Apple’s website appears to be struggling to load amid the iPhone 12 release date.
The new handsets have gone on sale across the world at 5am local pacific time, or 1pm in the UK.
But the website seemed to struggle to keep up with demand as users found pages refusing to load or taking much longer than usual to do so.
Tracking website Down Detector saw a spike in problems as the time of release arrived.
Apple rarely discussed either supply or demand of its new products publicly, meaning it will be hard to know for sure whether the iPhone 12 is seeing stronger than usual interest, at least until the company reports its earnings.
