Apple now lets you access some iCloud services on Android
Apple has at last improved the experience iCloud customers face when accessing the service through a web browser on a mobile device – and this includes letting us access iCloud using an Android device.
Now goes mobile
iCloud users have always been able to access the service through a web browser, where you can access service features and control some of its settings, including some obscure ones you won’t find elsewhere for some weird reason.
However, until now, when you tried to access iCloud from a mobile device you’d be directed to a page which told you, you were unable to do so (though you might be able to using the Desktop version of the site) – and this has changed.
Photos, Notes, Reminders, and Find iPhone
iCloud.com is now better realised on mobile devices, which means you can access the some of the most popular features (Photos, Notes, Reminders, and Find iPhone) of the service using Safari on your iPhone, or a browser on an Android device.
One of the biggest benefits of this is that you can now use your friend’s Android to access Find my iPhone if it gets lost or stolen and an Android device happens to be close to hand.
