  • iCloud.com gets a redesign

    Apple gave us a glimpse of its iCloud.com redesign last month, and now the redesign is officially available to everybody.

  • There Should Be an iCloud Keychain App

    Michael Tsai: Bradley Chambers: The problem with managing passwords on iOS and macOS at the moment is the functions are scattered around.

  • Operations of Apple’s iCloud services in China are about to be transferred to a company in Guizhou

    TechNode reported that operations of Apple’s iCloud services in China are about to be transferred to a company in Guizhou. In November, Apple has been accused of relying on students working illegal overtime to build the iPhone X, through Foxconn, which manufactures the devices in Zhengzhou.

  • Benefits of iCloud in China

    Manton Reece wrote about the Dropbox, iCloud, and GitHub on the iPad. The trend to new iCloud-first apps like Ulysses and Bear is fine. It doesn’t appeal to me, though.

  • Mailbox app now supports iCloud and Yahoo Mail

    iCloud: My Photo Stream and iCloud Photo Sharing limits There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload to My Photo Stream over time, but iCloud limits the number of photos that can be uploaded within a given hour, day, or month to prevent unintended or excessive use. Seems like Apple is […]

  • Overview of iCloud Keychain

    Jon Brodkin gives a good overview of iCloud Keychain. It is a very good read to understand the function, and limitations, of iCloud Keychain. However, Brodkin needs to manage his expectations. You get what you paid for. But in almost every other way, iCloud Keychain falls short of the functionality one expects from a paid […]
