Quite a few iPad and iPhone users have been reporting this morning that they have been unable to sign in to the iPad’s YouTube application to view their subscriptions and favorited videos. Users who attempt a login are shown a message that reads, “YouTube Not Available“.
A message on the Apple Support forums reads,
“When I try to log in to the YouTube app on my iPad I get a message telling me the YouTube app is unavailable and then logs back out. I have the correct user and pass so I’m not sure why it’s doing it. All other apps are ok and I am connected to the Internet.”
Now, it is not clear if this is a universal problem. I can however confirm that I am able to replicate the same issue on my iPhone 3G (yes, I love OLD phones) that runs on iOS 3.X.
Are you facing the same issue on your iPhone or iPad? Write down in the comments below.
Update : The issue appears to be resolved. No more login problems. Strange though that YouTube has not acknowledged it either on their blog nor on Twitter.
