A small number of users are currently experiencing issues with a number of iCloud services. At the time of this post, Apple’s System Status page showed issues with Apple Music, the App Store, the Mac App Store, iCloud Drive, iCloud Notes, iCloud Web Apps, iCloud for Work, and more.

Apple says less than 0.04% of its users are affected. Those users are experiencing “slower than normal performance.” It isn’t know if the slowdowns are associated with an Amazon Web Services outage that is affecting a good many websites and web services today.

This is the first workout for Apple’s new System Status page, which now offers additional information on the individual services that may be experiencing issues. In place of a status bar at the bottom of the page, users can now click an individual service to get a report about what is happening with that service.
