Apple’s iCloud Mail service has crashed in what is understood to be a global outage.
Hundreds of users have been affected by the outage on Wednesday morning AEDT, affecting the iCloud website and Mail app from loading.
Apple issued a notice to customers on Wednesday morning saying: “Users may be unable to send, receive or access mail.
It is understood the outage also affected Apple Pay, AppleCare on Device and Apple Music, which have since been resolved.
Users may also struggle to sign into iCloud Web Apps, Apple has said.
Apple has not indicated when the outage will be restored.

Frustrated customers have taken to social media to complain of the outage.
One user wrote to X, formerly Twitter: “iCloud is down, and I’m expecting an important email. This is so irritating.”
Another said they have been hit by a third outage in four days.
“Anyone else having issues accessing iCloud Mail? Literally cannot get any of my recent mail to download…” one woman wrote.
