It seems that some of Apple’s web-based services are seeing some unexpected outages right now. Some users are noting iCloud being down, others are having difficulty sending and receiving messages via the iMessage service, some are having trouble accessing the iTunes Store, and it appears that Apple’s Mac and iOS developer portals are not loading. Apple notes on its iCloud Status website that some services are down. We will update when we hear or see more on this issue. Hopefully everything gets fixed up quickly.
Update: Apple now says “normal service will be restored ASAP.”
Update 2: iCloud services are now back up, according to Apple.
