Apple iCloud Migraines Continue

Earlier this month I posted about iCloud issues preventing a number of services from working. The issues continued to plague me and other users. Apple support personnel had no answers and dealing with them proved…well let’s just call it less than satisfactory.

Apple recently released updates to all of its many devices on May 18 and lo and behold included in the release notes was this little gem.

Hope? Relief? Too early to tell. Losing the ability to sign in with an Apple Watch was usually the first indicator something was wrong. As mentioned in that earlier report this seemingly random disconnecting from some iCloud services was just that: random. And though I pinned the issue on a previous series of Ventura updates it didn’t manifest until few days after I had installed the updates. 

So I installed these new updates and crossed my fingers. For a day things seemed fine. Two days in though the problems resurfaced on the MacBook Air. A reboot has so far solved that. (There had been multiple reboots since installing the latest updates.) Three days in the issues returned to the iMac. Again a reboot seems to have solved things. For the moment. 

We’ll see how things roll going forward, but I’m guessing this isn’t solved yet. Neither are Apple’s support issues. Which is another story for another day.
