Apple launches new beta version of its iCloud web portal

Apple today debuted a new beta version of the iCloud.com website with a new look. The new design primarily uses a black and white theme which is in stark contrast to the previous theme which used an array of colors.

The beta, available through beta.icloud.com, was first pointed out by Federico Viticci on Twitter. Among the new group of icons is an overhauled Reminders app, which is set to debut with iOS 13 and macOS Catalina. Due dates and locations set in the iOS 13 Reminders app will be displayed, but can't be changed, and when creating a new reminder, you can enter text but can't set any dates, locations, or alerts.

The change ditches the bubble-filled blue backdrop the iCloud web portal had before. The beta version is, however, still seen with the old "Find my iPhone" option instead of "Find My" app.

The web version of iCloud has long felt overlooked by Apple, so it's nice to see it finally receive some attention.

The other beta iCloud apps will look familiar to those who use the current website.

Most of the iCloud apps on the beta site are identical to the iCloud apps found on the standard iCloud website, with Mail, Contacts, Photos, Notes, iCloud Drive, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Find Friends, and Find iPhone unchanged. Three iPhones are expected this year as well along with a cheaper HomePod and a new version of Apple Watch.
