Apple has announced that the App Store and other services are now operational following a temporary outage.

Apple has successfully resolved the temporary outage that impacted its App Store services on iOS and MacOS devices. This issue, which occurred on Wednesday, caused disruptions for users attempting to access the store. Apple addressed the situation promptly and restored functionality by 7:35 p.m. ET.

The company acknowledged the problem through an update on its system status page, indicating that investigations were ongoing. Users reported encountering error messages when trying to open the App Store on their iPhones. Despite previous similar incidents, Apple was quick to rectify the issue this time around.

In the latest quarterly report, Apple revealed that 19% of its revenue is derived from the Services category, which includes earnings from the App Store. While developers retain the revenue generated from applications on the store, Apple earns a commission on app purchases and in-app transactions.

Aside from the App Store, other Apple services such as Apple TV+, Apple Music, and Apple Podcasts also experienced technical difficulties. This comes amidst a challenging period for Apple, with its stock declining by 12% this year while the S&P 500 index has shown growth. In addition, the company faced legal challenges as the U.S. Justice Department sued Apple, alleging anti-competitive practices related to the iPhone’s dominance in the market.
