Brief outage hits iCloud, iTunes, App Stores, iBookstore

Downtime affects major services

Several Apple online services encountered outages earlier today, according to the company's system status page. Between 11:23AM and 1:54PM Eastern, people may have been "unable to make purchases from the App Store, iTunes Store, Mac App Store, or iBookstore," the page states. "Users may also have been unable to download previously-purchased content, use iTunes Match, or successfully restore Apps and Music from an iCloud backup."

Apple has become increasingly dependent on its online services since late 2011, when it launched iCloud and began promoting the idea of a "post-PC" world in which an iPad or an iPhone is all a person needs. The company is still dealing with periodic outages however, even if most aren't severe.
