The new look of iCloud web.
Apple is giving the web version of iCloud a makeover. You can read exactly what has changed in this iCloud beta here.
iPhone users without a MacBook or iPad will no doubt have already complained that they are not a full part of the Apple ecosystem. The cooperation between different Apple devices is one of the things that makes an iPhone, iPad or Apple computer so attractive. For example, users who only have an iPhone will have to use their browser if they want to organize their photo library or files from a computer. For those users, Apple is now bringing an update to the web version of iCloud for the first time since 2019. When logging in to the website icloud.com, the question appears whether you want to use “a completely new icloud.com”.
When opening the new web version of iCloud, which is also available via beta.icloud.com, you immediately notice that the platform has received a visual makeover. The minimalist white background is exchanged for a bright blue one. Moreover, much more is possible from the start screen than before: the app icons that we are used to in the meantime get their own tile. Furthermore, Photos, Notes, Reminders and Calendar are available from widgets on the home screen. You don’t have to click any further to consult your latest photos or notes. Files from Drive, Keynote, Pages, and Numbers are also directly available to those who want them.
The tiles on the new iCloud homepage can also be rearranged, deleted and recreated. At the bottom of the page is a handy button: ‘Edit homepage’. This way you ensure that the page looks the way you want.
When this new version of iCloud will be available to everyone remains uncertain. It will probably be a while before this new version becomes the standard version. In any case, beta.icloud.com is now already available for anyone who wants to use it.
