iCloud Mail is currently causing problems for several Apple users, for which the service has been down for several hours now. Users affected by this disruption are unable to access their e-mail account, as well as to carry out operations that involve the use of the e-mail to some extent.
iCloud down, Apple is working on the problem
Some users are experiencing problems while using iCloud Mail, with some cases even being unable to access their mail account via the Mail app or third party app. Starting at 9:09 am on Monday, July 12, Apple's system status monitoring page reports a "problem" with iCloud Mail. According to the notification, the problem is still ongoing and "some users are not affected".
The nature of the problem is not disclosed, but it is clearly stated that "affected users may not be able to access iCloud mail". It also seems to be a problem limited to iCloud Mail only, given that other iCloud online services that seem to work with no errors reported.
Several Twitter posts show that a large number of users are currently plagued with this localized iCloud Mail down. Online service outages are quite common nowadays, and have previously occurred on Apple's iCloud service. As for the downs related to email specifically, a similar outage occurred last April, along with sporadic global problems in May.
At the moment, therefore, it is still unclear what is causing the problem and what Apple is doing to solve it in practice. The company limited itself to acknowledging the existence of this disservice and declared that it was working to eliminate it.
