A few days ago, we reported on the various complaints from the developer community about some widespread iCloud server malfunctions. The Cupertino company seems to have already taken steps to solve the problem.
The inefficiencies at issue for the past few weeks are creating a lot of problems for developers, struggling with errors syncing data with iCloud. These errors resulted in unsuccessful requests, with http status code 503. According to reports from 9to5mac, some developersbeing contacted by Apple regarding iCloud sync issues. The company appears to have already released a patch, acknowledging the issue but not specifying the cause.
Regarding the recent iCloud sync issue, I received a very kind and detailed response from Apple indicating that the underlying issue causing the 503 errors/sync failures has been fixed! 🎉 (Please share!)

For the moment, Apple has not yet published an official press release. A formal statement is very likely to be made once the issues are finally resolved.
