Apple Music Down for Some Users [Update: Resolved]

Apple Music is experiencing an outage at the current time, and according to Apple's System Status page, some users may experience intermittent issues with the service.

apple music
A number of Apple device owners are not able to use ‌Apple Music‌ at the current time, and there are many complaints on Twitter and other social networks about the outage. Apple updated the System Status page to reflect an issue at approximately 8:40 a.m. Pacific Time, but people have been having problems for much longer.

The App Store is also listed as experiencing issues, which is perhaps the explanation for why ‌App Store‌ privacy labels seem to have mysteriously disappeared earlier this morning.

There is no word on when Apple will address the outage, but we'll update this article when ‌Apple Music‌ and the ‌App Store‌ are functioning as intended.

Update: Apple now says the issues have been resolved, with the outages lasting from approximately 1:!5 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Is planet Earth still rotating on its axis? OK, good. Life goes on.
So just because it is not a life threatening situation, service providers are not to be held accountable for the services they get PAID to provide and sustain?

You are just the kind of customer ANY lousy service provider would love to have!

You're just the kind of reader hyperbolic whiners love. All services have issues occasionally: it's the nature of the technology. Having a meltdown every time the internet hiccups isn't healthy.
Don't see anyone having a meltdown, but feels dumb just to note "the world keeps spinning".

All my songs in my Favorites are downloaded to the phone so I didn't notice the outage.
