It's an Apple press event day, which can only mean one thing this morning: Its online marketplace is down.

Apple on Tuesday morning took its online store off-line to get it ready to show off the new products the company will announce at the event . Historically, before each major press event, Apple temporarily closes its virtual store to update it with new products.

Check back later for our CNET live blog and read all of today's Apple news.

Apple is reportedly using today's event to announce new iPads. Apple is also expected to provide details on the launch of OSX Mavericks and could make an announcement on improvements to its MacBook Pro line. The Mac Pro, which Apple previewed earlier this year at the Worldwide Developers Conference , also might make a showing.

As expected, Apple has remained tight-lipped on its plans and has provided no indication of whether it'll announce any new products, let alone the long shots like the long-rumored iWatch and high-def Apple TV. The company's invitation to the event said only that it still has " a lot to cover ."

So, what will Apple announce at its special event? Come back here at 10 a.m. PT to join CNET and find out .
