This is very frustrating. We are not able to download apps from App Store, as we keep getting error message "The AppStore is temporarrily unavailable. Please try again". I falied also to login to App Store.

I log in to Member Center, but fail to login to "iTunes Connect-Submit and manage your apps on the App Store."

It it app store which has issue or it is the app.

  • App Store is back online. – IconDaemon Mar 11 '15 at 13:41
  • @IconDaemon Both app stores still down at 1536 GMT – Mark Mar 11 '15 at 15:37
  • Well, it's working in the NE US. Perhaps its an Akamai problem. – IconDaemon Mar 11 '15 at 16:59
  • And it's down again. – IconDaemon Mar 11 '15 at 17:07

There is a major (worldwide and lasting more than an hour) disruption with all the App Stores showing as down on Apple's status page. For future reference, it was clear there were issues with the store for more than an hour before the status page showed that outage.

The good news is that the history is backdated showing when the issues started and also that some of the outages have been resolved already.

My guess right now is it's not just you.

I'm getting STATUS_CODE_ERROR & an eternally spinning login…

… as are all these people - https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6868907

Google gives a lot of news hits for "app store down"

Doesn't seem to be affecting iOS 8.2 downloads - mine is coming through just fine right now. Thought that may have been related, but appears not.

Update 17:30 GMT - Apple Service Status now shows App Store as down - https://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/

Update 18:45 - source The Telegraph

The problems are estimated to be costing Apple more than $4m (£2.7m) in lost sales from iTunes and the App Store. With these systems down, users are unable to buy new apps or install updates to ones that they already own. They will also be unable to buy music or videos from iTunes.
Apple has apologised for the problems. In a statement, it said: "We are apologise to our customers experiencing problems with iTunes and other services this morning. The cause was an internal DNS error at Apple.
"We're working to make all of the services available to customers as soon as possible, and we thank everyone for their patience."


The App Store is unavailable for me in the US. No indication at the Apple System Status Page that there is a problem.
