As of writing, Apple's System Status page is showing all of its services are back to normal but this was after a few hours that a bevy of iCloud services were out of service including Backup, Mail, Keychain, Calendar, Contacts, iCloud sign in, Notes, Reminders, Find My iPhone, and Photos.

Many users have tweeted the Apple Support Twitter account complaining about the lack of connectivity.

For Apple's part, they seem to be working on the issue:

One weird thing that I've noticed that I haven't seen anybody else report on is Apple's Twitter account is completely empty. It appears as if all of their tweets have been deleted.


Hopefully all of the issues with iCloud will get sorted out as well as this puzzling lack of tweets from Apple. Facebook claimed that its issues were due to a server configuration change. However, it seems curious that Google, Facebook, and Apple all experienced outages in the same week. Perhaps it is all unconnected but it does seem interesting.

Hey, its not easy installing all those backdoors so the government can delete content it doesn't like. Cut them a little slack.
