iMessage And FaceTime Down For A While

The world ground to a halt for some moments earlier today, and I am referring to those who use Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime services, as both services were actually disrupted, so it is a good thing that they are up and running normally once again.

Apple iMessage outage happened earlier this morning

Apple’s instant messaging service, iMessage, was said to have experienced outage issues worldwide instead of it being a local occurrence, and it certainly contradicts the “All Clear” condition on its iCloud status website. The service outage is not a long and sustained one, but rather, one that happens sporadically.
