Apple Store is currently down with a splash screen stating that it is currently updating the store and it will be back soon. The downtime comes ahead of the company opening its pre-orders of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, which will initially begin in Australia, China, Germany, Japan, the UK and the US. The India pre-orders will start from October 23.
The US Store is also facing downtime and the message there reads “You’re… early. Pre-order begins at 5:00 a.m. PDT. Enjoy the extra sleep.”
To recall, at the launch Apple states that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro pre-orders would go live Australia, China, Germany, Japan, the UK, the US and over 30 other countries at 5 AM PDT on Friday. And they will go on sale starting October 23. The devices will be made available for pre-ordering in the India Store on October 23 and will go on sale in the country on October 30.
The downtime in India could also be because of the Diwali offer that Apple is going to offer on October 17, when it will provide all customers of an iPhone 11 with a free pair of AirPods. It might also bring other offers also.
