    Is it the same. Also what is the keychain password thing about?

    password keychain thing is to save your passwords in the cloud under safari... so you don't have to reenter them whenever using safari.

    the icloud drive currently works like dropbox under windows, osx yosemite and icloud.com... but on the iphone nothing changed so far since the app is missing.

    iCloud only let you share files between the same app on different devices. iCloud Drive lets you share files between different apps.

    Sorry to derail the thread but, how do I get iCloud Drive to work? More specificially, how do I get the document picker screen up?

    As I understand it, there is a window which allows me to see the documents inside other apps? So far the only apps I own which support this are Pages, Keynotes and Numbers. I have seen screenshots of Pages with an iCloud Drive window, but I cannot find any way of opening this myself.

    Also, is there anyway to open the iCloud Drive document picker in mail so I can attach files? That seems like the perfect use for iCloud drive.

    I turned off the iCloud drive. It seems pointless

    The document picker only shows up when you are in a supported app. But at this point, based on my experience and feedback I've seen, even Apple's own iWorks suite (Pages, etc.) doesn't support this fully.
