Photos app mysteriously vanishes from iCloud.com (Update: Back for some, Apple says fixed)

Update: Some users are once again reporting the availability of the beta Photos web app on iCloud.com (although not everyone just yet). Let us know if you’re still seeing issues.

Update 2: Apple has acknowledged the outage on its system status page and says the issue is resolved.

The Photos app has been mysteriously pulled from the iCloud.com site, in the last few days. The app, which shows pictures stored in iCloud Photo Library, is now no longer listed on the iCloud.com homepage when logged in … with no comment from Apple to explain the disappearance.
