    The strange thing is, I could update Find My iPhone and Remote in iTunes but the Updates aren’t shown on my iPhone.

    Remote and Find My iPhone have updated, but Podcasts and Logic Remote have disappeared from the Japanese App Store.

    App Store is getting hammered. Hardly even loads at the moment.
