Apple Experienced iCloud Issues After Christmas Surge

“If you just received a new iPhone 12, Apple Watch or iPad, you might not have gotten immediate satisfaction — Apple was having some iCloud issues,” reports CNET:

The issue started early on Christmas Day, according to the iCloud account and sign-in entry on Apple’s system status page. More than a day later, as of late morning PT Saturday, the Apple system status page indicated that the issue with the storage service remained “ongoing.” But by 2 p.m. PT Saturday, the iCloud issue was marked “resolved.” No specifics were given about how widespread the problems might have been, only that “some users were affected.”

The company also noted issues with Apple ID sign-in.
