Boo hoo-hoo.

If they are such, they should perhaps think about what and how they post in an Apple-friendly forum, so that they don't invite (apparently thick-skinned) responses like mine?

(Sorry, but I sincerely hope you're not thin-skinned).

Did you not read what I wrote or understand the context?

Go back to reading 101 and reading comprehension -101

I guess the trolls are out.

Yeah it is one of my favourite features of the iPhone. I would love it if you could set more than one DND time span though, perhaps with a different DND list. Maybe for during work or whatever. I know you can do it manually, but it would be great to set and forget for long periods.

Known Outages
Outages information is sourced from multiple searches of AppleInsider, CNet and Google Search.

September 10, 2012 - September 12, 2012 (Mail)
September 17, 2012 unknown downtime (iMessage)
October 25, 2012 "a few hours" (iMessage)
October 30, 2012 from 1415 PT to 1554 PT (iMessage, FaceTime)
November 18, 2012 from 1145 PT to 1632 PT (iMessage, FaceTime ) - Note* this occurred during Hurricane Sandy
November 18, 2012 from 1536 PT to 1631 PT iCloud Storage Upgrades
November 19, 2012 from 0500 PT to 0800 PT (iTunes Match)


Average Uptime per Month by Month

October 2011 - 100% uptime
November 2011 - 100% uptime
December 2011 - 100% uptime
January 2012 - 100% uptime
February 2012 - 100% uptime
March 2012 - 100% uptime
April 2012 - 100% uptime
May 2012 - 100% uptime
June 2012 - 100% uptime
July 2012 - 100% uptime
August 2012 - 100% uptime
September 2012 - 90% uptime (see note - downtime assumed as 72 hours for the month)
October 2012 - 99.233% uptime
November 2012 - 99.56% uptime
December 2012 - 100% uptime
January 2012 - 100% uptime
February 2012 - 100% uptime
March 2012 - ??

When the outage can't be practically and reasonably defined we will use a "worst case scenario" (the entire day)

Average Uptime Since Release
99.34% averaged across all months including "worst case scenarios"



Time from Last Downtime November 19, 2012
121 days
17.29 weeks
2,904 hours
174,240 minutes

Very in-depth post MacBookPro! You put a lot of time into it, something few here are willing to do. You always seem put a lot of effort into research, so thanks

A correction tho. The days since last outage isn't 121. You overlooked the Feb. 28th iCloud problems from this year. so it's actually been about 22 days since the last outage. To be fair Google Drive had one of their own for a few hours this week. It happens to all cloud services.

EDIT: iMessage was out just yesterday for about 10% of users according to Apple.

You also missed at least a couple of Nov/2011 failures...

http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57332399-263/icloud-not-working-properly-check-status-page/
a June/2012 outage...
http://www.cnbc.com/id/47893867
and a July/2012 outage.
http://news.techworld.com/mobile-wireless/3373488/apple-suffers-icloud-app-store-facetime-outage/

Also correct the year on the last three months in your list . You accidently tagged them as 2012 when it should be 2013.

EDIT 2: It looks like there were only five months last year that didn't have a reported iCloud outage. April had one too.

EDIT 3: You really should probably go back and redo your report MacBook. You also missed outages in October, November and December of 2011.

That means most months in your chart should show at least one service interruption

So I can find files that are related when I need them. When I teach class I keep everything in a file with the name of the class. This includes documents of various kinds and even movies and Keynote files. It would be really difficult to find the files I want on iCloud.

If you think that's the best way to get what you want from the forum, berate them early, often and hard. To me it seems like instead of interesting discussion all you'll get is "me-too" praise from the choir loft for everything Apple makes and does, but then maybe finding that boring puts me in the minority.

Well of course they use the cloud the most. Apple does not have a SD card on their phones and they took away the multi drive on the Laptops. Where.. window and Android users have all the options. I dont trust the cloud nor would I ever use it.

Maybe actually read the article before spewing your useless FUD. Then you'd see that absolutely nothing you've said has anything to do with what is being discussed.
