Apple's App Store and iTunes Store Currently Experiencing Connectivity Issues

Posted by · 8447 views · Translate
It appears that Apple's App Store and iTunes Store are both currently experiencing connectivity issues. The issue seems to be persistent across iOS and Desktop machines as well as the Apple TV. Attempts to access different parts of the store will either throw a "Cannot connect to App Store" message or "The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store."

This issue does seem to be isolated, so some users may not be experiencing connectivity problems. Most reports on Twitter seem to be focused around the Featured Section and Top Charts.

Trying to purchase some songs, books and movies also throws an error. Interestingly enough, the Apple System Status page reports no issues. Earlier today, some users had troubles downloading the Skype update, but users found deleting the app then downloading it resolved any issues.

Let us know if you are having problems in the comments section below! We'll let you know when things seem back to normal.

I had the problem when switching to a new user on AppleTV. It has since corrected itself.
