Some Apple services experienced another outage Tuesday, just a day after much of Apple’s services and online infrastructure were taken offline on Monday. Apple’s system status page says the issues with Apple Music, Podcasts, Books and the App Store have been resolved, nearly two hours after they began affecting some users.
Thankfully, iMessage, iCloud, Apple Maps, and Apple TV aren’t as outlandish as they were on Monday. During the outage, Apple also warned there were issues with Weather, Game Center, Apple Card, and the iCloud web apps, saying they might be “slow or unavailable.” These issues are now also marked as solved.
During the outage, Apple Music worked for some edge Employees, but not others, and quite a few of us had problems trying to download apps or updates from the App Store. Usually, the progress circle just spins continuously and returns to a download or update button after failing. Now, some Verge employees are reporting that Apple Music is back up and running for them and I’ve been able to download around 30 app updates with no issues.
down detector confirmed our experience, which shows nearly a thousand other people reporting issues with the Apple Store and Apple Music. By 5:30 p.m. ET, however, the number of people reporting problems had dropped dramatically.
Update Mar 22 7:02pm ET: Updated to reflect that Apple has marked the issues as resolved.
Update Mar 22 5:51pm ET: Added information about Weather and iCloud Web App issues.
