iCloud.com has received a makeover with new icons and design inspired by iOS 7, after previously rolling out to beta customers back in August. The background wallpaper mirrors the dynamic, slowly changing wallpaper offered in iOS 7 as well.

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.

The apps -- with the exception of iWork -- have all received extensive redesigns as well, using lighter pastel colors and slimmer fonts.

I like how they use the dynamic wallpaper.

I don't use iCloud.com much, but I have friends who do. It's a nice little touch.

Apple, please implement the 2-factor authentication on iCloud.com as well!!!!!! :mad:

THIS! I have everything on iCloud, and it by far the least secure of all my services. Even worse, I have 2-factor on my Apple ID, icloud.com is the weakest link making that security worthless. It can't be THAT hard to implement.

With that said, the new interface is absolutely wonderful, it loads so much quicker and just feels so much smoother without all those textures slowing it down. I have been using it since the Beta launched. I can't install anything on my machine at work, so icloud.com just runs in a browser window all day. If only Apple would bring back iDisk...

That looks pretty nice, but we're still going to get people in the iOS forum claiming that releasing new iCloud apps is coming this week... :confused:

Find My iPhone looks really great on the big screen. Apple Maps and the iOS 7-devices look very cool on my Macbook Pro, can't wait for Mavericks :D

It changed just now while I was in the middle of using it. I don't normally use icloud.com, but my MBP is in for service again, and I'm using iCloud mail from a ChromeBook in the mean time. It's pretty slow (far slower than Gmail), but the ChromeBook is a bit slow with graphical things in general. And it's not slower than the previous icloud.com

I must be on my own, but I still find the design style of iOS7 to be off putting and unrefined. Not that I preferred the look in iOS6, I didn't - a change was most definitely necessary - I just think Apple missed the mark on this.

Now, if they could carry those designs to their OS X apps before Mavericks is officially released. Even their web apps is much better than the native ones in Mavericks.
