The Apple Store is down in preparation for iPhone 5 pre-orders.

Don’t be alarmed! Apple always switches off its online store before a new product launch. You’ll be able to pre-order the iPhone 5 at midnight Pacific tonight from Apple, Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T.

AT&T’s online store went down earlier tonight. Verizon and Sprint’s stores still appear to be up.
