Apple Expands iCloud System Status Page After Repeated Outages

Apple has updated its iCloud System Status page with a much more comprehensive page breaking down outages by service and showing recent outages in a detailed timeline. The old system simple offered written status updates in a more free-form fashion.

Over the past year, Apple has seen various iCloud services go offline several times. Just today, some users were unable to access iCloud mail, iCloud Documents, Photo Stream, and Backup & Restore.

With the change, it looks like Apple is taking iCloud a bit more seriously, particularly following Eddy Cue's promotion to Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services.

I can't tell if it's good or not that Apple has a detailed page devoted to whether iCloud is working or not.

I think it's good overall. The average users probably won't go here and the rest of them will appreciate having the information rather than wondering if it's something wrong they are doing and having to search for up to the minute information from non-Apple resources that might knock Apple along with telling you iMessage is having issues.

Edit: And it might be very motivating for Apple staff to work even harder to make sure every day is as uneventful as possible to keep that timeline blank.
