Tuesday’s outage also affected Mac App Store, users of Apple Card, Apple Books, iCloud Web Apps and Weather. The outage on Monday affected 11 of Apple’s services, including Arcade and Maps.
It was not immediately clear what caused the outages on both days, but Bloomberg News reported on Monday that Apple told staff that the outage stemmed from domain name system, or DNS – an address book of the internet which enables computers to match website addresses with the correct server.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday’s outage.
