…and now the App Store purchasing is down (FaceTime too) (Update: Back up)

Completing the iCloud/iMessage/App Store trifecta, readers reported that they are not able to make purchases on the App Store. We have been able to confirm that the App Store is working for us, but we are, like many of our readers, unable to make a purchase.

This follows a poor day for Apple in which iCloud email is gone for some and iMessages is (again) being flaky.

Update: FaceTime appears to be down too. There are clearly some big troubles with the Apple ID system.

Update 2: App Store purchasing appears to be back up.
