As per tradition, Apple has taken down the Apple Store prior to today’s WWDC keynote in anticipation for the launch of some brand new products that are expected to be announced today. Apple routinely takes down their online Apple Store prior to a major event in order to add the new products and make sure customers don’t purchase a product the company plans on replacing the day of an update – not to mention it’s a great way to build up hype for new products.

Apple is expected to be introducing a brand new version of both of its major operating systems, iOS and OS X, dubbed iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 respectively. iOS is said to be seeing a major redesign towards a new “flat” aesthetic as heralded by Jonathan Ive, while OS X is scheduled to see some updates for “power users” such as a new tabbed Finder, dual monitor improvements, and Mission Control enhancements. Apple is also expected to launch an update to their MacBook line.
