Sorry all, but I am at my wits end. I have tested this website on 9 different devices. Multiple browsers, cleared cache, cookies and history settings but I am only seeing the outdated version published on April 11th, 2017.

I would like to poll what version you guys are seeing. The date is near the bottom of the page.

Published April 11th, 2017 or Published June 26th, 2017.

I can't believe I am the only one having this issue.

I see the June version when using your link. If I remove "en-us" then it autofills "en-nz" and shows me the April version.

Guys, you have no idea what a relief it is knowing I'm not crazy. :confused:
[doublepost=1498532335][/doublepost]Just checked in with my mother and brother, both over 120 miles away from me currently, their devices show April 11th as the published date. These device have iOS 10.3.2, 10.3.3, iOS 11, macOS 10.12.5 and macOS 10.13. Something is definitely wrong with Apple and I am officially not crazy.

You definitely still are, regardless. :)

Aw man. :(
many servers are spread out world wide, not just one single server we all connect to anymore, based on where ur dns requests come from, u get routed to the nearest server to u. while they usually all have the same content (eg: youtube does this), sometimes they can be out of sync or dns routing issues or slow dns propagations can tamper with it.

viewing from the cable line i get the april version, viewing on my phone with 4g i get the june version.

CDN stands for content distribution network.

I just find it very weird that multiple devices throughout the state of California are all seeing the April version, and it has been like that all day. Doesn't matter if its on WiFi or Cellular. So its an issue on Apple's end? Thank you for taking the time by the way.
