No issues for me.
Everything still working perfectly.

That’s a relief. I was worried.

It's Jony's fault. He took the "i" in iCloud with him on his way out and no one noticed.

"The company says only that 'some' users are affected, but social media reports suggest the outage is fairly widespread."

To be fair, that's about the worst metric one can possibly use. Social media always makes things look like a huge issue, because it's easy to find a couple hundred people who complain about something on Twitter and then do a write up and proclaim it a movement.

It’s been a bad week for the internet. Lots of “glitches” for the bigger entities from Facebook to Google to Apple.

Yesterday, it was Facebook & Instagram. Now it's Apple. Internet's grounds are shaking, probably due to a massive pirate/terrorist attack.

The world is changing. Learn how to grow seeds, do your own fire, hide, make a shelter. YouTube won't be there when you'll need it. Don't trust anyone.

There was a solar eclipse in the South Pacific on Tuesday. The iSun and iMoon messed up the iCloud.

If only Apple had access to AI/machine learning, it would have predicted these problems and fixed them before it happened. Because AI/machine learning is that good.

(Edit: Just for the record, this was meant as a joke.)

Wife: “Find My Friends isn’t working.”
Me: “Huh.”
Wife: *Hands me her iPhone
Me: *Checks Settings for a couple of minutes, doesn’t find anything amiss. Checks her Find My Friends App. It’s working. Hands iPhone back to wife. “It’s working now.”
Wife: Takes iPhone and says, “How’d you do that?”
Me: *Remains quiet to enforce false impression of my tech expertise.
