Apple has launched a new status page for it’s stores, services like iMessages and Siri ,and iCloud that is far more granular and informative than the previous version. While the old page was simply a list of status messages pertaining to iCloud, the new page contains a board with a section each for Services, Stores, and iCloud. An indicator, either a green square for ‘Normal’ or yellow triangle for ‘Issue’, gives the status of each individual service, such as iMessage, Siri, or Mail.
Additionally, below the board there is a timeline that details specific issues, as well as who is affected by them. The timeline gives the exact amount of time an issue lasted, both in text and on a view reminiscent of Calendar’s day view.
This is a much more comprehensive and status page compared to the previous version, and it shows that Apple takes communication about service issues seriously.
