What you need to know
- Apple has been working to update native support for iCloud.com on mobile browsers.
- It means you can now access the site on both iOS and Android.
- It's not the full experience, just Photos, Notes, Reminders and Find my iPhone.
Apple has been working to update native support for iCloud.com so that users can now access the site on mobile browsers for both iOS and Android.
As reported by News Landed, users on both iOS and Android can now log in to iCloud.com on their mobile browsers, where they will be greeted by native support, rather than being forced to switch to the desktop site.
The four features available are Photos, Notes, Reminders and Find my iPhone. According to the report, there are some teething problems, such as syncing on notes between iOS/macOS and iCloud.com on a mobile browser. Over on Chrome, some of the features on Notes aren't working just yet. Photos (except the upload feature) and Reminders both seem to be working, as is Find my iPhone.
Regarding the upload feature specifically, this does not seem to be working on Chrome for Android:
The most impressive feature, however, is not working. The Photos app shows the option to upload photos, but whenever I try uploading it from Chrome for Android, I get an error message and the photo doesn't appear in the library. Uploading photos directly to iCloud Photo Library on Chrome for Android would've been the best part of using iCloud.com for Android, but sadly it isn't working.
Users can view their entire iCloud library however, delete photos, like photos, add to albums and download, as well as sharing links. You can also now view live photos on Android. Given this is all new and likely a work-in-progress, expect fixes to the aforementioned troubles coming soon.
You can also access iCloud account settings within the browser now, with external links for Apple ID, language and formats.
Whilst there are some reported teething problems with Chrome for Android, the report states that Samsung Internet and Firefox both work well. Obvious omissions include Contacts and Calendar, but for now, it's a start!
Given that iCloud has been out for nearly 10 years, this is probably something Apple should have looked into sooner... but better late than never!
Is the Pixel 4a worth an upgrade from the Pixel 3a?
The Pixel 4a is a clear upgrade over the 3a, but the question you have to ask first is whether your 3a is in need of an upgrade in the first place.
Google confirms Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are coming, but with few details
Google has confirmed it will have two more Pixels to launch in 2020, and they'll both have 5G. The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will come later to complement the standard Pixel 4a, and while we have a decent idea of what they'll be like through leaks, Google isn't spilling details.
Google Pixel 4a review: The best camera under $400 is a perfect 2020 phone
It turns out Google's "less is more" approach really fits well within the constraints of a less-expensive phone, and its strengths in software and camera processing stand out against less-refined competition. The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
Keep your Google Pixel 4a screen pristine with a screen protector!
Your screen is quite possibly the most important thing on your phone; without it, you can't interact with your apps or answer calls. These are the films and tempered glass screen protectors to keep your Pixel 4'a screen safe.
