A variety of Apple’s cloud providers are at present coping with disruptions and partial outages, in line with the company’s system dashboard. Images, iCloud Drive, iCloud Mail, Notes, Contacts, Discover My, and iCloud Backups are a couple of of the providers which were hit by the issues, which Apple’s website mirrored as of 1:13PM ET (10:13AM PT) with a message acknowledging that “customers could also be unable to make use of this service.”
The problems don’t appear to be common or notably widespread, as iCloud syncing continues to work usually for a number of editorial staff at The Verge. My very own iCloud Drive stays accessible in the mean time, however I can see how that is irritating for these coping with the downtime.
Apple Music, the App Retailer, Mac App Retailer, Apple Books, and iTunes handled “gradual or unavailable” outages earlier on Wednesday, however these have since been resolved. Hopefully it gained’t be for much longer earlier than the remainder of these partial outages are totally ironed out. This text can be up to date as soon as that occurs.
