Update at 9:30 a.m. PT: All services were restored as of 8:30 a.m. PT.
Apple iCloud users were hit by yet another outage, though this one seems to have affected a relatively small percentage of users.
As of Thursday 4 a.m. PT, Apple's status page reveals issues with iMessage, Photo Stream, Documents in the Cloud, Backup and Restore, and iPhoto Journals. Apple's description of the problem reports that people may be unable to use those services and unable to send or download attachments in iMessage.
The page says that less than 1 percent of users were affected. Just how many people does that include? In April, Apple said that its. So that means these services may have been out of commission for just under 3 million people.
Apple's status page also indicates that the outage started Wednesday around 9:30 p.m. PT and that it was resolved Thursday around 8:30 a.m. PT.
