Apple Inc. restored services to iTunes and App stores Wednesday after an unusually extensive outage that lasted more than 11 hours.

The iTunes, App and Mac App stores were available for users, according to a message on the iPhone maker’s system-status Web page at 4:45 p.m. in New York. Service for the iBooks Store also had also been interrupted, while users of iCloud Mail and other Web tools couldn’t gain access for four hours, according to the timeline.
