Apple services down including iTunes and the App Store
Oh dear! Ahead of Apple this evening announcing their 3rd Quarter financial results they're experiencing a huge outage across many of their services including iTunes, App Store and iBooks.
There's been no word yet when the services will be restored but you can keep an eye on the status of all Apple services on this link. They have of course already provided the obligatory "We are investigating and will update the status as more information becomes available." line.
After this Apple might want to rethink their tagline for Beats 1 radio station..."worldwide, always on". Yeh. No.
