UPDATE 3/21/2022 2:15 PM ET: Apple services are now back online. If you are still having issues, consider restarting the app or your phone/Mac/iPad.

If you are in the Apple ecosystem, you may have noticed issues. Services like Apple Maps, iMessage, the App Store, iTunes, Apple Arcade, and Apple Music are down or struggling to load.

Apple Maps, iCloud, Apple Music, and the App Store are all struggling. Downdetector outages are in the tens of thousands presently. We are noticing issues with iMessage sending images, as well.

It’s currently unclear if the issues are worldwide, or just in the US. Currently, KnowTechie is having issues loading both the App Store and Apple Maps.
