Apple's iPhone activation process experienced hiccups Thursday, with users reportedly unable to activate their new phones.
The check-in process phones home to Apple before users are able to use the device, leaving new buyers out of luck. The security measure has been a source of frustration during previous product launches, whenwith new owners.
Apple declined comment on the apparent downtime, which was reported earlier Thursday by MacRumors.
The issues came as Apple's developer site and most of its connected services near a full week of unavailability. Apple temporarily closed the site down last Thursday following what it says was. This Thursday's connectivity issues are believed to be unrelated.
Update at 11:15 a.m. PT: The issue has now been fixed.
