Apple's System Status page showed that for around half an hour on Tuesday night, users may not have been able to access the two services. Some other services flagged for issues within a similar time frame included Apple Messages for Business, iWork for Cloud, Photos, Walkie Talkie, and certain iCloud features.
On Wednesday, all issues were marked as resolved.
The service outage detector Downdetector saw more than 2,000 users sending in complaints about iMessage and FaceTime not working for them.
The two Apple services went down on the same day that Meta Platforms Inc.'s WhatsApp also saw an outage for about two hours, affecting thousands across the globe.
