Sponsored post also reported at that time that iCloud and other Apple services—including the App Store and Apple Music—were "currently experiencing downtime or slow performance.", which tracks online outages, showed 583 users reporting iCloud problems at the apparent peak of the outage.

The iCloud website was again available as of this writing, and other Apple services appear to have been restored as well, according to an update to the report.

Apple's system status page does not appear to have been updated to indicate issues with any services. CRN has reached out to Apple for comment.
