“Apple has today launched a new status page for its iCloud, store and general services that provides far more detail about status and uptimes of its various cloud and backend components,” Matthew Panzarino reports for TNW.

“The page features detailed breakdowns of each service, categorized by section including Services, Stores and iCloud.,” Panzarino reports. “Each section is then broken down by the product that could be affected by service disruption.”

Panzarino writes, “This additional level of detail is welcome, especially as Apple transforms into a full-on services company. Services like iCloud mail, iMessage, Maps and backups are ones that are integral to an iOS device user’s workflow, and it’s important that Apple owns this. There is a real need for culpability and transparency when it comes to these services.”
