So. Is Apple gonna drop trou and own up to what the hell happened, or are they gonna get the servers back up and pretend that we saw all this smoke and no fire?
And the argument that it won't matter as long as it gets up and stays up has already been invalidated by this outage. If they were perfectly in control, this wouldn't have happened. So we know for a fact that they are not 100% in control of the website. (I mean, obviously, 100% control is a mathematical impossibility.) But how much less? What happened? If it was an hour, or even two, I'd let it ride as a cost of running a big-ass data center. But this... warrants an explanation.
How much is this outage affecting you? You can still provision devices etc. through Xcode, documentation's still online. I'm also a full-time iOS developer and hadn't even noticed it had gone down I go to it so infrequently.
If you don't see such a notice, than it is (was) likely some other issue.
