Multiple online store services at Apple went down globally for over 9 hours in what Apple reported was an internal technical error. The App Store, iBooks Store, iTunes store and the Mac App Store were down starting at about 8pm Malaysian time (5am ET). Apple said the cause was an internal DNS (Domain Name System) error at Apple. The systems were back online at about 4am Malaysian time (1pm ET) but several sources say the access was limited as of 1.30pm ET. The global outage came two days after Apple unveiled the latest Macbook and announced a release date on the much awaited Apple Watch.
