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.
