DRM server to blame for corrupted iOS and Mac apps

Apple has fixed a glitch that caused some apps downloaded from the iOS App Store and Mac App Store to refuse to work.

Apple confirms that the problem was traced down to a fault with “a server that generated DRM code for some apps being downloaded”.

The DRM code normally prevents apps being run on unauthorized devices, but in this case it seems the glitch prevented the app from working on legitimate devices.

According to Apple, “The issue has been rectified and we don’t expect it to occur again.”

All affected apps will have to be deleted and re-downloaded from the appropriate App Store. This is an annoyance because it will mean losing all settings and data inputted into the app but it will fix the problem.
