Apple unveiled its beta.icloud.com website today after the portal went live briefly a couple months ago. Developers can log into the beta iCloud website now and test out Apple’s two brand new web companion apps for Notes and Reminders. The Find My iPhone web app has also been updated with a new look and slight improvements.
We’ve got a quick walkthrough (including screenshots) of the changes revealed in the iCloud beta website today.
Earlier today we showed you that Apple was working on bringing the iOS Notes and Reminders apps to iCloud.com, and Apple has since removed the evidence from beta.icloud.com. After others have dug around to see what Apple is up to with its iCloud beta URL, an interesting find shows a new iCloud developer icon.
It looks like Apple is working on new iCloud developer tools or at the very least some sort of web portal for devs to access beta iCloud features. Will we see new iCloud features at WWDC this summer?
The Notes and Reminders app icons were briefly added to iCloud's beta portal on the web.
If you login to iCloud.com with your Apple ID you can access Apple’s Mail, Address Book, Calendar, Find My iPhone, and iWork apps on the web. Interestingly, beta.icloud.com briefly featured two more apps this morning that are currently unavailable to regular iCloud.com users. Apple pulled the icons after they were discovered a few minutes ago.
The beta version of iCloud.com revealed Apple’s plans to bring its Notes and Reminders iOS apps to the web. You would assumedly be able to see your notes and reminders as they are synced between your iOS devices by logging into the website.
After recently giving developers access to the web apps and syncing capability of iCloud.com, Apple has also turned on the Find my iPhone and Find My Mac features for those with early access to iCloud’s web portal.
Developers can now login to iCloud.com and view the location of their registered iDevices and Macs in a map view.
