Your iTunes Store problems on Friday were not yours alone. The iTunes Store, plus Apple’s App Store, the Mac App Store, and iBooks Store suffered unscheduled downtime at the end of the work week.
Took a six-hour nap, they did. The piece, written as the outage was ‘outaging’, I guess, said:
Customers attempting to connect to iTunes are being met with error messages, while others find themselves unable to complete App Store transactions.
Friday’s sleepy time marked the third time Apple’s internet services went down so far this month. Earlier in the month Apple Music was unusable for some people due to authentication problems tied to iCloud Music Library. The next day, the piece says, an apparent server glitch took down a huge swath of the company’s internet services, including almost all iCloud related products.
