According to a number of readers and our own observations, it seems iCloud is in the midst of a somewhat widespread service outage that has been going on since roughly 4PM Eastern Time. Users are unable to access mail and other services either via standalone applications on the Mac or iOS, or via the iCloud website.

Apple's iCloud service status website doesn't indicate any issues, which may suggest the outage is not serious enough to warrant a notice or more likely that Apple simply hasn't updated the page yet.

Update: Apple has now added a notice to the system status page acknowledging the outage.





Update 2: Service seems to be restored.

My entire business is having issues, and all my friends on mac are having issues. I don't think this is minor...every mac owner I know is having issues. The sooner Apple addresses this the better.

Really annoyed - I needed to access my email after just getting in from work as well.

For a minute I thought I was hacked and I hope this is just a server drop.

Has the cleaner pulled the plug?

im sick of these outages and problems. I do understand its a new service and all. But come on apple, your a huge company. I'm sure there is someone smart enough to realize there isn't enough servers or whatever. I had outages with MobileMe, but not this many in a short amount of time. I don't really wanna switch back to google....

Got the same problem as everyone else now...:confused:

Working for me

Obviously this issue isn’t effecting all users. I checked my account at ~4 and it worked and now at 4:50 it is still working perfectly. I guess Apple has me under the “Winners” list and doesn’t want me to be unhappy.

Perhaps it is time to view Icloud as a useful backup service and not one on which you will use in a production type environment. Gmail is so much more reliable, those that have migrated to .me need to rethink.

I use it to keep my iphone, ipad and Macbook pro synced for contacts and calender events only. That works really well and outages such as this are but a minor inconvenience.

And they STILL haven't fixed the PUSH Mail to iPhone. Would never have moved over from MobileMe to iCloud, at least not until June, had I known this issue would persist. And there's no way to go back to MobileMe.
Come on Apple!

I couldn't buy a book from iBooks like 10 minutes ago, so the iTunes Store may be effected too.
