With Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference just weeks away, expect
plenty of reports of new features to come crawling out of the woodwork.
In fact, here’s one from the Wall Street Journal
— they claim that Apple has been doing some major tinkering with their
iCloud storage service, the fruits of which will be unveiled on June 11.
First up is the ability for users to share and comment on each
other’s photos, a pretty dramatic shift away from iCloud’s current
approach to photo storage. As it stands, each user has a single Photo
Stream meant mostly to make sure images are on the devices they need to
be on. This shift in sharing actually sounds a little reminiscent of
Apple’s recently-killed MobileMe service, though how exactly the sharing
process would play out within iCloud is still up in the air.
Also reportedly onboard is new functionality that allows users to
sync their notes and reminders (though that was recently outed thanks to
a website snafu), as well as the ability to upload videos to the cloud service from an iDevice.
