A Wall Street Journal report suggests Tim Cook’s company is about to take the wraps off a refreshed iCloud service at this year’s WWDC, which will place more emphasis on the social aspect of storing images. The new and improved service will allow images and photos to be shared, while also offering the ability for users to comment.
In addition, users could also be given the opportunity to sync video to iCloud, and the WSJ certainly seems confident the features will be showcased at this year’s world-wide developer conference, which commences on June 11.
At this point in time, an iCloud feature called Photo Stream allows users to store a set of photos, but there is no current sharing infrastructure in place for those with an incessant need to share everything. While it’s hard to mention any upcoming image-sharing service without referencing Instagram, it’s unlikely Apple’s changes will cause Facebook’s recent billion dollar acquisition too much grief – at least not initially – due to Instagram’s reach and range of features and filters.
