While this isn't a full outage it seems to be big enough that it's affecting some users intermittently. Apple first logged the problem at around 14:30 BST and shows the issue as ongoing.

The major services affected include iTunes, the App Store, Apple TV, iBooks, Mac OS X Software Update service and of course Apple Music.
