Apple apologizes for continuing iTunes service outage, says DNS error to blame
The outage, which began just before 5 a.m. EDT, also hit iCloud account and sign in, as well as iCloud Mail, though service seems to have been restored to both of those. In a comment to iMore, an Apple spokesperson says that the company is working to fix the problem, which was caused by a DNS error.
The disruption, which Apple says currently affects all users, prevents people from downloading or purchasing content from the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and Mac App Store.
