The tech giant has confirmed that some customers may have trouble accessing its services at the moment
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) seems to be struggling with store services on a range of its variants. MacRumors reveals that the Apple Store is currently experiencing some issues with all services, including the App Store on iOS devices, Mac App Store, tvOS App Store on Apple TV, and the app-related Volume Purchase Program for business customers.
Apple customers in the United States, Canada, and a few other countries may encounter problems while trying to make purchases through the store since 5 AM Pacific Time. The tech giant has confirmed that some customers may have trouble accessing its services at the moment, and has mentioned details of the hold-up on its updated System Status page.
While the company is working to resolve the issues, we believe that such glitches may slow down Apple’s sales for its services, undermining the company’s credibility.
Apple has marked an event for September 7 where the tech industry expects to see the launch of the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. This further puts pressure on the company to improve its gaming services and operating systems, as well as the huge app stores from where high volumes of software and services can be obtained.
With new hardware – along with complimentary new generation operating systems such as the iOS 10 – expected to roll out by the end of the year, the iPhone maker should take effective measures to resolve the issues appearing on its application platforms.
Hopefully, the company will do all it can to ensure that issues like these do not resurface in the future as they seriously hurt the goodwill and reputation it has built over the years.
