Apple To Revamp iCloud With Photo-Sharing App

As Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference fast approaches, tech writers are doing their best to pitch their predictions about the company's plans. Lately, many rumours tend to speculate around the same topic: iCloud enhancements, which Apple is expected to announce at the event.

The latest hearsay is connected to the possible addition of a photo-sharing app. iCloud might become more supportive for the users' online social activities.

iCloud users will now be able to share photos with their friends, who in turn can access or download the pictures - as well as the inclusion of a special feature that will allow iCloud subscribers to comment on their friends' photos.

This Photo Stream will only be open for the users' friends, in order to avoid prying eyes. Previous reports suggested iCloud might also gain new Reminder and Notes features.

Apple itself has encouraged the rumours by accidentally leaving clues on the iCloud website . A week ago, some lucky users happened to notice a Notification banner similar with the iOS feature. Hours after the news surfaced, Apple removed the banner.
