Some users are reporting issues connecting to Apple’s iCloud services this afternoon. The issue affects those attempting to sync files to iCloud as well as services that require access to Apple’s servers, such as email, calendar and to-do list applications.

The issue became apparent after users started reporting problems syncing data. Fantastical — a service that uses Apple’s servers to sync between calendars — users reported “status code 400” errors when the service tried to connect to Apple’s servers.

Fantastical later confirmed the problem on Twitter:

Apple hasn’t officially released a statement to confirm, and it doesn’t appear to be affecting all users or services, but a significant number of people have taken to Twitter to voice their displeasure over the un-announced outage.

The service is working intermittently for some members of the TNW team. At times it makes the connection while others it completely fails and bombards my screen with error messages. You?
