First it was Google, then Microsoft, now Apple is having trouble with its online services.
The impact is less widespread than last week’s Google outage or Tuesday’s Microsoft outage as Apple’s online services aren’t widely used by businesses, but the outage looks to be impacting on customer’s iCloud storage, email and backup services, the App Store, as well as its entertainment services such as Apple Music, Books and TV+.
Reports began circulating of an outage at around 10.30am this morning.
“iCloud not working. Getting an error connecting to system when trying to login,” one customer wrote on complaint aggregator DownDetector.
“Authentication is sent to my phone but no screen comes up on laptop to enter it. Only the error.”
“Same here on all my devices. I’m in Melbourne and seems to be down here at the moment,” wrote another.
According to Apple Support’s Status website, “some users were affected” by an issue yesterday morning that meant they “may have been unable to sign in or create accounts”, but the tech giant believes those issues had been fixed.
