THE Apple Store is closed just hours before the big Apple event later today.
Apple appears to have taken its Store offline as it prepares for WWDC 2022.
WWDC stands for Worldwide Developers Conference.
Apple was expected to launch some new products at the event.
We could also see new software for many Apple gadgets.
Rumors are pointing to the unveiling of a virtual reality headset, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
It’s unclear exactly when the Apple Store will be back online, but the tech giant says to “check back after the event.”
The App Store is still available, so you can keep updating your current devices.
It’s likely that Apple will bring its Store back once the WWDC announcements are over.
Usually all new gadgets are uploaded immediately, even if you can only pre-order them.
What is the Apple WWDC 2022?
WWDC is Apple’s annual developer conference where app makers gather in large numbers.
Apple also uses the event to make important announcements about its products.
The event usually attracts thousands of visitors, but in 2020 WWDC was purely virtual for the first time.
And the 2021 WWDC event followed with an exclusive online experience.
Apple’s 2022 will also be mostly virtual, but with a special limited-capacity event.
“Apple will host a special day on June 6 for developers and students at Apple Park to join the online community to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos,” Apple said.
“Space will be limited and details on how to apply to participate will be made available shortly on the Apple Developer website and app.”
Apple hasn’t confirmed exactly what we’ll see at WWDC.
But the event will almost certainly showcase iOS 16.
This is the next major update for our iPhones, introducing a host of new features for free.
