At 01:05 GMT Apple iPhone users started reporting problems when accessing Google either via the Google homepage or built in search bar.
Sure enough when i checked my iPhone had the same problem. Turning to Twitter users were reporting a similar problem. @joshsecrest said “why do I get a 404 error on my iPhone?”. Another said “anyone else notices google is down on their iPhone?”
It seems that both the iPad and iPod touch are not affected by the problem but all models of the iPhone are.
A 404 error occurs when a page is missing, basically this means that someone at Google towers has either deleted or replaced something they shouldn’t have or the server can not find that file at the time.
We expect this is a temporary glitch and is certainly not something users can fix themselves. So hold tight and we will bring you an update when we have one.
Have you experienced a 404 error on your iPhone when using Google? We would love to know which country you are in if you are Fill your time by leaving a comment below.
Update: it seems the problem is not just iOS related, Android users are also experiencing problems.
