    Multiple users have emailed MacRumors and posted on Twitter that they are having difficulties sending and receiving iMessages.

    Both iMessage and FaceTime were down earlier this week for several hours, though Apple's Services Status page does not indicate any problems as of 7:30AM Pacific time.

    Update: Apple has updated its system status page indicating issues with both iMessage and FaceTime.

    Update 2: Apple's status page indicates that the issue has been resolved as of 9:07 AM Pacific time, although we are still seeing scattered reports of problems.

    app store down too?

    I think the app store may be down too for downloads. I've been having the problem since late last night on multiple devices and a google search shows i'm not alone.

    iTunes store seems to be down too for downloads. Not sure what the problem is.

    What the heck is the point in the status page existing? It's clearly manually managed, otherwise it'd be showing outages all the time.

    Apple still seems to suck at online services. This is fact, not trollbait for what it's worth.

    Messages works fine on my iPad but I can't even sign in on my Mac. Also can't sign in to either. Amazingly, this is the first time I've been hit by an outage (that I'm aware of).

    POS backend obviously.

    Why would I trust iCloud documents in the cloud again?
    Oh right, I don't.

    Dayum, Apple. Fix your internet operations.
    Google's penetrating your turf - design, whilst you're slacking getting internet operations working.

    Oh and please: take data integrity a bit more serious. HFS+ is a subpar filesystem and an iMac with 32GB RAM should be able to run ZFS or another data integrity checking and fixing filesystem in the 21st century.
    It's not all just nice new candy features that look pretty.

    Not everyone connects to the same server.

    With everything having issues, it may be a cyber attack. In any case, Apple probably wouldn't say if it was.

    My outage seems to be intermittent this morning. Has been occurring for at least the last two hours. Five minutes iMessage works great, next twenty five nothing. App Store has given me a good deal of trouble both on my Mac and iPhone.

    Been having trouble with the iOS App Store since around 0400 EDT, iMessage not working properly (messages occasionally failing, occasionally delivered with several minute delays).

    Sheesh. "Strategy for the next 10 years" indeed.

    It's been a mixed bag for me. Trouble with iMessage all morning for some of my contacts. Others are going through fine. No rhyme or reason to it.

    I've been having issues since around 2AM, it's been up and down. Can't log into iCloud either.

    Would this have anything to do with t-mobile going live with the iPhone?

    Oh I thought it was just me. I uninstalled BiteSMS thinking it may have been that.

    I'm definitely seeing iMessage issues in Metro Atlanta. iMessages either fail to send completely or will show as delivered about four or five minutes after I sent them.

    iCloud Status check

    iMessage not working as expected. More than a minute delay to send. Though this could be a backlog on the server side for something that was supposed to be seamless.
    All other iCloud services seem to be working for me, as far as i can test them without flaming hoops. :cool:

    Note: not in Calli

    Been out since 8PM PST last night. Have been on the phone with Apple for several hours trying to figure it out. My rep is very friendly and is submitting it to the engineers. We exhausted every single troubleshooting step excepting replacing my phone. Its weird because iMessages works on my iMac, MBA and iPad 2, but not my iPhone 5.
