Chapter in this post:
Yesterday, Tuesday, July 13, 2021, iCloud Mail was so slow for hours that it was practically impossible to work with. Whenever a new mail was displayed, you only saw the sender and the subject. A click on the mail was acknowledged with loading times of 30 to 40 seconds. If you have long loading times or other problems with iCloud Mail, we have a few tips and tricks ready here. You can also use this if another Apple service should cause problems - for example the Apple ID, Apple Music Streaming, iCloud storage or iMessage.
If you think that an Apple service could be malfunctioning, that a server is down or that there is another problem, then take a look at the Apple system status. We introduced this to you three years ago: Apple iCloud, FaceTime or iMessage down or malfunctioning? Check it out here! In the post you will also find the link to the system status of the developer services, if you need it. And in 2020 we also had one, I'm just noticing: Apple System Status - Find iCloud outages and issues with other Apple services here.
You come to the official overview operated by Apple with this link. All services from “Aktien” and “App Store” via “Documents in iCloud” and “FaceTime” to “Siri” and “Where is?” Are currently marked with a green dot, which indicates that the services are available . With regard to yesterday's partial failure, iCloud Mail has the note “Resolved Problem”. If you click on it, you will see that the malfunction lasted for about 4,5 hours.
If the Apple system status does not (yet) show a fault, i.e. iCloud Mail is marked with a green instead of a yellow or red point, there are still solutions to possible problems. If you notice long loading times, emails are displayed slowly or incorrectly or if the connection to the mailboxes is not established, then you can take the following steps on the way to the solution:
If none of this helps, you should call up the Apple system status again after a while and see whether a fault is displayed there. Most of the time, problems in Apple services are resolved very quickly - as in the case described in the course of a few hours. Perhaps you can do without the respective service during this time or switch to another - with regard to sending e-mails, a second e-mail account could be worthwhile in an emergency.
