Apple's iTunes and App stores are unavailable for all users

Apple's iTunes and app stores are suffering outages for all users on Wednesday.

A system status notification page showed the iTunes store, iBooks Store Mac App store and App store services were offline as of 11 a.m. E.T. The problems appear to have begun early Wednesday morning.

The cause of the problems is unclear. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

They come after Apple announced Monday new details about its Apple Watch and MacBook products.
