    According to Apple's System Status Page, some users are unable to access the App Store, iTunes Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store. iTunes Match, iTunes Radio, and iTunes in the Cloud also appear to be experiencing issues.

    App Store users were also seeing problems accessing apps on Tuesday, making this the second outage the sore has seen this week. Problems appear to have began at approximately 1:30 PM Pacific Time, and are ongoing.

    Apple does not say how many users are affected by the outage, but there are multiple reports of problems on Twitter and other social networking sites. Some users are not experiencing any issues, however, and appear to be able to access all services without a problem.

    Update 5:40 PM PT: Apple's System Status page suggests the outage is now over.

    iTunes match still doesn't work regardless of what the status page says.

    I wasn't aware of any issues, and just checked the MAS, iTunes Store and App Store, and, for me, they're working fine. Hopefully, they'll get their issues resolved quickly for those who are affected.

    Works for me, but on the iTunes app store, apps that I have bought, don't show up as bought and downloadable.

    I resigned in and it worked as before.

    While it may very well be unrelated, Siri is also down for me.

    I started having this issue around 3PM Pacific when I tried downloading updates and a previously downloaded app. It would think for a few seconds then just stop. At that point the page didn't say anything about an outage. I called support and they weren't much help. Eventually they downloaded but I haven't tried downloading anything since then.

    Apple must be moving people around to new servers.... For new products to take effect. I noticed a few days ago my iTunes Radio list that was pretty stable went bonkers like it was a brand new station for a few days... Then it "rembered" what it was doing in time to start being glitchy.

    Eh', it happens every now and then. Not necessarily news.

    Okay that's fine if you want to post Samsung news, I get it. But how is a 5 minute outage for iTunes radio newsworthy?

    My laughter was only broken by iTunes forcing me to do my daily Genius reset/Match update.

    while in the US, have a few stations created based on dutch artists. Before the last outage, it was a repeating list of around 30 songs, and didn't know a difference between dutch and german songs. Since September 1, around the first outage, the stations play many new songs, many more artists and no mix of german and dutch any longer. Seems to me iTunes Radio is expanding in Europe on the 9th or shortly there after and it looks like the outages have to do with changes to the infrastructure to better support the expansion.

    I'm not able to access the iTunes Store right now from my Mac, iPhone and iPad. Is anyone else experiencing the same? Apple's System Status page doesn't show any problems yet.
