iTunes, Beats1 and Apple TV Faced Interruption Due to Apple Services Outage

iTunes, Beats1 radio and the Apple app store were been unavailable for some Apple users Tuesday morning as Apple is facing disruptions of may of its services. Apple TV, the iBooks Store, OS X software updates and the Mac App Store were also affected by the outage.

Service disruptions started around 6:45 a.m. PT, according to Apple’s system status page, which stated that the company is “investigating and will update the status as more information becomes available.” Services became available again some time after 10 a.m.

Beats1 struck a deal with MTV to announce the MTV Music Awards nominees on air Tuesday morning, leading some to speculate that an influx in listeners could have led to the outage across the Apple services ecosystem.

The outage came just hours ahead of Apple announcing its Q2 2015 earnings; the company is expected to once again deliver big numbers fueled by sales of its latest iPhone models. Apple also recently began to sell the Apple watch, but the company isn’t expected to break out sales numbers for the wearable.

Update, 11:03 a.m.: This story was updated with additional information after the outage concluded.
