Some Apple Services Back Up After Temporary Outage
Apple said Thursday that some Internet services for its mobile devices, such as photo sharing, backup and some messaging, were affected by an outage that lasted nearly 11 hours.
The Cupertino, Calif., company said less than one percent of customers were unable to access document streaming, backup and photo services after about 9:30 pm PT Wednesday until service was restored at 8:22 am Thursday. Apple also said photos and other items sent through its messaging service may also have been unavailable.
In a shorter interruption that began later, nearly 17 percent of iTunes users were unable to make purchases for less than an hour Thursday morning.
