Apple Via The Verge: "iCloud, perhaps more than any Apple software product, is meant to 'just work'. When Apple introduced iCloud, it made clear its hopes to eradicate settings menus and file systems in favor of automation. Steve Jobs pledged to do a better job than he did on MobileMe, Apple's notoriously horrible stab at web services a few years ago. With iCloud, changes you make to documents on your computer show up instantly on your iPhone and vice versa. 'It just works,' Jobs exclaimed when he first demoed the service in 2011, 'Everything happens automatically'." Except, it doesn't. Not for non-trivial data requirements where you want to use Core Data.

Core Data or iCloud?

That makes me wonder: what is the faulty product here?
iCloud or Core Data?

FWIW: I use document based iCloud in my apps, which used to work fine, until a year or so, when iCloud documents shared with other users suddenly stopped working. Single user iCloud works great for me.

That's like asking if oxygen or hydrogen is to blame for drowning a person. Its the combination.

It's the hydrogen. Without it, people would be able to breath the oxygen.

Isn't that how it works?
