While Apple is currently reporting that there is no issue (which has been the case for previous iMessage downtimes), a search on Twitter seems to indicate that several users are affected.
Users are reporting that they’re unable to send messages or make FaceTime calls. Users are reporting the issues while on cellular network as well as over Wi-Fi network.
