Apple hit by 3-hour outage

July 21 (Reuters): Apple Inc said App Store, Apple Music, iTunes Store and some other services are back online, after a more than three-hour outage.

The company did not provide details but said only some users were affected today.

The last time that Apple services were affected this long was in March, when iTunes and the App Store came back online after a mammoth 12-hour outage.

In checks by Reuters on several Apple sites in Asia, Europe and North and South America all issues with the services appeared resolved.

The problems started just before Apple's radio station Beats 1 was supposed to reveal the nominations for MTV's 2015 Video Music Awards. MTV announced on Monday that the nominations would be aired exclusively on the station.
