Apple's iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore Suffer Outage
Have you been struggling to properly access one of Apple's digital stores? If so, you're not alone. Hours ago, around 20 percent of users were unable to download songs, apps, or e-books from the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBookstore. The figure comes from Apple's online system status page, which places the period of downtime between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. PDT. Apple's page also indicates that the issue has been resolved, meaning users should no longer be encountering problems when accessing any of the company's digital stores. Apple's iCloud saw a brief period of outage earlier today, too. Since the online service launched, users have often suffered intermittent iCloud outages affecting iMessages, email, iCloud sync, and more. The iTunes Store, App Store, and iBookstore, however, should now be back on form once again. Did the above issue stop you downloading an app or installing an update?
