Fortunately — or, unfortunately, depending on how urgently you need to access the respective services — there’s no troubleshooting that can be done to resolve the current issues. Eventually, Apple will fix the outages, but in the meantime, you can check back for updates.

With any luck, the outages will be resolved by the end of the day today.
