Apple iCloud issues linger into a second day
If you just got a new iPhone 12, Apple Watch or iPad, hold tight — Apple’s having some . That’s likely the result of a large volume of people trying to set up or update iCloud accounts following the gift-giving of the Christmas holiday.
The issue started early on Christmas Day, according to the iCloud account and sign-in entry on Apple’s system status page, and it’s “ongoing.” More than a day later, the Apple system status page indicates that the issue with the remains “ongoing.”
The company also noted issues with Apple ID sign-in. In a Twitter reply later on Christmas Day to the query of an Apple user looking to set up an iPad and a HomePod Mini, Apple Support acknowledged problems, saying the company was “experiencing a high capacity at this time which is impacting your ability to set up iCloud.” The Apple Support tweet said to “please try back in a couple of hours.”
Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
