Extended iCloud outage ends, but leaves lingering problems

updated 10:27 am EDT, Fri September 14, 2012

Mail accounts may see misdated, mislabeled messages

An extended iCloud Mail outage finally came to an end late last night. Apple's system status page indicates that services returned to normal at about 11:13PM Pacific time on Thursday; problems originally began at 2:16AM on September 11th. Affected people were either unable to access email, or saw slow delivery of messages.

Some people are still suffering from iCloud issues, however. Complaints notes that in some instances, email has been been dumped into inboxes with mislabeled subject lines, as well as mislabeled dates, all set to 12/31/69.

While iCloud has had a number of outages since launch, most have been relatively brief, resolved within hours. Apple will have to have the service in peak condition next week, as it is shipping iOS 6 and later the iPhone 5. Apple servers will likely be jammed on both days, particularly if a sufficient number of people try over-the-air firmware updates.
