While everyone witnessed a big outage in the US for Microsoft Office 236, Tuesday was not a good day for Apple. Many Apple services were hit by an outage on Tuesday evening which affected a lot of Apple services like App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, and Apple Arcade. Although the company only mentioned the issue as a problem for some users, it later accepted that the issue was for all the users.
The number of services that were affected by the outage was Find My, Game Center, iCloud Account & Sign In, iCloud Backup, iCloud Calendar, iCloud Contacts, iCloud Mail, iCloud Web Apps (iCloud.com), iWork for iCloud, Photos, Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple Music radio, Apple TV Plus, Radio, App Store, and Apple Books. Although another update was released from Apple on the same day at 11:24 PM ET that the issue has now been resolved and users will be able to use all the services as before.
Earlier people had to go through a big outage from Microsoft Office 365 a day before, which halted major business in the US for an entire day as almost all the companies were unable to use the necessary business tools from Microsoft, neither were they able to login to the account and restore the files. The outage from Apple also affected a lot of users as they were unable to use any kind of feature on their devices which were connected through iCloud and using online connection with Apple servers.
