Apple is having iCloud device activation problems at the worst possible time
You're not alone when you're having trouble getting your newly gifted iPad or Apple Watch working. As AppleInsider first reported, Apple is warning of iCloud account and login issues (as we write this) that seem to have started on Christmas Day - just like how many people first set up their devices. While Apple didn't say much in the warning, it did tell a Twitter user that "high capacity" is causing problems.
We asked Apple for a comment.
It wouldn't be shocking if the sheer volume of gifted products were directly responsible. Device activations already tend to peak around Christmas regardless of brand. That demand could increase slightly during a pandemic when people buy tablets to talk to distant friends or smart speakers to play music while working from home.
Even so, this is certainly not good timing. This could affect the initial experience with Apple gadgets for many users, even if that feeling is likely to pass once activation works properly. Let's just hope that this problem doesn't last long - and that similar problems don't affect other manufacturers.
