iMessage Experiences Outage for Second Time in Five Days [Update]

Apple’s iMessage protocol is currently down for the count, yet again. This is the second outage in five days, with the last outage occurring last Thursday. Messages we have tried sending to our contacts won’t show up as “Delivered” and just hang.

During times like these, most users will fall back to text messaging (what’s that?) or either popular third party apps like WhatsApp.

Are you currently affected by the iMessage outage?

Update: Apple’s iCloud status page mentions the outage:
