A number of Apple services, including iCloud, the iTunes store, Apple TV+ and Apple Maps, were experiencing outages on Monday.

Why it matters: In addition to consumer-facing services, Apple also relies on its cloud services to update and activate devices as well as for a chunk of its retail operations.

Details: According to Apple's online service dashboard, a wide swath of consumer-facing services were impacted. In addition, Apple said some device enrollment and AppleCare services were experiencing outages.

  • Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said that some corporate and retail store operations were also affected.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Update, 5:18 pm PT: Apple says on its dashboard that all services are now operating normally.
