If you can check lyrics for songs on Apple Music, The Mamas & The Papas would sing, “Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day.” Apple Music is having some issues right now. Not only that, but the App Store is down this Monday, as 9to5Mac revealed earlier today that privacy labels in apps have disappeared.
You’re not alone if Apple Music and the App Store aren’t operating as they should right now. According to Apple’s status page, both services are experiencing difficulties that are affecting all customers.
The issues with Apple Music and the App Store come after an issue with Apple Pay on Sunday. Interac cardholders were unable to make purchases with Apple Pay for slightly over 40 minutes. They couldn’t add, suspend, or remove a card either.
Apple’s Twitter support page has also recognized the problems, stating that the company is working to restore services.
According to Apple’s System Status website, the company’s products are now experiencing two difficulties. Two of them have been confirmed by 9to5Mac: the app crashing and/or failing to display privacy labels for apps, while the other is a problem with Apple Music.
Apple Music is missing lyric information, Dolby Atmos, and lossless audio from tracks where those features should be there, according to Reddit users, and some are unable to play music even if it has been downloaded to their local storage for offline listening. Some users reported that logging in and out fixed the lost lossless audio features but not the lyrics.
Since 8:41 a.m. PDT, Apple has recognized the problems, people experienced unreliable experiences with Apple Music and the App Store since far earlier.
Apple appears to be working on a fix for the App Store, as you can read more about it here.
Last month, Apple experienced a major outage that affected up to 26 services.
