After Google experienced a Gmail blackout, it was Apple’s turn to feel the brunt of service outage. Apple acknowledged Wednesday that “less than 1 percent” of its iCloud users were unable to access iCloud mail. The company was informed about the outage as some customers posted their complaints to an Apple support forum, saying that they had been unable to access their mail for over 30 hours.

If we are to believe what Apple CEO Time Cook said during a presentation last February that his company has about 100 million iCloud users, then we can say that about a million or so customers were affected by the outage.

The iCloud provides up to 5GB of free storage for documents, music, or photos. It also stores your email, contacts, and calendars, and be able to push them to all of your Apple devices.

Users complained that they could not receive any email from iCloud, even spam. Some of them also said that pop-up messages appeared, asking them to purchase more available capacity, even though their account has plenty of space.
