Apple also says that the iCloud homepage is now customizable, allowing users to add, remove, and rearrange tiles for their favorite apps and features. This is a welcome change, as it will make it easier for users to access the iCloud features they use most often.
New design and layouts
iCloud has been redesigned to be more modern and streamlined, with a focus on simplicity and ease of use. The layouts have also been updated to make it easier to find the information needed.
Users can now mark reminders as complete, flag an email, or see a preview of a file in Drive directly from the tile. This saves users from having to open the app to perform these simple tasks.
Quick actions allow users to perform common tasks on content without having to open the app. For example, users can snooze a reminder or delete an email by hovering on the content and selecting the quick action.
Browser notifications allow users to receive notifications about new emails, calendar events, and other activities on their account, even when they don’t have an iCloud app open.
Widgets can be added to the iCloud.com homepage by clicking on the “+” button in the top right corner. Once added, widgets can be arranged and resized to users liking. Some of the widgets that are available include:
- Mail: This widget shows a list of recent emails.
- Calendar: This widget shows a list of upcoming events.
- Notes: This widget shows a list of recent notes.
- Reminders: This widget shows a list of upcoming reminders.
- Files: This widget shows a list of recent files.
Users can now share folders with other people, giving them access to the files and documents inside. This is a great way to collaborate on projects or share files with family and friends.
Users can now access some files and documents offline, even if they don’t have an internet connection. This is great for when you’re on the go or traveling.
iCloud.com now includes a number of security enhancements, such as two-factor authentication and end-to-end encryption. These enhancements help to protect data from unauthorized access.
