Complimentary 20GB iCloud storage for MobileMe members expires

If – like me – you were a legacy MobileMe customer who paid for 12 months access the same year iCloud was launched, you’ll have had the luxury of 20GB worth of free iCloud storage for the past two years. Sadly, that luxury has come to an end and everyone from today has been downgraded to the usual, free 5GB storage account. If you’re using more than…

iCloud bookmark sync now supports Chrome and Firefox on Windows

If you are a Windows user, and were disappointed that Apple discontinued Safari for Windows and you don’t want to use Internet Explorer (you can still get it, just don’t expect updates), then you will be happy to hear about this. Apple has updated its iCloud Control Panel for Windows, bringing with it the ability to sync internet bookmarks with the…

iCloud Keychain showing “coming soon”

iCloud Keychain may be having some issues, as on the iOS page it not is showing as “coming soon,” whereas the rest do not have that logo above it (seen above). All of the other features do not show that, other than iOS in the car, which is known to be coming later. Now, being on both Mavericks and iOS 7, I can say that iCloud Keychain has been very, very…

A quick first look at iWork for iCloud [VID]

Having heard that iWork for iCloud beta was available to anyone with an Apple ID, I decided to take it for a quick spin. User interface is very simple and is almost exactly the same across each web app. Most tools for controlling fonts, images and the like are in a control panel on the right hand side. What I particularly like is that when you take it…

iCloud down: Services including Photo Stream and iMessage affected

A quick check over at Apple’s system status page reveals what has now become a familiar sight: Multiple iCloud services are down. Less than 1% of users are apparently affected, but services including iMessage, Photo Stream, Documents in the Cloud and Backup & Restore are all down. It’s supposedly been this way for a few hours now. But, I must…

Apple fixes iTunes in the Cloud bugs with iTunes 11.0.5

For big users of iTunes, recent issues have plagued the Apple music service’s cloud service, iTunes in the Cloud. It was noted that a fix for iTunes in the Cloud was the major feature for yesterday’s iOS 7 beta 6 release, and it appears as if Apple wants to put this issue behind it. Today, the Cupertino tech giant released its latest version of its…

iCloud.com beta site gets iOS 7-like design

Apple has today updated its iCloud website to feature an iOS 7 style design, and iWork for iCloud. All of the web apps available on iCloud, Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Reminders and Find My iPhone have been updated to reflect the iOS 7 versions of their app. The iWork for iCloud beta icons remains as they once were. The website now features…
