Checking Apple’s system status

Apple System Status Website:

Strange errors such as being unable to sync your iCloud documents, or being unable to place FaceTime calls can have their root cause in an external place that is not located on your device. As modern technology is closely linked to the so-called “cloud”, in Apple’s case a network of servers called iCloud, many issues can simply be a temporary issue with their systems. This occurs multiple times a year and could be the reason why you e.g. can’t check your email or your iOS and Mac calendar is giving you trouble.

The Apple System Status Page displays a list of all currently active services. If there are any current issues, the problem will be indicated by a change in color of the green status icon. In addition, there is a list of currently known problems at the bottom of the page that shows you when the issue has occurred and if Apple has managed to fix it in the meantime.
