As of about 15 minutes ago, there were only 113 reports of issues with iCloud’s email service, so the storm, as it were, has likely passed. If you’re still experiencing issues, they will likely be cleared up within the next 15-20 minutes.
According to Apple, all services have been restored to good working order, so we’ll monitor online activity and Downdetector for any new reports of ongoing iCloud issues.
It seems the UK is also experiencing similar issues with iCloud as the US, though in the UK, it’s likely that fewer users would be impacted since it’s after business hours. For anyone trying to get some personal work done, however, the outage is likely to be just as frustrating.
The major services that appear to be hit are iCloud mail, which Apple reports as a total outage, with some partial outages being reported for other apps.
