Apple’s iCloud portfolio of various streaming and syncing services has existed for two years. And in those two years, Apple still hasn’t been able to keep it from regularly fucking up. It happened again today!
9to5Mac noticed the outage, which began at around 9am this morning and just ended about an hour ago — and hit iCloud in its entirety. That’s a big outage, which Apple says affected 11 per cent of iCloud’s users: over 25 million people. That’s 25 million people whose email, backup, and music wasn’t working. The mainframe cerebrovascular accident has been upgraded as of now, with only three services on alert: Photo Stream, Documents in The Cloud, and “Backup.” That last one is a biggie.
