noted by MacRumors, Apple's online system status page now indicates that the store will be "updated and unavailable" on March 21 from 12MN to 5:20A M Pacific Time. This time will reportedly be used for maintenance. But the timing of the check has stirred speculation because some still believe that the company will be releasing new products soon.
The publication explained that the speculation is at a high as well because Apple normally issues its press releases during that time frame. Furthermore, it was reported that new products will be released within the week. The timing is suspicious, but it is definitely not confirmation that new products will soon get an overhaul.
BGR pointed out that if Apple is not making a big event for the release if there will be one, the most likely product up for announcement is the updated iPhone SE. The entry-level smartphone has been due for an upgrade. The estimated specs include a 128GB storage option, as well as the inclusion of Touch ID and a better overall camera. Furthermore, the original iPhone SE was released roughly a year ago.
Other Apple products that could be announced are updated iPads, which might include new 9.7 inch and 12.9-inch units. However, a new 10.5-inch model is also expected to be in the mix. The publication also claimed that the iMac might be given a minor facelift, which might include the recently released Kaby Lake processor into the desktop.
