Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s rollout of enriched iCloud services went a notch higher when the company activated a feature that allows users to upload photos, AppleInsider reported in an article. The feature was activated on the iCloud.com site that is currently under test by the public. The beta site appears to promise more and better features than the standard iCloud.com. Photo synchronization is important for users, especially the developers.
For the tech giants, there is no taking of chances. Things have to be done in a manner that makes the whole cloud project a wonderful experience for users. That explains why Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is taking calculated steps in the development of a better iCloud.com platform. The ability to upload photos to the iCloud Photos Library was lacking in the standard iCloud website and activating it in the new site is refreshing.
With the “Upload” feature, users can add photos on their Mac and iOS devices to the iCloud. The photos uploaded to the iCloud Photo Library can also be accessed through iPhone, iPad and Mac devices. Additionally, the photos can also be shared through iCloud Photo Sharing in case you want to grant access to them to other users.
Users seeking to take advantage of the new image upload feature must first be registered with iCloud.com beta program. The iCloud.com beta site currently supports just certain image formats. For example, it is currently possible to upload JPGs image formats to the beta site, while such formats as .MOV, .PNG and .MP4 are not currently accepted. However, available image formats are expected to expand with time.
The addition of the uploading feature comes hot on the heels of the release of a public version of the beta site by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Also, it comes at a time when a malware targeting Apple devices was uncovered in China. The malware is known as WireLurker. It is reported that it may have impacted nearly 350,000 users on the iOS and Mac platforms.
