Update 3: Apple seems to have finally resolved the issue. iTunes is back up.

Join the club. Numerous users are reporting iTunes is currently unavailable.

So in case you can’t turn on your Apple TV, update your apps or buy your favorite album – you’re not the only one.

Apple hasn’t confirmed the outage on the official iTunes Twitter account, but the Twitterverse has taken notice.

Check out the screenshot below to see areas where users have reported the interruption.

The official Apple status page doesn’t seem to indicate the issue either, so it’s likely the outage is intermittent.

We’ll keep you posted as the service gets back up. Hopefully, everything gets back to normal soon.

Meanwhile… find something else to do. Duh.

Update: Apple doesn’t seem to be acknowledging the issue, but there’s clearly something going around.

Meanwhile, reports keep stacking.

As users on Twitter suggest, the outage might have something to do with today’s iPhone 7 madness.

Update 2 (19:35 ET): Apple has finally confirmed its servers are experiencing downtime on the official status page.
