MacDailyNews Note: iOS 4 is now available via iTunes as of 1pm EDT.
Right now, you can still get through to display pages, but the performance is definitely suboptimal, to use some NASA-speak.
It’s like MacDailyNews during a Steve Jobs’ keynote (except we don’t have $40+ billion in the bank to pay for bandwidth during high-capacity events).
We’ve been trying without success to download the Pandora update for the past 15 minutes.
Millions of clicks per second on the “Check for Update” button can’t be good for optimal iTunes Store performance.
To everyone who’s looking forward to upgrading to iOS 4 today, we wish you the best of luck!
[UPDATE: 2:15pm EDT: iTunes Store seems to be more responsive now. We have successfully downloaded a few apps and upgraded an old iPhone 3G to iOS 4. (Yes, we got hit with a traffic spike around 1pm EDT, too.)]
