- iOS users report issues with Apple Music and the App Store
- The outage appears to be worldwide, but the number of users hit is not yet clear
Apple Music and App Store have been hit with a worldwide outage.
Hundreds of thousands of users cannot listen to their favorite tunes or download new apps.
DownDetector monitors online outages and shows issues began around 2 pm ET and are impacting the server connection.
Apple’s service page shows no problems with system status, but people are flocking to Twitter to share their frustrations with features not working correctly.

DownDetector shows reports are flooding from several countries, from Canada to Spain and China.
The UK is among the nations with the outage, and issues are reported in New York City, Los Angeles and other major US cities.
DownDetectors shows more than 3,000 issue reports as of 2:22 pm ET.
Affected users received a ‘can’t connect right now’ error message when loading or searching for content across some Apple apps.
Many iOS users flocked to Twitter to see if others were experiencing the same issues.
Tommy Rugiada shared that Monday was the first time he had Apple Music, and the service went down.
While others thought the issue was their own WiFi but realized the apps had been hit with an outage.
DownDetector shows 92 percent of issue reports link server connection, seven percent of the website, and a small two percent of users cannot log in.
Apple rarely experiences issues, but lately, the tech giant’s services have seemed glitchy.
Last month its Weather app crashed for the second time in 48 hours.
Instead of showing live forecasts, the app displayed a blank screen with users’ selected locations.
While the System Status site for Apple indicated no issues, many users shared the outage on Twitter – which appears to be the same for Monday’s issues.
