This week there was a bit of chatter on the fact that a “small number of users” as Apple put it were affected by an issue in the iTunes app store – today Apple has a fix. This issue included several apps crashing intermittently after they’d been updated, but today’s update straight from Apple’s iTunes representatives notes that all is well once more and that every app that’s been crashing should simply be able to be updated or re-downloaded from iTunes for a fully operational version, no worries included.
This update comes from an Apple spokesperson speaking with Rosa Golijan at msNBC and includes an extremely simplified statement on the situation with not a whole lot of unnecessary meat involved. Have a peek at the statement here:
“We had a temporary issue that began yesterday with a server that generated DRM code for some apps being downloaded. It affected a small number of users. The issue has been rectified and we don’t expect it to occur again. Users who experienced an issue launching an app caused by this server bug can delete the affected app and re-download it.” – Apple
A system on the fritz that’s normally charged with making sure you’ve got the key to opening all of your apps. Now that system is fixed and all is well in the world of iOS apps. Were you affected? Are you able to re-download the apps in question with great success? Let us know!
