A sure sign of new Apple hardware being introduced, Apple’s online store is now down. This can mean only one thing – we are certainly going to witness new hardware launch(es) at WWDC, an otherwise software oriented event aimed at developers. The rumormill is betting at new Mac hardware, including new MacBook Pros and Mac Pros running on the latest Intel Ivy Bridge processors.
