FaceTime connectivity issues reaching many iOS users

facetime every day

Users on iOS 6, iOS 7, and Macs are having issues connecting FaceTime video calls on Thursday.

Many complaints have rung across Twitter and Apple Support communities. Even some of our devices here at iDownloadBlog are unable to connect for unknown reasons. 

Apple hasn’t officially acknowledged the issue on its Support website, but a discussion on Apple support forum has several users complaining of connectivity issues – predominantly on iOS 6 devices.

Yesterday all 3 of my Apple devices stopped communicating via FaceTime. Some family members were still able to use theirs, but my iPhone 4, iPad 2, and wife’s iPhone 4 (different user ID/Account) gets a “connection failed” message everytime we try. Definitely noticing a trend over the past two days on Apple forums.

Apple services have issues connecting from time-to-time – and this seems to be the case. Interestingly, Sebastien and I were able to get through just fine on Thursday afternoon from our iPhone’s, but not on our iPad out in California. It could be server related, rather than software.
