Apple’s system status page is displaying problems with a significant number of cloud services. At the time of writing, it is showing ‘intermittent issues’ for ‘some users’ for the following services:
- App Store
- Apple Music
- Apple TV
- iTunes in the Cloud
- iTunes Store
- iTunes U
- Mac App Store
- Volume Purchase Program …
Additionally, the corresponding page for developers is showing a similar message for both In-App Purchases and iTunes Sandbox.
When small numbers of users are affected, Apple generally indicates this with a percentage. In the past, for example, it has noted that an issue affects ‘fewer than 1% of users.’ The fact that it has not done so here suggests that significant numbers of users are being hit.
Problems began yesterday, with Down Detector showing that 41% of those reporting a problem to its monitoring service were experiencing issues with downloads, 33% finding that the store won’t load or open, and 25% unable to login.
If you’re experiencing issues, please let us know the details in the comments.
