Widespread service outage affects half of all iCloud users

Apple’s iCloud service is down this morning in an outage that is affecting 50% of all iCloud users. According to Apple’s system status webpage, the downtime is affecting all aspects of iCloud including Mail, iTunes Match, account logins and more.

This is the second outage affecting iCloud and other Apple online services in a week. Last Thursday, another outage took down iCloud, the iTunes store, the iOS App Store and the Mac App Store. The downtime lasted only a few hours for the stores and most of the day for iCloud. Unlike today’s issue, last week’s service interruption only affected some users.
