Apple prepares iCloud upgrade with photo sharing features

by Kenny Hemphill on May 14, 2012

When Apple unveiled iCloud last summer and announced that it would replace MobileMe, much of the debate revolved around the MobileMe services which didn’t have a replacement in iCloud. One of those was the ability to post photographs online from iPhoto and Aperture.

That may be about to change. The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) reports that Apple ‘is preparing a big upgrade to its online service iCloud that includes new photo-sharing features.’ Some of those features, says Wired, will ‘resemble the photo-sharing app and service Instagram.’

Among other new iCloud features, according to the Journal, will be the ability to synchronise notes and reminders with iCloud.com. Also rumoured for inclusion at WWDC, according to The Guardian are iOS 6, ‘proprietary maps, Siri APIs for developers and a revamped App Store.
