Mistake accidentally reveals iCloud.com notifications

updated 03:08 pm EDT, Tue May 8, 2012

Shows Apple attempting to improve site's usefulness

Apple has inadvertently revealed plans to bring banner notifications to iCloud.com, AppleInsider notes. Earlier on Tuesday, some visitors to the site saw an iOS-style banner at the top with a placeholder image and text. "Default Title for English," it read, with "English - This is test message description" underneath. Although clicking on the banner led nowhere, a small X allowed people to dismiss the message.

It's unclear what sort of notifications might be pushed to the iCloud website. These could conceivably be limited to the site's own small stable of apps, but it could also pull in notifications from Mac or iOS software. The next version of OS X, Mountain Lion, is slated to get its own Notification Center when it ships sometime this summer.

    Yes, you can turn it off completely

    It asks you if you want it off completely each time you log out and defaults to 'messaging on' just in case you change your mind
