Isn't Apple ID supposed to work for Apple gear?

@alexbuzzbee @sheogorath I went to check and appleid.apple.com works fine with my Fedora 29 & Firefox. Sounds like fake news to me.

Maybe they got complaints, maybe they got it fixed, maybe it wasn't intended. There are many reasons why it works now.

Fun thing is I was talking about this today during lunch and at least the person I was talking with also said that he was wondering why this happens, so I guess it just got the needed attention to get fixed.
