Apple to announce iCloud photo sharing at WWDC, report says

updated 02:49 pm EDT, Mon May 14, 2012 email to continue after MobileMe's end

Apple will announce several new iCloud feature upgrades at June's WWDC, claim sources for the Wall Street Journal. One of the highlights is expected to be photo sharing. While users can currently sync photos via Photo Stream, these are only accessible under the same Apple ID. The sharing feature would not only allow people to make photosets public, but to make comments on others' collections.

The report adds that iCloud should also get personal video syncing, and that Notes and Reminders icons seen on will turn into full-fledged apps. These are expected to sync with their counterparts elsewhere in iOS and OS X.

Apple has meanwhile updated its MobileMe transition guide to let people know emails will still be valid after MobileMe itself becomes defunct. "As of May 1, you can choose to keep using your mail after MobileMe ends, even on devices that don't meet the iCloud system requirements," the company writes. "Just go to and select the option to keep using your email after MobileMe ends. Once you have completed this short process, your mail will continue to work on devices that don't meet the iCloud requirements after MobileMe ends on June 30th, 2012."

iCloud requires iOS 5 on handhelds, Windows 7 or Vista SP2 on PCs, and OS X 10.7.2 or better on Macs. This excludes a number of devices, even though iCloud is an Internet service.

    Funny observation

    There is more backwards-compatibility for Windows than there is for OS X.
