The App Store And iTunes Outage Ends After Being Down For 11 Hours
The App Store and iTunes was down for over 11 hours affecting several of Apple’s online services, but is now back up and running like normal.
It was reported that both iTunes and the App Store was down starting around 5 a.m. EDT Wednesday morning, and customers found themselves unable to purchase or download items from iTunes, the App Store, or the iBooks Store. The outage also disrupted iCloud sign in and Mail, though most iCloud services remained unaffected.
Apple apologized for the outage, saying that it was due to a DNS issue. Apple’s system status page now reads all-clear, with the issues apparently resolved a little after 4 p.m. EDT.
