In the evening there was a serious failure in the work of Apple services. The App Store, Music, Apple TV+, Maps, Latitude, Weather, Files and iCloud services have become partially or completely unavailable to users. The problem affected Apple customers in Europe, Asia, the US and Russia.
It is noteworthy that a few minutes after the start of the global outage around the world, the statuses of services on the Apple website were displayed as working.
It wasn't until half an hour after the crash that Apple's status page began to change. Partially not working there now: App Store, Arcade, Music, TV+, iCloud Calendar, iCloud Contacts, iCloud Mail, iTunes Store, Podcasts, Radio.
The statuses of affected systems continue to be updated.
The broken services status indicates that users may experience intermittent problems with various services. For example, already downloaded tracks and playlists are not loaded into Apple Music, some sections are not available or they work with errors. No apps can be found, downloaded, or installed in the App Store and TestFlight, and app updates are not available. Also, the Apple Developer, AppStore Connect, and iCloud portals do not open. Certificates are not validated in Xcode.
The experts explained that the problem is related to DNS - some users have encountered a DNS Resolve Failure error.
