iCloud.com Beta Gets iOS 7-Inspired Makeover




The iCloud.com beta page has received a makeover with new icons from iOS 7.

The site is using new icons for Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Reminders and Find My iPhone; while iWork for iCloud is still using the older-style iWork for iOS icons.

Apple has been sending iWork for iCloud beta invites to a number of users recently, as it expands its beta testing ahead of a fall launch for the product.

Thanks Jeremiah!

Please don't let that theme spread to OS X

Definitely like the change as well. All that's left for a makeover is OSX....

Wow looks even better on the web than on the device. I have to say it looks amazing, even with the animated background.

I'd welcome it. The two systems should mirror each other for the ease of the user experience. Whether a person likes the new look or not is another matter

Weird that iWork beta icons are not iOS 7ish, but i guess thats because its still a secret.

Any idea if they plan on remaking the icons for their apps? (iWork, iLife, iBooks and such).

Fantastic! Nice to some unity spreading between iOS and OS X. I can't begin to imagine how nice this theme will look on a retina Mac.

I'm sure, cosmetically is different, but I doubt there is any functionality hidden.

Am I the only one? Ive always hated the Pages, Keynote, Numbers icons. Especially now they don't fit the style at all of iOS7.

It looks new. Not sure if it's necessary better.

More than just the Splash

I would just like to point out that the changes are more than just the splash page and icons. Each of the web apps has been updated, as well. Aside from the iWork apps.

I wonder if the web apps themselves have received a makeover, mail especially used to have a horrible UI

Horrible and inconsistent. I used to look up to Apple's design quality and consistency, sad to see this mess going on. I seriously hope they don't go down this road in future versions of OSX, but at least that's customisable.

It will be nice once iOS, OS X and applications are unified design wise. Those iWork icons look like an eye sore next to the iOS 7 style icons. I'm sure it will happen over time. I wonder if we'll see new designs for find my friend and iTunes U when iOS 7 goes live.
