The web version of iCloud Mail finally sees a visual update after being stuck on its iOS 7 look for the past few years.
With more features discovered in developer beta versions of iOS 15, macOS Monterey, and more, we’re also seeing tweaks and updates to some of Apple’s other services, with iCloud on the Web also getting benefits. ‘improvements.
For some reason, the iCloud Mail web UI got stuck looking the same as Mail in iOS 7, but there’s finally a visual refresh that can be tried right now.
What is iCloud on the web?
This is a feature that is rarely highlighted by Apple, but if you find yourself in a situation where you cannot access your email in the Mail app, you can visit icloud.com to access it instead.
It’s not just Mail that you can access, but Photos, Find My, and even the iWork suite of Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, which will have all of your documents ready to go.
However, this is one area of iCloud that has been left without a major update in recent years, with Apple instead focusing on iCloud on its devices. Recent improvements to iCloud + and Mail are a good example of this, with an even greater emphasis on privacy here.
Now, however, iCloud on the web is finally seeing a visual refresh, getting rid of leftover iOS 7 and updating it to be better aligned with Mail on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
How can I access the new iCloud Mail?
You just have to go to beta.icloud.com, sign in with your AppleID as usual, and after selecting Mail, you will see the new updated interface, ready to use.
While Apple hasn’t given a release date for this visual web refresh, it’s likely we’ll see it appear towards the end of the year once iOS 15, macOS 12 Monterey, and others. Updates announced during WWDC 2021 will be available to everyone.
