What you need to know
- Multiple Apple services are currently “slow or unavailable” for some users.
- Apple Photos, iCloud Backup, iCloud Mail, iCloud Drive, and iCloud Storage Upgrades are all affected.
Multiple Apple services are currently “slow or unavailable” for some users, Apple has confirmed. It also confirmed that it is working on getting all impacted services back up and running, too.
At the time of writing Apple is suffering from issues that are affecting Photos, iCloud Backup, iCloud Mail, iCloud Drive, and iCloud Storage Upgrades all at the same time. Apple isn’t saying exactly what’s wrong or when we can expect service to be restored, but it’s possible this could be related to a wider internet issue caused by an Akamai CDN outage.
If this is indeed related to the Akamai outage it’s likely there isn’t a great deal Apple can do to get things back up and running, unfortunately.
Now might be a good time to remind everyone about the best external hard drives for backing up your Mac!
