“Developing news. We’re making updates to the Apple Store,” a message reads. “Check back after the event, streaming on or on the Apple TV app.”
The store downtime is part of Apple’s traditional buildup to events when it’s preparing to add new products to its lineup — suggesting we’ll see fresh hardware like the highly anticipated Mac Pro performance-focused desktop. You’ll be able to access it again after the event and likely be able to preorder the devices it announces Monday.

WWDC kicks off at 10 a.m. PT or 1 p.m. ET (6 p.m. BST or 3 a.m. June 7 AEST). CNET will have complete coverage of Monday’s event, including live reporting and plenty of follow-up analysis.
