If you’re having problems accessing the iCloud this morning, it’s not just you: Apple’s official Systems Status page indicates that multiple iCloud users are having problems accessing Apple’s services.

As of writing, affected services include Documents In The Cloud, Photo Stream, iPhoto Journals, Backup & Restore, and iMessage users, who Apple says are affected only as much as they may not be able to send or download attachments sent to them by iMessage.

According to Apple, the issue isn’t widespread. In fact, less than 1% of all users are supposedly affected. However, it is a long-lasting issue, with services experiencing issues for the last seven hours. Considering we’ve previously seen Apple Service outages that have affected as many as one out of five people were having issues.
