Error on iCloud Site Points Toward Upcoming iCloud Bookmarks Feature
An error on Apple’s iCloud.com portal is displaying a “Coming Soon” page for the iCloud Bookmarks, suggesting that the website may soon gain functionality for displaying iCloud Bookmarks saved in Safari on a Mac or an iOS device. An online iCloud Bookmarks section, if added to iCloud, could be useful for users that wish to access their bookmarks on a computer that isn’t used regularly. Although iCloud already syncs Safari bookmarks between Macs and iOS devices, iCloud bookmarks aren’t currently accessible via iCloud.com.
Originally discovered by a Twitter user, the iCloud Bookmarks page can be seen briefly when visiting a specific URL, originally accessed by installing the Chrome extension from the iCloud Control Panel for Windows app on a PC.
Although the page text suggests that an iCloud Bookmarks feature could be in the works for iCloud.com, it is possible based on the “extension” URL, that it is referring to an iCloud Bookmarks extension but iCloud browser extensions for both Chrome and Firefox on Windows have been available for several months following the launch of iOS 7.
As noted by the folks over at 9to5Mac
, the introductory screen also features the iOS 7-style design for Bookmarks, which seems to indicate that it was created rather recently, pointing more towards a new feature than an old page for an existing feature. For those of you who didn’t already know, Apple appears to be hard at work beefing up iCloud during the last year. At WWDC, the company introduced iWork for iCloud, giving users a way to work on collaborative documents from any device and more recently many of the apps received a full iOS 7-style redesign.
Are any of you excited about the upcoming feature?
