Apple To Upgrade iCloud With Photo Sharing, Notes And Reminders
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has briefly reported that Apple is planning to unveil an upgrade to iCloud at next month’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
The report says that one of the main new features in the upgraded version of iCloud would be a photo-sharing functionality.
The new features, expected to be announced at Apple’s world-wide developer conference beginning June 11, will allow iCloud users to share sets of photos with other iCloud users and to comment on them, these people said. Currently, users can only store one set of photos in iCloud through a feature called Photo Stream, which is designed to sync those photos to other Apple devices, not share them.
It appears that Apple also has plans to extend the Photo Stream feature to videos. This new feature would allow users to access their personal videos through iCloud.
Finally, the report confirms that the Notes and Reminders icons spotted on a beta.icloud.com website late last week will be associated with new functionality to sync those services via iCloud for access through both dedicated apps and the iCloud website.
All of the new iCloud features are expected to make their way into iOS 6, whose preview is expected at WWDC.
