Apple Music and the App Store are suffering another outage


A few of Apple’s services are experiencing another outage, just one day after a good chunk of Apple’s services and online infrastructure were knocked offline on Monday. Currently, Apple’s system status page says that Apple Music, Podcasts, Books, and the App Store are the ones having issues since 5:09PM ET. It lists the issue as ongoing and says that “some users are affected.”

Thankfully, iMessage, iCloud, Apple Maps, and Apple TV seem to be working fine, but those looking for an app or song may be out of luck.

While Apple Music worked fine for at least two Verge staff members (one reported it being a bit slow, but that’s not abnormal for the service), quite a few of us encountered issues trying to download apps or updates from the App Store. Usually, the progress circle would just spin continuously and then return to a download or update button after failing. Once or twice the downloads would start but would run at a glacially slow pace.

The graph for Apple Music is largely the same shape.

Downdetector backed up our experience, showing almost a thousand other reports that the two services were having issues.

We’ll let you know when there’s more information from Apple on the outage or when it seems to be resolved.
