We have tried pinging Apple website using our server and the website returned the above results. If is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Apple - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

It is 6:25 ET, I went into the Apple Store near me at 4:30 and they told me it had been down THEN for 1hr30mins. Quite a waiting game.

Addie Alvarez · 18 September 2013 - 14:12

So, as of 4:11 pm CT, Apple's servers are still backed up. I had called my carrier, and they told me that it'll be a while before new or restored iPhones can be reactivated, since the iOS 7 update was released today and their servers are currently busy with that.

So, it looks like we'll just have to play the waiting game until we can activate our Apple devices!

Amanda Dawson · 18 September 2013 - 13:58

additional information
Gateway Timeout Server error - server is unreachable at this moment. Please retry the request or contact your adminstrator.

This seems to be on our Links in Syd and Melb our external ADSL connection does not have this problem.

Jay Atee · 23 June 2013 - 17:22

You need to check your D-Link router configuration to see if the "enabled advanced DNS services" is checked. Uncheck this option and save the new settings to your router.
DNS needs to direct to your ISP DNS instead of D-Link DNS (which is not working for at the moment).

Mickey Dominga · 23 June 2013 - 16:34

I don't know what's happening but it has been driving me crazy! My wifi connection immediately disconnects and I get redirected to the dlink search thingy. Hopefully apple gets on fixing this soon... I'm attached by the hip to my iphone, I don't think i can wait hours on end about this.

Maddie Raynaud · 23 June 2013 - 15:08

it will not connect to my home internet/wifi but if i go somewhere else, it does. It just directs me to this "dlink" search thing. apple is not working at my house either.

Alexander Ostrowski · 23 June 2013 - 15:04

Same Problem. Cant reach from home (other people from my town can). Reaching by mobile Internet works fine. Try to connect with my Dlink and after 5 Seconds disconnecting and the stuff. Didn´t knew my Iphone connects to apple server every time i connect to the internet :)

Brett Nafziger · 23 June 2013 - 14:56

My iPhone won't connect at all! I tried it on another network (away from my home one which was at a different location) and it worked fine! Came back home and it redirects me to a "Login" page of DLink search options. I cannot connect to the internet at all on my iPhone??? Apple websites also do not work on any of my home computers?

Ashley Pardy · 23 June 2013 - 14:29

I get that stupid dlink thing too !

Paul Maas · 23 June 2013 - 14:15

Elly Comley · 18 March 2013 - 03:28

The Apple server isn't connecting. I have tried everything! :(

Amy J Higgins · 15 March 2013 - 20:25

This has happened to me three times in the last month. Apple is ridiculous. And worse, they don't admit to it, but instead blame my devices. Outrageous.

Kathe Stein · 6 March 2013 - 03:30

My email app on my droid stopped working about 4 days ago. I thought it was something I did (although I couldn't think of what it was). First it was allegedly my password (they said it was wasn't). Then it wouldn't connect to the server at all. It's 3 days later and still nothing. i can get gmail and yahoo but not Apple. Luckily for some reason I CAN get my Apple email using my laptop. Have there been any notifications about this? I only found out about it from the guy at Verizon. Maybe it's a sign that I shouldn't be getting email on my phone :-)

Gay Choate Keilty · 21 February 2013 - 13:03

Trying to set up a new mini. Very dissatisfied with Apple's inability to keep their server(s) on-line.

Susie DeStasio · 22 November 2012 - 21:22

Apple web store is not accessible, stating they "will be back" that they're busy updating... at midnight on one of the busiest shopping days of the year? Unlikely.
