It’s Not Just You: iMessage And FaceTime Have Been Down For An Hour




Having a hard time sending iMessages to friends recently? You’re probably one of those that are affected by the current iMessage and FaceTime outage.

Word of the outage quickly spread across Twitter this afternoon that users are experiencing outages with iMessage. A FaceTime outage quickly followed and Apple just updated its support page to acknowledge the service outage.

We’ll let you know once things are back on.

Update: Looks like everything is back up and running.

    iMessage went down for me in the UK but FaceTime stayed online

    iMessage went down for me in Italy, and since it has come back up, I can only use my email addresses – not phone number – to send/receive. I apologize if this is not the correct place for this question, but if anyone can offer a fix I’d appreciate it. I have tried everything I could find in various forums.
