Anyone thinking maybe it's OS 10.9?!

It wouldn't be far fetched to think it would be.

They're updating iTunes in the Cloud since they've just added movie/TV support in some other countries, and probably making small changes to those pages and some other things. But basically just maintenance.

Mac Pro

Mac Pro was withdrawn from the European stores this month, due to not meeting some regulations. There were rumours that a replacement was on its way. Considering the Mac Pro hasn't been updated in 2 years, maybe that is a possibility.

Well store has been down for a while now. May be maintenance, but looks like stores are down all over the world.

I was wondering what might be coming, especially as there have been no big announcements recently. I'm thinking of sourcing a new iMac so I was wanting to check lead times this morning.

I went on today to order my new iMac but obviously can't. I'm curious too. I doubt it would be a new iMac considering this one was only released late 2012. The only thing that could sway me from an iMac would be a Mac Pro.

Don't know if it's any help but yesterday in the UK at least it was 3-4 weeks on the 21" and 4-6 weeks on the 27".

That's worse than it was last week! It'd be the 27" I'd be after too.

I thought Apple only released new products after press announcements?

If the store is down due to some new product, I hope it's the rumored iWatch there supposed to have been working on , but can't see it and probably just maintenance as mentioned already

New designs tend to be announced at Press Events, Spec bumps tend to get silent updates. So could be new LCD displays to match the new iMac design or updated TV, but unlikely to be a brand new product like iWatch. May be a new version of Aperture - There is a major photography exhibition due to start in the UK next week, I remember that Aperture 3 was released just before Focus on Imaging a few years ago. In fact I just checked both the prior releases of Aperture occurred in Feb 2008 then Feb 2010.

However not sure they would take the Main Store down as they sell it through the Mac App Store now.

Back up, almost 6 hours later. Don't see anything new yet. Must have been maintenance.
