Apple’s iCloud is down with status confirmation

By Daniel Chubb - May 21, 2015

The Apple iCloud service is down today on May 21, 2015. This has been confirmed by Apple’s own status page with many yellow alerts for iCloud Backup, Drive, Keychain, Mail, account access, iWork for iCloud beta and other services. The problems started at around 9:30am in the UK and also impact Find My iPhone on Mac, iPad, and iPod touch.

Other services showing a warning with problems include Photos being slow for some users, the iCloud account sign in, and iMovie Theater. As already mentioned, iCloud might not be totally down for everyone today and some users could just see things hanging or going very slow.


You can see the Apple system status page above with all the warnings. This was taken at the time of writing, so some of these services might have come back up and returned to normal green status already. If you have problems, then let us know what country you’re in and how long iCloud has been down or having problems?

We have reached out to Apple for more details, although they don’t usually give responses like this.
