iTunes is having issues since 11:26 AM EDT. http://t.co/yWqpPuOqLN RT if it's down for you as well #itunesdown — DownDetector (@downdetector) June 2, 2015
Apple services have experienced multiple instances of downtime in recent months, including a prolonged App Store and iTunes outage in early March, and subsequent downtime in late March, followed by a TestFlight outage for developers in May. Apple has historically been rather slow at updating it system status page to reflect any ongoing issues, usually doing so several minutes after issues begin.
Update 9:09 AM Pacific: iCloud services have been restored for some users.

Google had a 43 minute outage back in March.
And a worse one back in February - 2 hours and 40 minutes
They all have outages. Apple's just get reported more.
Unless of course you mean the celeb thing recently where people used rubbishy simple passwords that got guessed which could happen on any system......
