Apple has updated its iCloud system status page to note that some of its users might face issues while sending iMessages or placing FaceTime calls. According to the page, the services have been down for “some users” since the past one hour.
Complains about the two services being down are being posted on Twitter since quite some time.
Apple doesn’t mention any specific timeframe as to when these issues will be resolved. If your iPhone’s stuck trying to send an iMessage, just long tap on the message bubble and select the “Send as SMS” option to workaround the service’s downtime.
Are you facing these issues?
It looks like the services are back up and running. Let us know if you’re still facing issues.
