Monday night (10/22) I noticed that the 3 Nor Cal Apple stores I checked at apple.com/retail all had “Special store hours” posted for October 30. Each was opening at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time, which coincides nicely with the start of the October 30 Apple Event in New York, which is 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Perhaps this indicates that the products introduced at the Event will be available immediately? I’m hoping that will be true for the new iPad Pros! [For conspiracy theorists: Now on Tuesday morning, the Apple website has deleted the “Special store hours” for Oct. 30 for the Infinite Loop and Apple Park Visitor Center locations, which were present last night. But the San Fran Union Square listing still shows the Oct. 30 early opening.] CORRECTION: As of 1:25 pm Pacific Time today, the Apple Park Visitor Center store now lists Oct. 30 Special opening hour of 7:00 a.m. Pacific.
