Many Apple services, including the App Store, Apple Arcade, Music, iMessage and Maps experienced outages on Monday. Service was restored by about 3:45 p.m. ET.

The outage impacted some apps and people differently. In some cases, an app like the App Store would load but would hang or wouldn’t let you download an app. In other cases, the app won’t load altogether. It’s not clear what caused the outage and an Apple spokesperson declined to comment.

Bloomberg said the outage impacted Apple’s internal services for corporate and retail employees, too, and had “hindered product repairs, swaps and item pickups.”
