It’s Not Just You, the Apple App Store Really Is Down

I woke up this morning to Twitter in a frenzy courtesy of Apple’s Servers! Apparently iTunes Connect is refusing logins, the iBooks store is not responding, and I cannot download Temple run Oz!

Feel Free to look at Down Detector’s reports

In the meantime, we will update this post when everything at the App Store is fixed.
