Outage hits Apple services, including iCloud and App Store
11 March 2015 | 0
Reports of problems logging into a variety of Apple services, including the iOS and Mac app stores, iTunes, iCloud and even the company’s support scheduler, washed across the Internet today.
“I am trying to update one of my apps but when I get asked to sign into the Mac App Store I get a “Status_Code_Error” appear in red letters to the bottom of the login window,” reported someone identified only as xXDivineSparkXx in the first message of a long thread on Apple’s support forum, posted before 10am today.
Several hundred others chimed in – from locations across the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia – to report the same.
Technology news website Computerworld was unable to log into iTunes or the App Store at 1.15pm, seeing a different message: “The iTunes Store is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.”
Similar reports circulated among Apple registered developers, who said they were unable to log into iTunes Connect, the suite of online tools for submitting and managing apps in both the App Store and Mac App Store.
Apple did not immediately reply to a questions about the outage.
