Following its October 25th outage, Apple’s iMessage service is down for many users this afternoon. Our readers and several people on Twitter are expressing their annoyance over the problem. These iMessage outages seem to be happening on a weekly basis, spanning for a few hours.

Additionally, readers are reporting that Game Center, iTunes Match, FaceTime, iTunes Store, and App Store are down as well. Apple’s iCloud system status page confirmed the news that some users are being affected, but if you take a look down south at our comment section, it’s definitely more than just a few.

Update 4:01PM: Apple says all systems are back online. (however that may not be the case for many users)
