Day before yesterday, April 17 , an Apple Support Community page was created discussing the disruption of service and now has over 100 replies from affected users from various parts of the World.
My Dad frequently uses iCloud as his mail client and when he told me that mails weren’t being sent or received, I tried to troubleshoot the problem with some usual techniques but all of them failed. So I headed to Apple’s Support Forum and searched for the topic, to my surprise there was already a thread with over 100 replies, indicating it to be a Worldwide issue.
According to those who have had a conversation with Apple support representatives, the issue is sporadic and has not affected a large number of users but this is being proved wrong with every passing minute.
The company’s iCloud status page reports that less than 1% of all users are having problems with the mail service, and a fix is expected soon.
Users affected by this issue have no access to their iCloud mail accounts, whether it be from the web or from their iDevice, which points out that the issue lies with Apple’s servers.
Amidst all this you can still heave a sigh of relief as all other features of the iCloud are functioning fine.
The source f this issue is yet unknown and Apple has no released any information regarding the matter.
