Apple Music just stopped working for me through iTunes with the error message, "Unable to connect to iCloud Music Library." No amount of restarting and re-signing in to iCloud fixes it.

Anyone else having this issue?

Looks like there are issues with multiple services of Apple at the moment. I've been trying to sign in to my Apple ID, but keep getting message reads "The iTunes Store is unable to process purchases at this time. Please try again later."

Even earlier when I signed in to the account, no purchase or code redemption can be made without having the mentioned message popping up.

Hopefully they will fix it soon.

that message keeps popping up unless I sign out. But then I can't listen to music... not sure what to do here....

This was happening for me yesterday too. Really frustrating when Apple's status page shows everything green. At least today they're actually reporting the problems. I never have issues like this with OneDrive and never had them with Google Play Music All Access. Why is Apple having such a hard time keeping things up and running all the time?

Ironically, i started experiencing similar Apple Music issues earlier this week. Many Apple music songs disappeared from playlists on my phone. Additionally 95% of my playlists dupped displaying "_1." Then all of sudden i started getting an error about my iCloud Music Library, stating: "iCloud Music Library can't be enabled. You can enable it later from Music in Settings. Until then, your music won't be available on your other devices." What's odd is those deleted songs still appear in my library on iTunes my mac but were somehow magically deleted from playlists both on my phone and mac.

Chatting with Apple Support but it appears that iCloud has been having issues. Anyone experiencing similar issues with their Music/Apple Music playlists?

I'm having this issue but I think it's directly related to my ipp since it's not an issue on my phone.

I tired everything
