How significant are Apple’s changes to iCloud?
blackdog 6 weeks ago
Apple apparently announced that they are making changes to iCloud. I’m not an Apple user personally, but I’ve had to help out a friend of mine who is not at all tech savvy a few times, and when I had to deal with iCloud it seemed more like a second tier product. That’s not what I would have expected from Apple. Things that should be simple really weren’t. For example, I don’t understand why Apple couldn’t make it easy to transfer photos between devices on iCloud. That’s super basic, consumer level functionality, and should be a slam dunk. What kind of changes is Apple making to iCloud? Are they going to be enough for it to really be a competitive alternative to other cloud offerings?
