Apple has released an updated System Status report page which now lists the company’s entire set of online services, including iMessage, FaceTime, the App Stores, etc.
Previously available as a simplistic reeling page where every new occurrence would come on top, the new System Status page is now called “Apple Services, Stores, and iCloud.”
As its name implies, the page now offers a clear view of the status of each service offered by Apple. This is likely an effort on behalf of Eddy Cue
, whom CEO Tim Cook put in charge to fix the company’s web services once and for all.
A grid view is offered with a symbol in front of each service representing its status – working or experiencing issues.
Issues are marked with an orange triangle, whereas a working service is assigned a green square with rounded edges (much like the iOS application icons).
Services includes Apple ID, iMessage, Siri, Game Center, iChat, Dictation, Maps, and FaceTime.
The Stores include the App Store, the Mac App Store, the iTunes Store and the iBookstore, as well as the Apple Online Store and Photo Print Products (also tied to the Apple online store).
iCloud engulfs the most features – 15 in all: Mail; Contacts; Calendar; Reminders; Bookmarks & iCloud Tabs; Notes; Photo Stream; Documents in the Cloud; Backup; Find My iPhone; iPod touch and Mac; Find My Friends; Back to My iMac; iTunes in the Cloud; iTunes Match; Photo Journals; Account & Sign In; Storage Upgrades.
Below the grid, Apple displays a system status indicator by the hour. For example, earlier today multiple iCloud services acted up.
For customers looking to see who’s to blame for an outage occurring between 1:13 AM and 1:32 AM, Apple confirms that “Users may have been unable to use iCloud Documents, Photo Stream, iPhoto Journals, or Backup & Restore. Users may have also been unable to send or download attachments in iMessage.”
