It looks like this isn’t a great day to download apps from the App Store. According to the Apple’s developer status page, some users are currently unable to make purchases. Under a detailed timeline, Apple notes, “iTunes Store – Some Users are Affected.” It shows that this issue started at around 11:30 a.m. EDT and continues at the time of this writing. We’ll keep following this story and update this post as necessary. UPDATE: A lot more Apple services are having issues today including the App Store, iTunes Store, Mac App Store, Backup, iTunes in the Cloud, and iTunes Match. UPDATE 2: All Apple services have now been restored.
