As of early this morning, the Apple Store web site is down.
The reason for this is most likely iPod-related.
The current rumor is that Apple will be launching its new iPod units. The new models are expected to feature an A8 processor, 8 megapixel camera and arrive in new dark blue, pink and gold colors available across the lineup.
The new models were leaked last week when resources within iTunes 12.2 were studied. It is expected that the iPod touch will get a storage bump with a new 128 GB option for $399. The base iPod price is expected to remain unchanged with the 16 GB SKU priced at US$199. Also notice that the Loop wristband is not visible in the corner of the iPod touch in the image above, suggesting it will be removed from the product.
The Apple Store is expected to be back up again soon with the new units available for sale.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
