What you need to know

  • Apple's services went down for the second day in a row.
  • Both Apple Music and the App Store were down for multiple users today.
  • Apple experienced an even larger outage yesterday.

If you have been having issues accessing some of Apple's services today, you're not alone.

Apple appears to be experiencing issues with its services for the second day in a row. According to users on Twitter, both Apple Music and the App Store experienced an outage earlier this evening. In addition, Downdetector shows that the outage may have affected at least iCloud, Apple Maps, Apple TV+, and Apple Support.

While the outage lasted for at least an hour, it appears that Apple has resolved all of the issues affecting its services according to the System Status (opens in new tab) page.

This is the second day in a row that the company's services have experienced an outage. Yesterday, even more of Apple's services went down for a portion of the day.

It's currently unclear what the cause of either outage is.
