  • iMessage and FaceTime Go Down Again on Friday


    For the second time this week, iMessage and FaceTime saw outages today before all systems were working normally again by early afternoon.

    This past Tuesday afternoon, we began hearing from readers reporting an outage in their iMessage and FaceTime services. Needless to say, it was deja vu all over again Friday morning as Apple's system status page confirmed the repeat outage.

    Similar to Tuesday's experience, we don't yet know what caused this issue, but it seems to be a persistent matter. Like before, only iMessage and FaceTime were impacted by the brief outage this morning. The App Store and other services continued to functional optimally during this period.

    Although we don't yet know what's triggering the intermittent outages, Apple is consistently able to repair whatever is causing the disturbance within an hour or two.

      Such BS I almost updated my phone because of this. Thought it was caused from the jailbreak. I'm even experiencing texts not going through or delaying up to 10 minutes before sending..

      Pictures aren't sending for me and iMessage tends to stop working still! The system status page says everything is a-ok. Happening for anyone else too?

      iMessage service has been terrible for me this week in my jailbroke 5 and my stock 4s. Sure hope they get this all fixed soon.

      maybe the outages are due to apple testing upcoming features?

      Sometimes if you just toggle "airplane mode" off and back on it will resend the text that isn't going through. May be easier and faster than a respring/reboot sometimes

      who knows? anyones guess is technically accurate. I bet its the data centers that handle it.
      But i ill say i read somewhere on another site that it could be from the recent apple lawsuits with VPN and other stuff.

      I would've guessed data centers as well if it only happened on friday because of t-mobile launch of the 5, but otherwise what big launches has there been to promote a large set of new iPhones at once?
