Despite the best of efforts, outages are part and parcel of online services. With cloud services and our 24×7 dependence on them, service disruptions can be more than irksome. Giving users a way to check the current status is one way of customer support. Apple has revamped its System Status page and rolled out a more comprehensive one that should help to keep users informed.

In its old incarnation, the System Status page was a bare bones one. As iCloud services mature, Apple has moved into a more detailed layout that displays the health of all Appleā€™s services, stores and iCloud applications.

As you can see in the screenshot below, the (familiar) rounded rectangles in green represent that all services are running smoothly. A problem will be indicated if one of them or more turns orange. The System Status Page has brought additional online services within its ambit. Also, the addition of a timeline at the foot of the page gives you a microscopic view of any outage or disruption. The black line indicates the current time in the respective time-zones.

Scrolling the timeline horizontally will tell you if there were any problems with the services. Issues are shown by orange bars and a notification. The timeline goes back to two days prior to the current one. The new System Status page is a more open initiative from Apple and a welcome one.
