Apple confirms the iTunes Store is currently down for some users


Update (15/10/2015): Apple services again experiencing outages across App Store, iTunes Store and more services as reported by their system status page. Not a good week for Apple’s cloud uptime.

Following a similar outage yesterday, some iTunes users are continuing to experience service disruptions as Apple confirms the downtime. Apple recently updated its system status page tracking issues with its services, stores and iCloud to note the ongoing problem with the iTunes store for some users:

“Users are experiencing a problem with the service listed above. We are investigating and will update the status as more information becomes available.”

The outage has been affecting some users since around 12pm ET, according to Apple, and is yet to be resolved.

Yesterday a number of users reported experiencing issues with Apple’s online services but Apple didn’t detail the problems on its status page.

We’ll update here if Apple confirms the problem as resolved.

      If only more people could appreciate the sheer complexities of keeping these services online, as you do. /s

        How many times this year has Google services gone down versus iCloud/iTunes? What about a smaller company… dropbox… how many times versus iCloud and iTunes? What about Microsoft? What about Facebook? What about Amazon?

        iCloud and/or iTunes goes down pretty much every week. Give me a freakin’ break. It’s not even remotely close.

        How about Spotify? Hulu? Netflix?

        I can keep the list going dude. Apple is wonderful for most things, but cloud services? They suck, and it’s their #1 weakness by far.

        So yes, I am more than justified in complaining. This is piss poor work for the #1 tech company in the world.

  2. According to the system status page the iTunes Store is back online.
