According to Apple’s system status webpage, several of its iCloud services are experiencing issues this evening. The support page shows that Documents in the Cloud, iCloud Backup, iCloud Drive, iMessage, iWork for iCloud, Mail Drop, and Photos are all experiencing intermittent service issues. The outages have ben going on since 8AM PT/11AM ET, if not longer since Apple is usually late to update its system status graph.

Last night, Beats 1 experienced a widespread outage for upwards of 30 minutes. iMessage also experienced a significant outage a little more than a week ago, although Apple never offically acknowledged the issues that plagued many users for several hours.

We’ll keep this post updated with the status of iCloud services throughout the afternoon.

Users may notice slower than normal performance when using iCloud Drive, My Photo Stream, iWork for iCloud, Backup & Restore, iPhoto Journals, iMessage attachments, Mail Drop, or iMovie Theater.

    Contrary to the status page over here in The Netherlands, everything works. And I tried out all services that are tagged yellow.

    Yesterday’s hiccup I can understand; Apple is so big now every release suffers from glitches. Which is actually understandable.

    Xbox live is down too.

  3. I have been increasingly frustrated with email on my iPhone 6. Often, I just don’t get my push emails, especially iCloud. I hadn’t gotten any emails on my phone today and then I logged in to and there were 7 new emails! That is unacceptable!

    Email is completely down on all of my and my families iCloud accounts, all over the US and Canada, since 11am Eastern US time today.
