It seems Apple’s iCloud woes are not over. The service is down for some users including myself. It’s unreachable from iCloud.com and files and emails are failing ton sync. Apple’s System Status page reports iCloud and the rest of Apple’s online service as operating normally when iCloud is very clearly not accessible for some.
Apple today opened up access to its iCloud for iWork beta to the public, following a period of testing which has seen the service gradually becoming more broadly available. Initially, only developers had access, but in July, some non-developers began receiving invites. Now, any user with an Apple ID can test out iWork ahead of its official fall launch.
Cubby, the new cloud storage player from LogMeIn which aggressively, if belatedly, entered the market this year to compete alongside Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, SkyDrive and others, is today revealing its pricing and Pro plans.
Apple has added extra security measures to iCloud, including alerts if someone tries to change your account password, download iCloud files to a new device, or a log a new device onto an account. Users can then change their passwords immediately or notify Apple security. The alerts will start in two weeks, CEO Tim Cook told the Wall Street Journal.
