    Why do they need to take their site down for updates? Is this 2000 or what??

    I wish it be a silent update for Mac and reserve iPad in WWDC.
    Will feel so disappointed if they release a press for features added product. I don't mind they release a press for updating the spec.
    Feel like Apple no longer the same, sigh.

    This time EVERYONE gets an invite - it's called a link:

    http://apple.com

    No stupidly expensive tickets, no unnecessary travel and queues, yay! Just a single finger movement - "click" - you're up to speed.

    With a spec bump would be nice. Second gen fingerprint reader etc.

    Well, in this case with only some back end verification that there's anything going on at all, and, that the store is down for hours before the sun is up in half of North America on a Tuesday, not sure how how much effective marketing is at play for 99% of the general public...who don't follow Apple stories everyday like Macrumors and other site readers do.

    Zero chance of a 4k Apple TV tomorrow ?

    They need to be on stage and say iTunes is also getting 4k movies/tv that can't be a press release ?

    I'd love to see an iPad Pro mini though I admit it's probably not useful to most folks. It would be perfect for my needs.

    Outside of that I'd love to see updated iMacs, MacBook and MacBook pros. Hell give us an Apple TV as well.

    Since I'm wishing here might as well hope for an iPod nano that isn't garbage after a few months use also! Ya I know, good luck!

    I wouldn't read to much into that Apple put that up as standard now.
