Apple is in the middle of one of its busiest weeks in recent memory. It’s releasing multiple major software updates, including iOS 5, and it’s launching a major sync and storage service. Oh, and it has to deliver a million iPhone 4S orders by Friday.

Apple kickstarted the festivities yesterday afternoon by rolling out iTunes 10.5. Now the company has moved on to iCloud, giving the service’s website a noticeable update. Along with a new login screen (above), iCloud.com also lost its ‘beta’ status… 

For those who aren’t familiar, iCloud.com is the web portal for Apple’s new iCloud service. This enables you to access iCloud-synced information like contacts, calendar, and even email from a web browser anywhere in the world.

Though the website has been updated, and is no longer marked as beta, it may still not work for folks on non-developer accounts. iCloud itself has not gone live to the public yet, so there’s a good chance that the website is the same way.

Things are definitely getting interesting, though. First iTunes, now iCloud.com, and iOS 5 should be released sometime this afternoon. Make sure to keep checking back with us throughout the day for the latest updates on Apple’s releases.

    is already working for me now (in Israel)

  • DIno

    Cody, I never had a mobileme account. But can I still use icloud though?

    • You bet! iCloud is free for everyone with an Apple (iTunes) account.

      • Josh

        Only 5GB though. Which really isn’t much but it’s something.

      • aserettt

        it asks me to move my mobile me account to cloud tho – and i dont have a mobile me account (i have a 3GS)

      • Mark

        I still have my 3gs until the 4s shows – do you know iClouds features are for 3gs as well? Does find my phone even work for 3gs anymore?

      • DIno

        okay thanks. Cos I tried to log in just now but I guess it wasn’t ready yet for non dev’s.

  • Gabriel

    So it’s not live then……..so much fanfare for nothing.

    • Actually, some non-developer folks have been able to sign in. If nothing else, Find my iPhone should work.

  • I’m not fussed on I cloud I don’t like the thought of my personel stuff somewhere else other than my phone I don’t back up contacts and personel info with I tunes or any other medium

  • Joey Johari

    I’m able to sign in….but can’t do much….have to upate to IOS5……can’t wait…..!!!!

  • Frank

    testing it now, so cool!

  • John

    redirects to unavailable (UK)

    • Frank

      I’m in the UK as well but it is working for me.

  • Josh

    Also note that opening the page on the iPhone gives you the option to install Find my Friends, though the installation doesn’t work just yet.

  • Jano

    iCloud worked for me since monday when it was still beta, and I’m not a dev. With all services 🙂

  • Mark

    To see Apple already stumbling whole doing a roll out shows how effected they are without Steve Jobs.

    -Find my iPhone (not allowing me to sign up) takes you to download the app and the instructions say to set up a username and pass in ‘MobileMe’ (SJ would never have allowed this oversight)

    -Set up iCloud is linked to a Page Not Found error for most

    -Install Find my Friends attempts to go to the App Store and a popup says – Your request Could Not Be Completed

    Seems to me that a lot of people over in Cupertino were ready to goof off when SJ passed away and we are paying for it now. Welcome to the Future of Apple!

    • Andrew

      Go play with your android

      • Mark

        The only Android I have is my dusty Google Tv – wipe the muck from your eyes and you will see I am right. What did I say that is untrue? BTW – I have a 4s on the way from AT&T, meanwhile my neighbor got his yesterday direct from Apple – I don’t bash everything, just the truths.

        Also – don’t be a tough guy online

  • Jen

    Im in the UK and not working for me, when I try to go to set-up it directs to page not found…anyone else also got problem in UK apart from john.

    • John

      working fine for me know, still says unavailable in firefox but opens and is synced through ie

  • dk

    I get the following message “This account is not yet eligible.” when I try to move my MobileMe account to iCloud.

  • heshammd

    expected release of ios 5

  • Eric

    Not *quite* working for me yet in the U.S. (Colorado) — the website comes up just fine, but tells me I need to set up my account via iOS 5 (which iTunes hasn’t yet pushed).

    • TechSavy101

      SameHere(Illinois)

  • TechSavy101

    U.S still nothing, but supa excited oh yeah iOS 5!!

  • bluedun

    Anyone been able to transition their MobileMe account yet (in the US)? I’m still getting a link to do so, but then it immediately tells me that my MobileMe account isn’t eligible and that I need to be a developer.

  • Kp

    Icloud.com is live and working. I just uploaded some contacts to it from my laptop.

  • bluedun

    Nope, still getting the “Your account is not yet eligible” screen, which indicates I need to be a developer to move my MobileMe account to iCloud.

  • bluedun

    Is accessing the iCloud service dependent on operating system? For instance, I’m trying to transition on a PC running Windows 7…
