The App Store and Mac App Store are currently experiencing an outage, according to Apple's System Status page. Apple says that App Store services could be slow or unavailable for some users, with the problem starting at 10:05 a.m. Pacific Time.

Other services like iCloud Drive, iCloud Mail, and iMessage are also listed as experiencing issues, with some users unable to access Apple's services.

Curiously, though Apple is reporting several outages, there are few complaints on Twitter and other social networks about problems with the App Store, iMessage, and Mail.

Update: According to Apple's System Status page, all of the outages have now been addressed and services should be up and running.

Interesting I was signed out of iCloud on my phone about 20mins ago and then it wouldn't let me log back in until I tried three times.

Hope that this is something mundane like an upgrade gone bad. Not a security breach or denial or service attack.

I don't normally like to comment on editorial matters, but why is this story here? It became irrelevant within minutes, and it could have been expected to become irrelevant within minutes. And even when it was technically relevant it wasn't the least bit interesting.

10 minutes ago all I was getting was the spinning wheel. I am glad the story is here. Otherwise, I wouldn't have known there was a problem.

Of all the things to complain about on the forum, you pick something very benign that has no affect on you. There was no need to do that.

It’s good to have these stories on the record, it lets you know it was an issue on Apple’s end and not the user.

Yea since yesterday, as much as we like Apple, we are moving away from iCloud, it's flaky at best sadly.

Tehcinal status reports shouldn't be in the main "rumors" feed. And really, why is a third party rumors forum where you woulds look for reports on technical issues, anyway? Apple should have a status page for their own services.

Like the other guy who said he's glad to see this story, why are you relying on third party rumors site to keep you informed on Apple's daily services status? When your internet service is down, do you go to "Xfinity Rumors" to get a status report?

I was having problems with Apple Music earlier, none of the playlists like Get up! were showing the song list and the play button didn’t work.
However asking Siri to play the playlist did work and the music app showed the current song playing but not the up next songs, even though each song played correctly.

Because this is an active forum where people with Apple services talk about Apple services. It’s a good place to go to see if anyone else is having the same issues.

And then aside from all that, people that don’t like these types of stories can just ignore them. Simple.
