Apple And Users Reporting iCloud Outages, Are You Affected? [Updated]

Apple And Users Reporting iCloud Outages, Are You Affected? [Updated]

For the past hour or so it appears that iCloud has been undergoing widespread outages, with many users unable to log into their email accounts and iCloud.com.

Apple has acknowledged the problem, and is working to restore iCloud to its full glory once again.

The iCloud system status webpage gives up to date information on Apple’s cloud service. Here’s the most recent message:

Apple And Users Reporting iCloud Outages, Are You Affected? [Updated]

While iCloud is down, you may not be able to use your email address, Photo Stream, or other iCloud services. In the Mail app, you’ll probably get prompts to re-enter your password. Just wait a little bit and everything should be back to normal.

We will update this page when there’s word that iCloud has been fully restored. In the meantime, is iCloud down for you?

Update: As of 15:29 PST, iCloud is back online.

    I was – but am back now…

  • David Penick

    iCloud Mail appears to be back up. Quite a few users in the forums are saying that they’re getting mail again. 

  • Rmcshopper

    still out. sort of screwy too – it erases all of your contact and calendars when the service has an outage.  so much for cloud computing … back to the old standby since no one seems to be able to handle this except for Google.

  • J Chait

    yes, me too

  • Dennis Dorner Jr.

  • Doug

  • Vanillacide

    I am Sparticus. Yep, iCloud out for me.

    I got a message saying my iCloud email password was incorrect a few hours ago. It seems to be okay now.

  • javierkio

    I have the error on mail.app

  • Tyler

    Yes same probs but back up now.

  • CalicoAvenger

    No iCloud problem here (Brooklyn, NY)  at this time that I can see.  Calendar events I created on iPhone earlier today showed up on iMac right away and iPad2 shortly (after I powered it up).  

  • James Jimmy Williams

    It was down for me but everything is working again now!

  • prollings

    Mail has been down all afternoon and still down.

    Out for me most of the afternoon on west coast. Siri out too. Seems that every day Siri is out for at least an hour or so. What is up with that?

    Apple will fix it soon….

  • Howie Isaacks

    I love the services that iCloud offers, but this is getting ridiculous!  Apple is a huge company with billions of dollars in resources to pour into iCloud, yet it seems to fail almost daily!  Luckily, I don’t use it for email, but I do use it to keep my notes, contacts, and bookmarks synched with my iPhone and my other Mac.  The company that I used to provide my personal email is far more reliable despite being a miniscule company compared to Apple.  Often, I just disable iCloud in Mail until the problem goes away.  I get sick of the stupid user name/password errors that pop up every few minutes.

  • Svikas

    Yes!!!
    I am a .mac user, me user and user but
    I was never had a problem, but past few days it’s a pain in sss.

    I hope apple get on top of it soon.

  • Daibidh

    Well, so much for Apple going “Thermalnuclear.” To the pessimists who called this one, I tip my hat.

  • iCarlie

    While they are at it, will they please fix iWork in the cloud so that I can manage PDF, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, files?  Come on- Dropbox can do it but iWork in iCloud can’t?
