The outage affects several services, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, the App Store, Podcasts, Contacts, and Apple Arcade.
As of Monday night, several of Apple’s web-based services, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, the App Store, Podcasts, Contacts, and Apple Arcade, were experiencing outages in some parts of the world. According to Apple’s own service uptime dashboard, users in India may be experiencing issues with certain iCloud features, including Calendar, Contacts, and Private Relay, as well as Apple Maps and the Find My network.
The problems appear to be escalating, with different ones marked offline at various times. In other parts of the world, people have taken to social media to report even more widespread Apple outages affecting the App Store, Device Enrollment Program, Apple School Manager, the iTunes Store, Apple News, and more.
According to Apple’s online dashboard, several of its consumer and internal services have experienced temporary or recurring outages. In the case of the iCloud Account and Sign In service, the page notes that while users may be unable to sign in to their Apple accounts, they can still use the services. iCloud Web Apps, on the other hand, were flagged with the explanation “This service may be slow or unavailable.” iOS Device Activation became unavailable as well, but was later marked as resolved, despite the fact that other Apple services remained unavailable.
