The headings says it all. Presumably because they are updating it for the new iPad:

I'm sure it's not a technical requirement.  It's marketing.  And it works.

Are you sure... It doesn't appear to be back up for me yet?

I first noticed the Store down for updating at 5:00pm, I haven't seen it up again since then.

Also, it's worldwide.  i.e.. Australian and US Stores are also down for updates.

Yeah sorry, had some weird caching issue happening. It's quite a long downtime! Surely they could have had it ready so the downtime would be minimal

OK, it's back up now.

But can't see any changes in the NZ Store?

AU & US have the new iPad's listed - unless they were there before?

It appears they are selling the newly announced  Apple TV that does 1080p video.

They have been there for a week - I preordered Apple TV (3rd Gen) last Thursday.
