According to an update on Apple's status page posted at 10:27 a.m. ET Friday morning, the company said that "users are experiencing a problem with this service" and that it is "investigating this issue." Downdetector.com, which monitors online services for outages, noted issues with connecting to the App Store in parts of Europe and the United States.

CNET staffers in New York and San Francisco were able to access the store without issues Friday afternoon, but an editor in Texas encountered error messages when trying to access the App Store and Apple Music on Friday. Both services have since returned.
