Apple Updates With Improved Mobile Support

Posted on February 5, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Apple, Mobile with 5 Comments

Apple has been lately working to improve iCloud on the web. Back in July of last year, the company updated to allow users to login to their iCloud account using Face ID, for example.

It’s now making some more changes to to improve the experience for mobile users. Apple has rolled out a new and improved experience that upgrades the experience for both iPhone and Android users.

The new update was first spotted by News Landed, but there is a small catch. The updated app does not actually include support for all the different iCloud services. For now, users are only limited to Photos, Notes, Reminders, and Find iPhone.

Still, the updated app introduces a significantly improved experience for apps like Photos and Reminders. You can view your photos as you would expect, but there’s also an option to upload photos, which might be useful for those on Android. The Reminders app has also been updated to offer the modern experience as seen on iOS 13, and once again it might be useful for those who have both an Android phone and an iPhone.

    Hopefully this is a baby step toward Apple bringing all of their services cross platform... including iMessage?

    Ummmm why would a iPhone user go to safari on the iPhone to use icloud apps vs using the native apps that are on the same phone?????

      In reply to Stooks:

      iOS devices do not support multiple user profiles so this helps in any situation where you want to pull up your material on a device where you're not the primary user. Probably less common on an iPhone since you're likely to have your own device at hand, but an iPad is often a shared device.

    I regularly use iCloud, Google Drive, and OneDrive for business, or whatever they call it nowadays, and iCloud is the worst by far. Those I know who are all-in on Apple stuff seem to utilize Drive or OneDrive mostly.

    I just wanna use iMessage on my Windows PC. Currently the only app that works on every platform that I use is FB messeger. Works on IOS, Windows and Apple Watch.
