While it’s not a wild stretch of the imagination in terms of added functionality, this could be useful.
The beta.icloud.com web site has been sporadically available today and seems to suggest that Apple is looking to add Notes and Reminders to iCloud’s syncing services.
The change was discovered by developer Steve Troughton-Smith and another space was also included in the beta site for iCloud for another service, though the image link was broken and did not display. It’s unclear whether the website was a beta for iCloud before it launched last year, or if it was a test for a forthcoming update to the service.
However, the beta site for iCloud was not functional as of Friday, as attempts to sign in to the page were not successful. The site has since been pulled offline, and forwards to Apple’s overview page for the iCloud service.
The beta site is the second unintentional iCloud-related leak from Apple this week. On Tuesday, the regular iCloud.com site showed a test banner notification to users, suggesting that feature is also in the works for the iCloud website.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
