The Apple Developer Portal has gone dark just ahead of WWDC 2015, likely to prepare for the new versions of development tools that will be required for today’s iOS, OS X, and Apple Watch development related announcements.
9to5Mac, who first noticed the Apple Developer Portal was down, also notes that posters from the WWDC venue indicate Watch OS will be featured prominently, and will be rebranded as “watchOS.”
New versions of Xcode, and Swift will likely be available at the developer portal following today’s keynote. The official Swift Twitter account teased something was in the works a few days ago:
Sorry we've been quiet for a while. Working on something…

Sadly, 9to5Mac notes that the Apple Online Store is NOT down, indicating no new hardware will be introduced today. (SIGH! No new Apple TV!)
MacTrast will be covering the WWDC 2015 Keynote today, starting at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern time. You can find out what we expect from the keynote here.
