App Store and iTunes Store Outage

Juli Clover:

Some iOS and Mac users are currently unable to access the App Store, Mac App Store, and iTunes Store, according to reports from MacRumors readers and Twitter users.


Apple’s system status page has not yet been updated to reflect any kind of outage and it is not clear how many users are affected.

Greg Barbosa:

Today’s outage comes a few weeks after a previous widespread outage took out Apple Music, iCloud Music Library, and iCloud. Apple has previously remained quiet when these outages occur, relying on using the System Status page to communicate to customers of any issues. Zac Hall had previously delved into how Apple should better handle these situations, especially when they expect customers to put more faith in them for future cloud-based services.

Luc Vandal:

Yesterday’s App Store sale numbers. Ouch! #outage

Previously: App Store Search Is Currently Broken.

Update (2018-06-18): Benjamin Mayo (Hacker News):

Apple Maps has been down for many hours today, causing mayhem for customers seemingly worldwide. Whilst Apple’s system status reports no issues, users across Twitter and Apple Support forums are finding that is currently impossible to search for locations or get directions. The map tiles appear to be loading normally, but points of interest and critical functions of the app are simply not working.
