Several Apple services, including iTunes and the App Store, suffered outages Wednesday morning.

Some users reported seeing connection errors throughout the early morning when attempting to either access apps or download new data through them. Bloomberg originally reported the outages, and said the issues were found in U.S., Switzerland, Spain, and the U.K.

Although Apple’s system status page originally showed through 9 a.m. ET that all of its services were working, the tech giant kept updating that list throughout the morning with more outages—first iCloud, and then iTunes, and then others including the Mac App Store.

As of 10:30 a.m. ET, the page showed that the multiple services were “unavailable for all users,” and the problem had persisted since before 5 a.m.

“Customers may be unable to make purchases from the App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or Mac App Store,” the status update said.

That same page indicated that there had been a problem until just before 9 a.m. ET with iCloud sign ins and iCloud mail. Some users, however, reported still having issues with that service as late as 10:15 a.m.

The latest activity section of Apple’s support forums shows many recent complaints about the issue.

Apple did not immediately return request for comment.

The company’s stock fell about 1.5 percent in the first hour of Wednesday trading.
