Apple store services are down this morning

UPDATE: It appears that services came back up at about 8 AM PT.

Apple has updated its System Status page to reflect that certain services are currently unavailable. The issues seem to be most related to stores, and the issues started a little over an hour ago at about 6:55 AM PT/ 9:55 AM ET. 

According to the detailed timeline, all store services are down for some users. The note says that "Users may be unable to access the above stores/services or make purchases. The services in question include:

  • App Store

We'll update this post when the issues are resolved.
