Apple has fixed an issue that prevented all older Shortcut links from working properly if they were shared through iCloud. The problems occured in the week and were first noticed by MacStories staff.
If an iCloud link was created to share a Shortcut and was older than February 2021, it would display an error message when attempting to use the link or download the Shortcut. It impacted multiple applications and sites that regularly share Shortcuts for other users to download.
Apple confirmed to MacStories editor Federico Viticci that it “aware of an issue where previously shared shortcuts are currently unavailable” and is “working to restore previously shared shortcuts as quickly as possible”. The issues have mainly been resolved with most Shortcut links now working again.
