OREANDA-NEWS. June 06, 2016. Apple's services are functioning as normal, after an outage that saw the App Store, Game Centre and plenty of iCloud features knocked for six.

Apple's status page says that all its services are running as normal after the glitches that appear to have taken hold across the globe yesterday evening UK time.

The App Store, Photos and iTunes in the Cloud were among the services affected, Forbes reports.

In reference specifically to the issues that affected Apple's iCloud services, the company's status page reads, "Users may have experienced slower than usual performance when using iCloud Drive, Backup, iCloud Notes, iWork for iCloud, and Photos. Users may also have experienced slowness with multiple services at iCloud.com."

Apple is yet to respond to a request for comment on what caused the issues with its services.
