A number of iCloud services are currently experiencing downtime in the United States, Canada and other countries, an issue that became widespread within the past hour or so. A significant number of users have tipped MacRumors and posted on Twitter and other social media platforms about being unable to sign into iCloud or access related services such as Mail and Find My iPhone.

iTunes has also been experiencing an outage since at least 8:30 AM Pacific, although Apple has yet to update its system status page to reflect any ongoing issues with either iCloud or iTunes. MacRumors will continue to track Apple's system status page and the affected services and providing the latest status updates about the outage as new information becomes available.

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.

smh there seems to be a problem with their internet services every other week
If it only happens once every 2 weeks, that's pretty good. Probably one of the better cloud service out there.

Google had a 43 minute outage back in March.

And a worse one back in February - 2 hours and 40 minutes

Oh snap. I really hope this is just a small outage and not another instance where iCloud got hacked.
Did iCloud get hacked? Did I miss that?

Unless of course you mean the celeb thing recently where people used rubbishy simple passwords that got guessed which could happen on any system......

Is there any point to apples system status page? It clearly doesn't actually check the services automatically to update itself and always appears to be the last to know when there is a system outage (or ignores the fact).
