App Store: “iTunes Store is Unavailable”

November 22nd, 2008 · 4 Comments · Apple, iPhone

UPDATE: Alright guys, I feel that the App Store is good enough to expire my warning. It’s running alright, not perfect, there are still some errors downloading and updating applications.

Alright guys, this is what I have on my iPod touch. I have also been hearing reports of this from all updaters, and some people that haven’t updated. It appears that Apple has disabled the updating feature on the App Store. The reason for this is that they are most likely trying to relieve their servers as much as they can, due to the 30+ million people trying to download firmware. (Remember, iPhone OS wasn’t the only thing updated today, iTunes, Apple TV, and more were updated at the same time)

So hang on guys. Wait until tomorrow or Sunday morning. I did manage to update my applications through iTunes 8.0.2 at about 3:45pm today, but since then I can’t even update Genius it’s so crowded. So good luck trying to update anything for atleast 24 hours. I’ll update this post when Apple has re-enabled the “Update” feature on the App Store application.

    wow they updated EVERYTHING pretty much on the same day???? ARE they out of their minds…. i guess they kinda tried to prepare themselves for a possible server crash but still… have we had any reports on the servers crashing yet? lol

    Yeah. I guess they never learn. Their servers went nuts on July 11th, dont they remember that? Lol. Yes, they have prepared pretty well.

    No I can confirm that no major crash has been experienced.

    Now this doesnt meant that they syill won’t but for now, the worst is over.

    I believe that the App Store feature is enabled again. I’m going to hold off updating this, due to some scattered reports of App Store failure.

    I have had a few errors when downloading applications, so when i feel that everything is running smoothly enough, I’ll update my article saying we’re in the clear.

    yea i have full function of app store right now….

    too bad loopt is messed up tho

  • Alan Vazquez

    Yeah. I am having troubles still. I guess Apple’s servers got raped afterall. (Excuse my way of putting it)

    My friends are still having some troubles. Dont worry, ill probably expire the warning tomorrow. They should be working on it. It may just be broken li ks and compatability issues.
