Apple’s App Stores Are Down [January 14, 2013]
Both the iOS App Store and the Mac App Store are acting up today
Apple’s iCloud services have become unstable as of 10:00 (GMT+2) causing both the company’s App Stores to act up when trying to access applications on the venue. Such outages have been a common occurrence in recent months.As Apple continues to struggle to maintain its cloud services, the company’s Mac App Store is returning the following error today: “We could not complete your App Store request. The App Store is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.”
The iOS App Store says, “You do not have permission to access the requested resource. There was an error in the iTunes Store. Please try again later.”
At the moment, Apple’s System Status page for services, stores and iCloud says everything is fine on the App Store front. And while the iTunes music store is running OK, the App Stores are not.
