Update: Apple’s iCloud status page said all services were back online as of 11:32 a.m. PST.
As noted by several 9to5mac readers and users on Twitter, iCloud users have experienced varying outages since early yesterday. As of 11:17 a.m. PST today, Apple’s iCloud support system status page confirmed: “Users may be unable to use iCloud Documents, Photo Stream or Backup & Restore. Users may also be unable to send or download attachments in iMessage. Normal service will be restored ASAP.” We can see from Apple’s updated “Recent” status updates that users have experienced a number of issues with iCloud in recent days. The issues range from not being able to access iCloud mail to incoming messages being “slow or unavailable.”
Many users still cannot get access to email and synced content. On Twitter, some reported iCloud being down since yesterday or longer.
