Building on the recent iCloud news and rumors, The Wall Street Journal published a brief report that suggests Apple is preparing up to upgrade their cloud services and will announce the move at next month’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC). According to the report, one of the primary features of the new upgrade could be the introduction of a new photo-sharing feature:
The new features, expected to be announced at Apple’s world-wide developer conference beginning June 11, will allow iCloud users to share sets of photos with other iCloud users and to comment on them, these people said. Currently, users can only store one set of photos in iCloud through a feature called Photo Stream, which is designed to sync those photos to other Apple devices, not share them.
It’s also said that Apple could expand Photo Stream’s capabilities to includes support for video storage in the cloud. If accurate, while greatly improving the service, it seems as if it would be a necessity for customers to upgrade the capacity of their iCloud account to provide an adequate amount of storage.
Lastly, the report also states that Apple will introduce Notes and Reminders functionality to iCloud – as discerned from Apple’s beta portal discovered last Friday.
The new features and additions to Apple’s cloud services are expected to be revealed alongside iOS 6 next month, stay tuned for complete coverage on iCloud, iOS 6 and this year’s WWDC!
