Apple’s US Online Store Temporarily Unavailable

As of early this morning, specifically 8:00 AM ET, visitors to the U.S.

Apple Store online were greeted not with the usual array of gadgets and gizmos, but with a familiar placeholder.

The site displayed the classic sticky note message indicating, “we’ll be back within the hour.” We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates accordingly.

A big thank you to all who brought this to our attention.
