UPDATE 09/09/2022 09:14 ET: The momentary Apple Services blip is now over. Reports are back to baseline and the Apple Store is back. Have fun ordering your new iPhone.
Downdetector shows a spike in complaints for several Apple services, for about 35 minutes. These include the App Store and the Apple Store. The outages also appear to be affecting Apple Support.
It’s no surprise that Apple’s servers are under strain today. Indeed, the iPhone 14 is up for pre-order today, along with the Apple Watch Series 8 and the new AirPods Pro.
There has been no official word from the company regarding the outages at this time. Hopefully everything will resolve and be up and running shortly.
