Apple has added the ability to upload images to its iCloud.com beta site for developers. The public site allows users to view, download, and delete their iCloud Photo Library images, but doesn’t currently allow uploading of photos to the library.
On the iCloud beta site, it’s now possible to upload JPGs, but the site does not currently accept other image and video formats like .PNG, .MOV, .MP4, and more. When a file is uploaded to the site, it syncs instantly to all of a user’s iOS devices, much like a photo taken on an iPhone or iPad or added to iCloud Photo Library via the iOS Photos app.
The appearance of the uploading tool on the developer beta site means the feature will likely make its way soon to the public site.
iCloud Photo Library was introduced with the debut of iOS 8.1, and is currently considered a “beta” service by Apple. The service is designed to store all the photos and videos that a user takes in iCloud, allowing access from all of the user’s Macs and iOS devices.
