    So I lost my phone (Apple product), and it's offline.
    I will never get it back. The only Apple product I have now is my Macbook Air.
    I cannot access those photos and videos they say I have stored on iCloud.
    I can only access my email through iCloud.com, but not photos.
    So I downloaded the iCloud app for Windows, and still nothing!
    I am currently updating my Mac system to see if it will work on there.
    It said something about "you need to have this update" to access your photos.

    It's a big update, so in the meantime I am asking this question. What do I do?
    And if I delete my entire iCloud account, will that delete the files they say I have?
    Can you even delete the account, or is that a bad idea?
    Can I get a new iPhone and then get access to the photos?

    Deleting the account will delete the photos, they are part of the account. You can get your photos on a iOS device (phone/tablet/iPod) or you can use iPhoto or Photos on a Mac.
