Several reports are coming in that Apple’s iCloud services have been experiencing an outage in Australia in addition to a few reports from New Zealand. Most appear unable to access any iCloud services such as Calendars and Mail, and others report Apple’s iMessage service is also down. The problems appear to have started late last night eastern time and continued into the morning today.

Apple is yet to update its System Status page to reflect the outages, but users continue to report problems. A long list of tweets from users in both Australia and New Zealand note the system was still down as of this morning.

    “iCloud crashing” – People who don’t actually know what certain terms mean shouldn’t be allowed to use the term.

    The good news is the problem is being cause by Telstra (Optus was not affected), I was talking to them through their Live Chat service for an hour and a half last night. In that time they lodged a report and their Technician department started investigating the issue which first started to occur at approx 6pm where I am located. After I had finished talking to them (11:08pm) I was able to access all of the affected Apple ID and iCloud services.
