Rumor: Apple Pushing OS X Lion to App Store Servers
If you are here you’ve probably noticed that the iTunes and Mac App Store are both running extremely slow. I myself have attempted to download a few apps for my iPad and my Mac and have been stuck waiting for quite some time. After looking around on the Apple developer forums most of us are convinced this slowness is due to Apple pushing Mac OS X Lion to the App Store servers.
If you were/are wanting to download anything from the App Store we suggest you wait a few hours until things go back to normal. We will keep you posted on any more developing news as we receive it.
Update: The Mac App Store is still very slow to download applications, I just bought an app that is less than 3MB in size and it took approximately 2-3 minutes to complete the purchase and download. Normally, this would take only a few seconds.
