Apple’s iWork for iCloud beta has been available to developers for over a month – but according to 9to5Mac, Apple is now inviting non-developers to begin testing the new cloud-based document editing suite as well. Emails intercepted by 9to5Mac reveal that users are being asked to test out the new service and provide feedback to Apple on its functionality.
From the user email (via 9to5Mac):
We’d like to invite you to be one of the first to try it, so we’re giving you early access to the iWork for iCloud beta. All you have to do is sign in to iCloud on a Mac or a PC using the current version of Safari, Chrome or Internet Explorer. Then just click on Pages, Numbers, or Keynote and you’re off.
To test the service, invited users only need to log into the icloud.com web portal (not beta.icloud.com, which developers must use to test the feature), and the new icons will appear automatically. Expanding testing to non-developers could be a strong sign that Apple is making the final preparations before unleashing the software on the general public in the near future.
