It seems that it is only this application that users can not access, and therefore have no chance to get in to see the photos from the browser, while the synchronization between iPhone and iPad devices still running without any problems.

Currently the causes are unknown but the incident seems strange, since after the recent scandals in which several famous viewed as came to light his most intimate photos, synchronization services and saving images in iCloud is still up close .

Apple not yet ruled on the matter, but the hypothesis that takes more strength is that servers Photos, could have had any problems in recent days and the company itself has decided to remove the application to make the necessary changes before put back into operation.

So no choice but to wait for the Cupertino communicates something about the disappearance of applying iCloud or just wait until the service resumes again.
