Apple's online store was very recently hit with some partial outages in countries around the world.
When customers browsed to the company's online stores in the U.S., U.K., and Germany, they found that several images and page elements were missing. 9to5Mac, which reported on the issue earlier Monday, posted an image of an entirely text-based German Apple Store; no images were displayed.
According to 9to5Mac's report, the partial outage was due to a Content Delivery Network error that nixed Apple's many design elements and left only the page's text.
It didn't take take long for the issue to be resolved, though. As of this writing, all of the Apple Stores are functioning properly and looking the way they normally do.
