App Store, iTunes Store, Apple Music and More Experiencing Downtime [Update: Outage is Over]

The App Store, iTunes, Apple Music, and other Apple services appear to be experiencing downtime right now, with multiple MacRumors readers reporting outages across multiple systems.

When attempting to access the App Store, users are receiving a message that it can't be reached, while Apple Music says "We've run into a problem" when attempting to access the For You or Browse features. As for iTunes, streaming iTunes content was interrupted and can't be reaccessed.


The outage appears to be affecting Apple customers in multiple countries, including the United States, the UK, and Germany. Given the volume of reports, most if not all users seem to be unable to access Apple's services.

Apple's System Status page is not reporting an outage at this time, and it is not known how long Apple's services will be down for. We'll update this post when the App Store, iTunes, Apple Music and other features are once again functional.

And Apple wants to grow their services business?!? They can’t seem to manage what they have. LOL


No company promises 100% uptime, or else they are lying. I suspect Apple's uptime exceeds the max 99.9% that most companies promise.

So?

Amazon isn't experiencing reduced growth in iPhones, iMacs, etc. so services growth is a bigger deal for Apple going forward (which they've publicly stated). I guess you don't follow Q results/reports.

Not to mention, there's a huge difference between a massive network load on a Cyber Monday vs a Tuesday night. LOL.

Very frustrating, was watching a just bought movie and suddenly it stopped playing. A good njimber of minutes on the phone still waiting for a rep to answer...
Apple is definitely going down, they need a reality check and bring back what it used to be.
