If you woke up this morning unable to access your iCloud, iTunes, iBooks, App Store, Game Center, etc. you’re not alone. Apple is finally acknowledging the outage that’s been happening for hours. See status update here.
Disgruntled Apple users took to Reddit and Apple forums early this morning to report outages (which Apple effectively ignored on their status report page until moments ago) and instances where login services were timing out on both iOS and Mac App stores. At press time, Apple is reporting outages with iTunes, iBooks, the App Store, and the Mac App store affecting all users.
