Update: Despite Apple’s system status page still showing yellow for “Problem”, it looks like Apple TV+ will be back online for many users.
Apple TV+ is experiencing widespread downtime tonight. The service appears to be down across the board for iOS and Mac devices. When trying to open the Apple TV app, it might present a longer loading icon than usual and go directly to your Library instead of the service.
9to5Mac staff members can confirm that this issue is also affecting the tv+ tab on Apple TV devices, showing the error message “Content not available”.
The tweets are starting to pour in from affected users, with some claiming that the service has been down since 7:52pm EST.
Apple’s System Status web page has the Apple TV+ and Apple TV+ channels marked yellow with an issue. Interestingly, so is the iTunes Store. The company has yet to acknowledge any issues. At this time, it is unclear how long the services will be down. You can follow along System Status web page here.
Update: iTunes Store status is now green and no longer listed as a “Problem”.
