As had been expected, Apple’s online store has gone down ahead of the expected announcement of new iPad Pro models via a press release in the Apple Newsroom.
Immediately following the online store’s going down, Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted what appeared to be a teaser for a new product announcement with the hashtag “#TakeNote.” Seemingly referring to the Apple Pencil and the notetaking capabilities of the iPad:

Yesterday, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman tweeted that Apple was planning to announce new iPad Pro models today. Since no event has been announced to unveil the new iPad Pro models, the announcement will likely occur in the form of an Apple Newsroom press release.
The new iPad Pro is expected to boast the same M2 chip as found in the MacBook Air and MagSafe wireless charging support. No major design changes are expected for the iPad Pro this year.
Apple is said to be planning a new 10th-generation entry-level iPad with a larger 10.5-inch display, a USB-C port, flat edges, an A14 Bionic chip, 5G support for cellular models, and possibly a Touch ID power button, and a landscape FaceTime camera. However, this device may not be announced today.
Gurman expects to see iPadOS 16 to be released to the public next week.
