Hours after Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp experienced major outages social media butterflies are now having to grapple with outages with Apple’s iCloud platform.
According to online forums users are experiencing problems with Apple’s official status page littered with yellow dot indicating that Backup, Calendar, Contacts, Drive, Keychain, Mail, Notes, Reminders, and the iCloud as well as Web App services are facing problems.
The yellow diamonds signify issues with all of their iCloud-centric features.

The Game Centre matchmaking and leader board service is also struggling, as are the Photos, iWork and Screen Time apps.
Clicking on each of the affected services brings up the message: “Users may be experiencing a problem with this service.”
Services such as FaceTime, Apple Music, iMusic, the App Store, Apple Books, Maps, News, and Siri are running as normal.
There’s been no official comment from Apple as to when we can expect the services to be up and running again, but it’s the second major outage of the year for Apple’s online platform.
Back in March services like News, Photos and Find My Phone, as well as direct iCloud services like Drive, Contacts, Calendar, Mail, Backup, Notes, Reminders went down for a number of hours.
