Apple's desktop website for iCloud is available to anyone with a web browser, and it has gone through multiple overhauls over the years. The latest version, currently in beta, has an all-new interface with app widgets and a customizable interface.

When a user logs in to the new website for the first time, they are greeted with a set of basic widgets that show information about their iCloud profile, Apple Mail, Photos, and iCloud Drive. A large button at the bottom lets the user add, remove, or rearrange widgets based on other iCloud services like Notes or iWork.

Clicking on a widget will take the user to the respective app's web app. The page with widgets is called the iCloud Home Page and can be reached at any time from the app menu or by tapping the Apple logo in the top left corner.

The new design can be viewed from The beta is open to anyone with an Apple ID.

    Only the home page etc. appears to have changed. None of the tools are any different (Mail, Calendar etc). Mail still has lots of problems that came with the lsat overhaul. Still no dark mode.

    Interesting.  Not super useful unless Apple opens iCloud for hosted web apps that could do more functional things on the dashboard.  I've almost given up hope on that front though.

    Apple is late to the Web app party, but it is still in beta. 
    We eagerly await what Apple design ability late… Will bring.
    (The Web app is free, so if nothing else, this shows they have their priorities in line.)
