The online Apple Store has been taken offline this morning less than five hours prior to Apple's highly-anticipated "Spring Forward" media event in San Francisco, where the company is expected to unveil further details about the Apple Watch alongside other potential announcements. If history repeats itself, the storefront should remain down until shortly after the conclusion of Apple's keynote.

Apple's media event starts at 10 AM Pacific with a live video stream available on Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. MacRumors will also have full coverage of the event, with a live blog on our front page and updates going out on our @MacRumorsLive Twitter account. We'll also have specific coverage of today's announcements in separate news stories, and our forums are a great place for readers to discuss the announcements before, during and after the event.

Does it usually go down this early?

Oh well, excited anyway. By the end of the day I'll order an Apple Watch, Mio Alpha 2 or FitBit Charge HR / Surge...

Has Apple done an event this early in the year since Tim Cook became CEO? I feel like ever since Tim Cook became CEO, Apple's first event of each year has been WWDC.

Really hope we see the 12 inch Macbook Air with Retina screen :eek:

This may be an expensive month - thinking about getting the watch as well...

So does this mean the possibility of pre-orders or just that they'll update the apple watch bit with further info?

Very unlikely for this to happen, but I would love for the pre-orders to go live today. I just wanna order one now!

Well this is either pre-orders for the watch or we are getting new Macs today.
