Hey Apple users:
If you’re now experiencing hangs introducing apps on the Mac, I figured out the problem using Little Snitch.

Apple’s status website keeps in mind that the company had resolved a concern earlier today that may have prevented users from downloading macOS software application updates, although it hasn’t been confirmed that the Huge Sur upgrade was the cause of the failure. The company likewise reported concerns with iMessage and full-blown failures with Maps routing and navigation in addition to its traffic tracking, which may have been related to the OSCP failure, too.
Mac and iOS designer Panic reports substantiates the reports, noting that the downed service had disabled Apple’s Gatekeeper technology, which checks validity of apps when you try to launch them. Panic likewise reports that the concern appears to be solved, but it’s unclear if things have completely cleared up for everybody yet.
Looks like, when apps are released, Gatekeeper is unable to inspect their validity over the web, due to overloaded Apple servers. So, uh, let’s all hang in there! You got this, Apple devops!
