Apple confirms service disruption

Update: 12:30PM ET – Apple’s status website also saying the issues are resolved

For the second time this week, Apple has confirmed that iMessage and FaceTime are experiencing hiccups, albeit nearly three hours after users first started reporting issues.

Any regular user of the service can speak for how regular of an occurrence this is, and Apple is consistently slow to confirm any service disruption.

Notably, when Apple does admit any downtime, it typically downplays the issue while our own experience and that of the good people on Twitter reflects otherwise.
