Apple's system status checker confirms that many of its services are having issues, which were first reported around 9:30 a.m. ET.

"We are investigating and will update the status as more information becomes available," Apple said on its system status checker webpage.

People quickly brought the issue to Twitter, of course.

The outage came about a half an hour before MTV was set to announce nominees for its Video Music Awards during Beats 1, Apple’s new radio station. 

Who’s it going to be??

Apple systems go down on occasion, but they usually don't last long. However, those outages are usually limited to one or two features. This outage also reinforces what has become a common refrain — that Apple’s cloud services are its weak point.
