Apple's iCloud had a major outage this morning, but things are slowly but surely returning to normal.

The outage was reported this morning on Apple's Status page, showing that 11 percent of users were affected. All of iCloud's services, including Mail support, Notes, and sign-in weren't working. Since then, the services have made a comeback and fewer users have been affected.

As of this writing, just Photo Stream, Documents in the Cloud, and Backup are not working. Apple says that it's affecting "less than 1 percent of users."

Apple's iCloud is no stranger to issues. In September, the service was hit by an outage that lasted a couple of days. Last week, the company's App Store, iTunes, iCloud, and the MacBook App Store were inaccessible to many people through part of a day.

CNET has contacted Apple for comment on the latest outage. We will update this story when we have more information.
