A number of Apple’s online services have suddenly gone offline, with websites and online tools no longer accessible and services like Apple Music encountering errors when trying to stream songs.
At around 1:24pm eastern, AppleInsider noticed the official Apple newsroom was inaccessible, displaying a message advising the page “cannot be found.” Shortly after, other areas of Apple’s online existence stopped working or were unavailable.
In further checks by AppleInsider staff, Apple’s developer site also became unavailable, and the official System Status page that usually displays issues with servers is also offline.
Apple Music is also affected by the outage, with attempts to play music not downloaded to a device displaying errors. One error advised that “A server with the specified hostname could not be found.”
AppleInsider has contacted Apple to query about the server issues and for a possible timeframe for fixes.
