    That's strange, if nothing's going on sale today, why is the Apple store under construction?

    The whole thing.

    You can't buy any Apple products right now.

    They always go under construction on these days because they need to upload the info pages, etc.. for all of the new products.

    Are you talking about the physical apple stores or the online store? Online is down already; no surprise there. It will be down until probably 3:00 EST.

    Yes. Even if nothing goes on sale today they will update the offerings with info on the purchase/preorder date.

    This is indeed interesting. Surely if it were, say, a Mavericks release, they would just issue that update through the App Store. Could it possibly be related to the availability of the Mac Pro? If it's the iPhones, it would go against most predictions of a release later in the month. What about an updated Apple Airport Express?

    The new iPhones will be in the online store but it will say "preorders start this friday".

    I always had a hunch that the phones would go on sale today.

    I would bet against that. The fact that apple.com store is down is totally normal for an apple release.

    The store always goes down before a keynote. They have to update it with all the new products. Will state when pre-orders start and such. No surprises here..

    Welcome to the MR forums! :D as stated this is the norm for the store to go down before events. Another norm around these parts after the events are OMG! that is the most awesome <place new product or feature here> or WTF! I'm switching! (to whatever)... (for the umteenth time) Faith in apple restored!, Apple is doomed! etc, etc. again, welcome and enjoy the ride till the next event. ;) :D

    Usually update new product info, but you can not buy and add it to your cart till pre order opening.
