Apple Debuts New iCloud.com Beta Site With Fresh Look, Reminders App

Ahead of the launch of iOS 13, iPadOS, and macOS Catalina, Apple has updated its iCloud.com beta site with a fresh look and a new Reminders app (via Federico Vittici).

The beta version of iCloud.com has a plain white interface with smaller icons, and rather than a Settings app, there's now an "Account Settings" section.


Most of the beta iCloud apps are identical to the ‌iCloud‌ apps available through the standard iCloud.com website, with Mail, Contacts, Photos, Notes, iCloud Drive, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Find Friends, and Find iPhone unchanged.


There is a new Reminders app on beta.iCloud.com though, which mirrors the iOS Reminders app and allows ‌iCloud‌ users to create, view, and manage their tasks.

The new version of iCloud.com will likely go live following the launch of ‌iOS 13‌ and Apple's other new software this fall.

I wish they would put iMessage in this so I can have iMessage on any computer I use.

So, an all white background AND smaller icons!

Thanks Apple, from those of us with bad vision we applaud this idiotic move.

I want third party iCloud apps.

Everything (pretty much) that you can do on an iPhone or a Mac you should be able to do in iCloud. Just login... and access your entire digital life.


iOS apps aren't WebKit apps. They're ObjC/C/C++/Swift/AppKit/UIKit applications.

Still no iMessages support. This isn't the 2000s anymore.

Hopefully this fixed the epic lag problems I've had with the site. Everything is super slow and sometimes it fails to open my mail/photos. The animations are also laggy. Does this on all my computers.

I don’t think they will ever do that. The end to end encryption of iMessage using a key stored only on your phone is a major selling point. Apple claims they don’t even have access to the key. Letting a web browser unencrypt iMessages would bust that wide open.

Glad they got rid of the bubbles. Poor performance.
