Apple Store shuts for Apple iPhone 5 announcement!

Well today is the day for all Apple fans in the world, as the time ticks away until Apple takes to the stage to announce this year’s big Apple products. We can just feel the excitement brewing.

The first step in the new product’s life has started as the now customary Apple store outage has started whilst the company restocks its virtual shelves and updates the website wth all the new and exciting products, software and accessories.

And if even half of the rumours are true then Apple will need a full refresh of the homepage. Along with a new look iPhone 5 we are also expecting the new Apple iOS software, new accessories to fit the re-shaped iPhone, a huge raft of new connection devices to go with the rumoured dock connector change, and then there is the rumoured iPod ranges that will be refreshed.

So all in all we can see why Apple has taken down its website a nit earlier than it usually would, as it has a lot of work to do.

If you try to access the Apple Store at the moment you will get a scrolling “We’ll be Back” message which will slowly display various different languages.

We miss the familiar Apple Post-it note but hey, the world is a changing. Hardened Apple fans will no doubt be losing their mind that the classic post-it note has changed right now.

We will be keeping you posted on all the latest Apple news later today when the Apple event officially starts.
