Apple services resume after hours of outage

Some Apple services including App Store resumed services after more than two hours outage, Apple Inc said Thursday.

According to a Reuters report, the company said some other services related to iCloud and the iPhone maker’s Photos application continued to remain unavailable for some users.

The issues appear to have started just before 4 p.m. U.S. Eastern Daylight Time (2000 GMT), according to a timeline provided on Apple’s U.S. support page. The App Store functionality was restored at about 6:30 p.m. EDT.

Apple was not available to provide additional information or comment on the outage, outside regular business hours.

“We are investigating and will update the status as more information becomes available,” the company said on the website.
