The Apple iOS App store goes down this morning

For many around the world, the Apple iOS App Store is down. We are not aware of any scheduled maintenance planned for the App Store on iOS so we can assume that Apple may be experiencing an outage.

The App Store on Mac does not seem to be affected by the outage it seems to only affect devices running iOS. I was able to update my Apps on my iPhone after accepting the error that said “Cannot connect to iTunes Store” however most have mentioned that they are unable to actually purchase and download new Apps.

Apple was recently working to negate a flaw in its in-app purchasing mechanism that would allow users to exploit free transactions. This outage could be Apple’s attempt to fix the problem without notice.

So far, there are confirmed App Store outages in the US, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, Kuwait, Germany, Canada, Taiwan, and Bulgaria.

I would not expect the store to be down long, so keep trying.

    Mine has been down for about 24 hours. It seems to also be affecting other apps requiring wifi access.
