There are a lot of things Apple needs to do with their iCloud services to keep them at least on the same level as what competitors offer. I'll list my wish list for iCloud updates at WWDC, chime in with any of your own!

iCloud Drive:
It has to get sharing functions (think a public link) and you need to be able to view thumbnails of images (and other document types) at This is one of the few times that I honestly have to ask how it even got released like this? And they also kind of "have to" release an iCloud Drive app.

Better management of images at The ability to delete albums, for example.

Better synching between devices. For example I can delete iMessages all day long on my iPhone, but they all still populate in the Messages app on my MacBook Pro as soon as I turn it on. This gets really annoying when you go on a week-long trip and forget to disable it on your Mac before you leave. It sits there and populates every text you got that entire time - no matter what you deleted on your iPhone days before.

I've switched all of my services over to iCloud (even dumped my beloved Gmail address in exchange for iCloud Mail) but I can't use iCloud Drive yet for the reasons listed above. It's simply not there yet. I'm crossing my fingers for big updates at WWDC.

Bug fixes: For example Messages and Notes don't always sync perfectly between devices. (Though they're a lot better now I have a more up to date Mac).

Higher iCloud documents storage tiers: 10GB free, at least. Also, give us a separate 10GB for our Photo Library. Let us upload music to iCloud Drive rather than paying for iTunes Match annually.

Give us a way of managing all our cloud based stuff. In Settings on an iOS device, System Preferences on a Mac and on - let us see everything stored in iCloud with ability to delete certain things. For example, app data sometimes remains even if you delete the app. This would look a bit like Apple Menu > About This Mac... > Storage.

This would solve my personal iCloud annoyances.

iCloud iDrive needs serious improvement. I hate how in iWork e.g. Pages, you can't create subfolders or deeper when arranging documents. Also there needs to be some type of iDrive app on the iPhone similar to dropbox.
