Unfortunately for everyone, Apple just took a page out of Facebook’s playbook. 

One day after Facebook suffered a massive outage, a wide array of Apple services are down for some users. Offerings including Find My iPhone, Find My Friends, News, and whole chunks of iCloud are on the fritz. 

A look at the company’s system status page shows just how widespread the problems are and appear to have began at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Oops.

According to DownDetector (which is owned by Mashable’s parent company), at the time of this writing users across the globe are experiencing problems with iCloud.  

We reached out to Apple in an effort to determine the cause of the outage, and when the issue will be fixed, but received no response as of press time. 

So, you know, maybe wait until it’s all fixed to lose your $1,000 phone. 

UPDATE: March 14, 2019, 1:47 p.m. PDT: An Apple spokesperson confirmed to Mashable that all services are working again.
