Big Apple Announcement Today

1:05 pm in Trends by Jason Baskey

Today is the big day for early adopters and Mac fanatics. After months of rumours and speculation, Apple is making a huge announcement in San Francisco today at 10 AM (PST) – that’s 1 PM Eastern…so, right about now.

Apple has already taken its shop offline. It’s become standard practice for the Cupertino crew, so it’s hardly a surprise. Still, it’s a good sign that some new products will be available, at least for pre-order, starting today. Interestingly, the store isn’t the only Apple property out of commission currently — reports have been trickling in since yesterday that iCloud is out for some customers as well. The down time could just be a bug that needs fixing, but perhaps iCloud will also get some significant updates this morning to accompany the launch of the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.

Check out a couple of these fan-made videos based on rumour surrounding the iPhone 5.
