With just hours to go until Apple's iPad event, the Apple Store is down and is greeting visitors with the usual "We'll be back" sign. We expect that the site will remain down until Apple's keynote has ended, and that it'll be showing off some all-new iPads and some new Macs when it comes back online.

Apple is expected to launch the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2, as well as new Retina MacBook Pros at its event tonight, which will kick off at 6pm here in the UK. We should also find out the release date and pricing for both the new Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks.

The event is being held at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center from 6pm BST today. You can tune in to our live feed for up-to-the-minute news from the event. We'll also be bringing you UK pricing and release dates, as well as expert opinions on the new products.

Here's what we expect to see when the Apple Store returns later today:

iPad 5

Today could be the day that Apple gives its full-size iPad a proper makeover for the first time since 2011. Leaked images suggest that the iPad 5 will be getting a lighter, slimmer design with thinner bezels, bringing its look more in-line with the iPad mini's design.

Internally, the iPad 5 should have some spec boosts too, including a new processor and maybe a new camera.

iPad mini 2

We'll also be looking out for a new iPad mini. The iPad mini 2 could have a Retina display, although there has been some debate about that. It'll probably look the same on the outside, but could have a new processor and maybe a better camera too.

New MacBook Pro with Retina display

The MacBook Pro is one of the only Macs left without the new Haswell processors, so we expect Apple will be updating the MacBook Pro today, too. Will Apple ditch the non-Retina MacBook Pro? That's another question we're awaiting the answer to, but it's certainly a possibility.

New Mac mini

The Mac mini also hasn't had a Haswell update yet, so we could see a new Mac mini launched today.

New Mac Pro

We've already seen the new Mac Pro, as Apple previewed it earlier this year at WWDC 2013. However, we still don't know the new Mac Pro's price or release date, so we think we'll find out more about it tonight.

Alongside the new Mac Pro we may also see a new monitor from Apple.

OS X Mavericks release date

OS X Mavericks could be available today, if our sources are correct. Look out for OS X Mavericks on the Mac App Store following Apple's keynote this evening. We definitely think that Apple will let us know the release date for the new Mac operating system, which was also previewed at WWDC this year, at tonight's event.

New iWork and iLife

iWork and iLife are also due an update, and it looks like tonight could be their lucky night. We've seen redesigned icons for iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages and Numbers on Apple's website, so we think some sort of update is imminent.

New Apple TV

There's some chatter about a new Apple TV, too, but the reports are mixed about this one.
