Apple ID on iPhoneSource: Joseph Keller/iMore

What you need to know

  • It isn't just you, multiple Apple services are misbehaving today.
  • Find My, multiple iCloud services, and Photos are all impacted.

No, it isn't just you. Multiple iCloud services including iCloud Mail, iCloud Drive, iCloud Calendar, and more are impacted by another outage. iCloud Photo Library is another important one that's experiencing "intermittent issues."

This isn't the first time in recent weeks that Apple's services have struggled under the load and it's unlikely to be the last, but the number of services that are having issues simultaneously will no doubt be a concern for those who are all-in on Apple's offerings. At the time of writing, Apple's system status page lists the following as experiencing intermittent issues.

  • Find My.
  • iCloud bookamerks & Tabs.
  • iCloud Calendar.
  • iCloud Contacts.
  • iCloud Drive.
  • iCloud Keychain.
  • iCloud Mail.
  • Photos — otherwise known as iCloud Photo Library.

The good news is that Apple is aware of the issue and continues to work on getting everything ironed out. The bad news is there's no telling how long any of that will take, nor why Apple continues to have these intermittent issues en masse.

Apple experienced a similar outage just a few days ago and as I said then, now might be a good time to remind everyone about the best external hard drives for backing up your Mac!
