  • iCloud Down For Many Users (Update: Running Again)


    Apple's iCloud service seems to be experiencing some technical difficulties as many users are reporting the service to be not working properly. According to Apple's System Status support page, the service is down for some users. Apple has mentioned the following: "Users may be unable to access iCloud services. Normal service will be restored ASAP" as seen in the picture above.

    It currently hasn't been specified why this issue has risen but rest assured, Apple is working to quickly resolve the matter. I would imagine the issue would be resolved as soon as possible as iCloud not working properly would probably anger and frustrate quite a number of iOS device owners.

    Have any of you tried connecting to iCloud recently? Were you able to or is it not working for you either? Let us know in the comments below!

    Update: The service is officially back up:

      Yeah. I was not able to access iCloud for a few hours (1-3 max). But it's been fixed for me already. I was frustrated quickly, and even made an appointment for express lane help, and they won't let you cancel those. haha Is it just a #FailApple day?

      Yet again Apple proves they don't know how to run software in the cloud.

      How have they done that? EVERY other company that uses a cloud service that needs to update something turns theirs off as well.

      Everything that relies on servers connected to the internet goes down sometimes...Cloud storage, websites, whatever....Just cuz they have a compelling service, nobody can claim (reasonably) 1000% uptime....Just sayin

      No, any company worth their salt will have redundancy in place for outages.

      Agreed, however I have been having nothing but issues with icloud email since the beginning. I randomly get "your password is wrong" messages. My solution was to finally delete my icloud email since it was more annoying than anything.

      Drop box and google must not be worth their salt then. I have witnessed outages with both.

      Siri has never worked in any meaningful way for me on my 4s.

      I'm pretty sure your statement just said EVERY company that uses cloud isn't worth squat. There isn't a single company out there that hasn't had 'cloud' outages. That includes Amazon and Google.
