Ahead of the WWDC 2017 keynote set for 10am PT, the online Apple Store has gone down.
Online Apple Store Being Updated with new iPad Pro and MacBook Pro Models? Seems Likely
WWDC has always been a software-only event. But this year it seems as though Apple will be breaking the tradition by introducing new hardware as well. Many reports suggest that Apple will go ahead and announce a new 10.5-inch iPad as well as a refresh to the iPad Pro lineup and the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. But of course, there's no way to verify this just yet. And given that the online Apple Store is down, that too on this particular day, every single hint points in the rumored direction.
Apart from the rumored hardware announcement, Apple will be using the stage to reveal its future software lineup that powers its devices. This includes iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4 as well as tvOS 11. The company is expected to go through the software features, a tentative release date alongside the beta release of the software to registered developers.
The event is set to kick off on 10am PT, and we will be covering everything live as it unfolds. Make sure you check out the time here to see when the event will go live in your location: Check Out WWDC 2017 Start Time In Your Region And How To Watch The Live Keynote.
