[Update: Apple’s system status board has been updated to acknowledge the blip and note the issue is over.]

If you’re having issues getting started with Apple Music this morning, you’re not alone. The iOS app started the day by asking subscribers to sign up and join Apple Music (a force quit fixed for me but the problem persists) and iTunes on the Mac is also serving up error messages for a great number of users.

At the time of writing, Apple’s system status page hasn’t been updated to reflect any issues, but that usually happens a bit after the problem is recognized if at all. We’ll keep an eye on the status and update accordingly, but rest assured that if you’re a subscriber being asked to join again that it’s not just you and there’s a widespread hiccup in progress.
