Some People Are Freaking Out Because Apple’s iMessage is Broken

Game Center still works.
Not blessed.

Not blessed.

Don’t be alarmed, but Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime are both experiencing difficulties. According to the company’s support page, “some users being affected” by problems with the messaging platforms.

We tested to see if we were some of the users “being affected,” and it turns out to be true. Our texts were delivered in as the green-colored SMS instead as blue-hued iMessages. At least iMessage obsessives can be assured their whines were heard: “My iMessge” is currently trending on Twitter in the U.S.

Your actual voice remains unaffected, so feel free to kvetch to the nearest human until it’s back online.
