Apple's online Apple Store is down at the current time, and attempting to access it to make a purchase gives the standard "Be Right Back" message.

Given that it's a Tuesday night/afternoon in the United States and we're not expecting any new products this week, it's likely that this is a temporary maintenance outage that is not related to a new product release. The Apple Store app is also down at the current time.

We'll update this article when the online Apple Store is back up and functional, and we'll let MacRumors readers know if there are any notable changes.

Update: The online Apple Store is back up. Apple has re-added a "Store" tab to its main site, but that appears to be the only change, suggesting the outage was mostly a behind-the-scenes maintenance update.

earlier report said they are updating for changes in currency.
That was for the App Store lol. Also it says updates coming, not price changes. It’s unlikely they’d pull the whole store including countries where there are no changes to currency.

I heard it's going offline right now, because Max Tech rightly pointed out,
that apple forgot to add the new intel Xeon W CPU's to the updated Mac Pro offering today, so they're doing that right now :_)

I love MaxTech. They make honest videos
They’re horrible Youtubers that talk about video exporting for the most part and using that as some sort of universal computing metric. They also use constant clickbait to influence the algorithm, making them even more annoying. And not to mention the uncanny valley accents… not a fan.
