All iTunes Stores (And Mac App Store) Down, Will Lion Be There When They Return?

All iTunes Stores (And Mac App Store) Down, Will Lion Be There When They Return?

Apple’s iOS App Store, Mac App Store, and iTunes store are all down for the count, with initial reports having come in around 2 PM eastern. The store is accessible and can be opened, but no apps can be purchased or installed.

App updates are also affected, though available updates do appear on the updates tab, and I can confirm, having tried all three stores, that the rumors certainly seem to be true. Oddly, some users are reporting that installations are working sporadically, while others are not able to install any apps at all.

There aren’t a ton of reasons why all of Apple’s content stores would go down in the middle of the day, mid-week, shortly before WWDC. I suspect that something big is in the pipes – perhaps they are prepping OS X Lion for immediate download?

What do you think? Sound off in the comments.

    Yes your right!!… UK not able to update any apps…. Oooohhh so exciting 

  2. Cody Harrell says:

    I don’t think OS X Lion will be put in the app store before they announce it. Apple isn’t known for their surprise launches, especially with big updates and definitely not before  they show off the new features at a conference.

    Ohhh… short lived… its working now…..

    What will it be?

  6. Home says:

    I’ve just updated my apps with the german app-store (Mac & iPhone)

  7. Alex says:

    Ok… all back to normal, no big changes on my iPad at least… can update and purchase apps normally, maybe just a hiccup…
