Supported Features

We support the following features in our integration with the Apple Books status page:

If Apple Books is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

Warn notifications are used when Apple Books is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

Apple Books posts separate notifications for planned maintenance work. StatusGator will notify subscribers when Apple Books enters a pre-planned maintenance window, keeping you up to date.

Apple Books does not publish a feed of proactive maintenance events on their status page at this time. If they do, be sure to let us know and we'll aggregate Apple Books maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Apple Books posts issues on their status page, we collect the main headline message and include that brief information or overview in notifications to StatusGator subscribers.

At this time, we do not collect detailed status updates from the Apple Books status page. If you need this capability, please be sure to reach out.

Because Apple Books has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is an essential feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.
