temporarily unavailable

Update: Looks like everything is back to normal.

If you’re trying to download or update an app from the App Store right now, you might be greeted with the unpleasant message that “this feature is temporarily unavailable,” inviting you to try again later. If you are experiencing this issue, know that you aren’t the only one as many have been reporting the exact same problem for over an hour now.

Apple System Status doesn’t report any outage at this time, but we can only imagine that will change soon.

At this point, our advice is to just sit patiently and wait for Apple to fix this issue on their end.

    Good. I mean not good but at least I’m not going crazy.

    Jesus, again?! That’s like the 4th time in the last 7 days! At least for me…

    It’s back online for me as of 5:02 EST

  • Same thing happened yesterday morning with their cloud service, it went down completely. It would tell you to login but wouldn’t allow you to. It was fixed within an hour so it wasn’t a big deal, but their website didn’t show it as being down either.

    • Is that what happened with my iCloud music?

      • Yep I believe that was part of it, in fact it went down again early this morning. I verified this with a few friends before heading to work just to make sure it wasn’t me who is having issues. It makes you wonder if Apple is working on their services at different times to fix things or if they are having issues of some kind.

    The service interruption comes as Apple prepares to launch a new App Store on tvOS with the new Apple TV launching on Friday

    The “Apple System Status” page is a frigging joke. It only shows errors once thousands of users start to complain.

      Judging by your past posts, I actually thought you were smarter than that.
