Apple’s website is currently unavailable

Apple’s official website is currently down, and this time it’s not about a new product launch. This follows an outage that affected App Store services earlier this week just after iOS 16 was released to the public.

Apple website is down

At first, Apple’s main web page was still loading, but without any images. However, Apple’s official website now returns a 403 error with a message saying “You do not have permission to access this resource”. The outage affects the company’s web page for the United States and also other countries.

It’s unclear at this point what exactly is going on with Apple’s website. The only part of the website that seems to work normally is the online Apple Store.

Last week, Apple Store servers also encountered major issues right after the start of iPhone 14 pre-orders. Many customers were unable to complete the payment or redemption process in time, which which earned them an increase in delivery estimates once the issue was resolved.

On social media, some users have also noticed that the company’s servers are slower than usual since the release of iOS 16. Not only does the update take hours to download to the device, but the Installing apps from the App Store also takes longer. According to Apple’s system status webpage, no outages have been confirmed by the company so far.
