    Apple has updated its System Status page to indicate that some users may be experiencing "intermittent issues" with the App Store, iTunes, Apple Music, and select other services in the United States and other countries.

    The issues began shortly before 11 a.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, according to Apple. During this time, some iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV users may be unable to access the handful of Apple services listed below.

    o App Store
    o Apple Music
    o iTunes in the Cloud
    o iTunes Store
    o iTunes U
    o Mac App Store
    o Volume Purchase Program

    Update: Apple has updated its System Status page to indicate that the intermittent issues are now resolved.

    Now I wonder if it has to do with the phishing email I received this morning from "Apple"

    I can confirm Apple Music is having some issues. I encountered it on the ride into work this am.

    Thankfully this appears to be isolated, as I had no idea anything was going on.

    I've only been using iOS 11 for a few days now, and already I miss the old iTunes and App Store icons. :(

    I wonder how many hackers are trying to bring Apple down. Must be a lot of attacks on their servers every minute of the day.

    Maybe the new App Store can just stay down forever. Still trying to understand why Apple thinks people are interested in reading about apps when most won’t even drop 99 cents on one.

    I can confirm all of these services having issues.

    I think the type of isssue can be fixed at management level.

    I doubt this is related but both of my phones this morning wouldn't display the time / date on the lock screen? Did a restart and problem was fixed but still seems odd that both phones experienced the same issue.

    I wonder if this is related to the fact I can see past purchases in my account even though they were from another country before I switched my country associated to the applied. This wasn’t previously possible, and I sure hope it is now permanent. If anyone wants to regain access to prior purchases log out and back in and everything will suddenly reappear. Perhaps redownload everything just in case they disappear again.

    So I guess now isn't a good time to restore my iphone using itunes 12.7, with no locally stored apps?

    Must be region specific - all services working normally for me in the UK.

    Those really have picked up a lot in the last 3-4 weeks. They're well crafted, unfortunately. I can see quite a few people getting fooled with those.

    The first thing I noticed a few hours ago was my Safari history (through iCloud) on my Mac has all gone missing... It's all there on my iPhone still. Checked the Apple system status page straight away and saw these other issues
    I'm still on Sierra and iOS 10.

    On iOS 11? Don't touch buggy software

    I had issues yesterday. Account page from iTunes kept getting an error, and a movie I added through my connected DisneyMoviesAnywhere account took about three hours to show up as available for download in iTunes. Usually it's a matter of seconds.

    Several months ago it was reported here and all over that Apple had cut ties with a china sever supplier due to back doors and a fake patch they downloaded. So Apple is a major target.

    I still have the issue where I can’t look at new app reviews but still have to slog through 2-6 years old, now irrelevant, reviews.
