Apple's brand new site to communicate system status of all of their various services, reveals that Apple planerer to temporarily shut down the Apple Store on Tuesday. The reason: "Maintenance."
information on Apple's status page gives no further information about what it might be about, other than the maintenance of the Apple Store, and that the online store must be "refreshed" and remain inaccessible between 8:00 and 13:30, Swedish time.
It is high time for the launches of several of Apple's product categories, but most likely the new models of the iPad Pro, and maybe even a red Iphone 7, as well as an Iphone SE with higher storage capacity.

Macrumors also notes that the time when the Apple store should jump back up and running, 13:30 Swedish time, often is the time when Apple usually release press releases on new products.
But if the new produtker really is to wait, or if it only concerns the maintenance of the store, we can not say with certainty. Apple has never advertised in advance about the maintenance of the Apple store, so we have no experience to draw from. Tuesday-afternoon will tell, simply.
