I keep trying to log in to iCloud via Safari on my iPad2 and i get this https://www.icloud.com/ipad_welcome/ telling me to set up the device. It is set up....as far as I know and I've checked that iCloud is turned on and all the switches are turned on. All seems correct, but keeps telling me to set it up. I can get into it on my iMac no problem.



Suggestions?

What it is trying to tell you is that for iOS devices, you need to use the built in apps to access iCloud.

Where this falls flat is if you want to let a friend check their iCloud email quickly on your iPad.

Okay, thanks. I wonder how it will work then when they introduce iWork in iCloud as a web app?

use another browser, such as Atomic, where you can specify a different client ID to fool the website into thinking you're not accessing it from an iPad?
