In support of the newly released  iOS 6 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Apple has given its cloud service, iCloud, a design makeover, with addition of the Notes and Reminders web applications. Though iCloud is of course on all iOS devices, iCloud members can also access their account on the Internet, at—signing in with their Apple ID.

The online iCloud site also includes the Find My iPhone app which users will most likely use when their iPhone or other iOS device is lost or stolen. From the online site, users will need to provide their password to access the location of their enabled device(s). The iOS 6 update will include a Lost Mode feature for the Find My iPhone app, which will display your assigned contact number on your device when you send out a message indicating it’s lost.

The online iCloud is much more responsive and faster to navigate than previous versions. The Mail app also includes the new VIP feature found in Mountain Lion, as well as the ability to create Mail rules and set an Auto-response message. The Contacts (formally called Address) and Calendar (formally, iCal) apps share the same UI across all platforms.

iWork users can also sync and access all their Pages, Numbers, and Keynote documents through the online site. However, editing cannot be done online. All documents will need to be downloaded to the respective device.

The cloud icon on the top-left side of the screen conveniently takes users back to the main iCloud home screen.

    Adding notes to iCloud is a good thing, except that the 6.0 upgrade deleted off 90% of my existing notes. That was sure helpful. Arrrrgh!

      Now that's scary, because you kinda rely on the cloud to keep your documents and notes. Thanks for letting us know this, Jim. Sorry to hear what happened.

      Hmm, I'm not familiar with iCloud in Windows. Hope one of our readers can answer that.

      I've never tried the jailbreak. It's something I must do at least once.

    What happened to the shared reminders functionality in iCloud and iOS 6? It appears to have been removed (was in icloud calendar).

    --- For those who really need the maps feature, upgrading seems to be a bad idea. --- However there are alternatives, and you can still use the browser version, I guess. --- I'll now go and hug my nexus.
