A number of users are reporting that several Apple services including Apple Music and content served via the Apple TV app are currently down. Apple has yet to update its System Status page to reflect any outages, but we will update this post as more information becomes available.


Apple Music users are seeing "Loading" text when trying to play tracks or browse, while users trying to view certain Apple TV+ content and movies rented through the TV app have seen their streams stop functioning.

Update 8:20 pm: While Apple has still yet to acknowledge the outage on its status page, users are reporting that the affected services are once again functioning normally.

8:24PM and Apple TV is just static, it’s down completely.
8:35PM and Apple TV is working again.
10 to 15 minutes down isn’t too bad, first time for us (but we’re not big TV viewers).

Okay, that's the 10th time in the month now , am i right ?

I'm guessing apple is shifting to a new backend. Or they just **** up

Why has this been happening so much recently?
It could be related to Apple. If I had to guess, I would say it is a problem with the Content Delivery Network Apple uses.

Edited because: I posted Content Development Network. I suspect my brain is suffering an outage.

Was listening to Miley’s New album and halfway through it just stopped loading anything at all. Still can’t access music

I was playing a song through my phone, then put on my AirPods Max and got a message indicating that I was playing Apple Music on another device (which wasn't true), and then it simply stopped playing.

It was down for me too for a little but now I want a partial refund from Apple for the disruption. Is that possible?
I was watching my newly purchased movie Dragons and Dungeons and it failed in last 20 minutes. It was down maybe 10-15 minutes at least before I could continue. No movies, tv shows would work on Apple TV @TheYayAreaLiving 🎗️
