Apple works to resolve iCloud issues after outages reported

Apple ran into issues with iCloud for some users on Thursday

Reports of iCloud outages made the rounds on Thursday, only a day after Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp reported similar large-scale outages.

9 to 5 Mac reported early Thursday afternoon that many Apple users weren’t able to log in to iCloud and the issue was affecting access of certain iCloud apps like like Photos, Contacts, and Calendar.

Apple’s own system status page reported the issues across multiple iCloud apps with the issues beginning at 11:51 a.m. ET.
