iCloud is one of the most important platforms for Apple whose relevance has been increasing for some years. Many of the most important services are integrated into the Big Apple cloud and users often depend on the information stored and synchronized in it. To access the iCloud set of data and tools, Apple has a special website whose design has been renewed and is only in the Beta portal.
New tiles in the form of widgets for the new iCloud Beta design
iCloud services are accessible through the devices themselves from iOS and iPadOS Settings. They can also be accessed through the online website whose functionalities have been limited over time. The iCloud.com website allows the user to access email, shared or synchronized images, the entire Apple office suite and other services directly from the web.
However, the design of this portal was updated many years ago with the arrival of iOS 7 and iOS 8 and since then few new features have arrived. That is why Apple has designed a new portal more akin to the current interfaces of iOS 16, iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura that is available in beta format. All users can access via the beta.icloud.com link and sign in with iCloud credentials.

The most important thing about this new design is the tile format. This new type of interface allows you to display a large amount of information at a glance. For example, accessing the latest documents from Files, the latest images uploaded from Photos, and so on. We can add new information tiles at the top right by clicking on the ‘+’ icon.
To access the rest of the information, in the same toolbar, we can click on the icon with six squares to access the rest of the services available in our account, including iCloud+ services in case we have an active subscription.
Finally, Apple has redesigned the data recovery system, as well as the information of our subscriptions within the service. This information is at the bottom of the screen. If you want to try this new design that is likely to be officially released in the coming months, just go to beta.icloud.com and give it a try.
