    04:20 am - APPLE STORE DOWN

    The Apple Store website goes down ahead of Apple Keynote.

    The full text on Apple’s website says:

    Our virtual doors are just about to open. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your patience as we work to get everyone in as quickly as possible. Keep checking back, because it won’t be long now.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    11:33 pm - EVENT INFORMATION

    We recommend NOT updating to iOS 9.3 as it will most likely be dropped to the public tomorrow.
    Why? As you know PanGu has released iOS 9.1 Jailbreak to the public last week, PanGu may release a 9.2.1 Jailbreak or a 9.3 Jailbreak (or maybe even both?) but we recommend staying on your current firmware. We aren't sure if they will bring a release out yet but it's better to stay on the safe side.

    If you are updating to 9.3 make sure to back up your device using iTunes.
    Not long until the March 21 event now.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5.30 pm EVENT INFORMATION

    ModMyi Staff Writer and Member, Caiden Spencer will be here LIVE at 10:00 AM PDT to talk about the latest on Keynote March of 2016 discussing everything Apple related, here is the link to Apple's website where the Keynote will take place.

    I will be taking over the FRONT PAGE of ModMyi as you can probably see with a FULL DISPLAY in the "Section Page" or "Front Page" as you may know it. On behalf of the team at ModMyi we are sincerely sorry about the lack of activity happening on the Forum. I'm also sincerely sorry that not much Jailbreak news or reviews have been happening, hopefully everything changes once the forum is redesigned which is happening in the coming months.

    Hope to see you there!

    ** All times are shown in PDT.

      Well I'm
      Happy with my iPad mini 4 and I'll be checking out the bands for the Apple Watch even though I probably won't get a new band as I'm happy with the sport for now and interested to see the new SE phone and what specs it runs and possible 2.2 for the watch.

      I know this isn't a flagship, but it'd still be nice to have something cooler than small iPhone 6s.
