Update, August 26 (08:28 am ET): MacRumors reports that the previous problem affecting Apple's online store has been resolved.

A report says Apple's online education store is down right now in the U.S., Canada, and the UK.

From MacRumors:

Apple customers in the U.S. and Canada are experiencing issues when attempting to purchase products through Apple's online education store, with multiple links currently broken.

The report says that the 'Buy' links to all of Apple's available hero products, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch are not working, and return 'Page Not Found' errors when selected.

The report says that users in the U.S., Canada, and the UK are reporting issues, as well as problems with the online refurbished store in the UK.

This seems likely to be a server-side issue affecting Apple, but we'll report back if there are any further updates.
