I was recently asked by a long-time iPhone user how she could see her photos outside the Apple Photos app on her phone. I realized that there are a lot of people just like my friend. They live their online lives almost exclusively on their mobile devices and never know that there is a way to see some or all of their iCloud usage in one place via a browser.

How to access iCloud in a browser

Getting to iCloud in a browser is simple. Just open Safari, browse to https://icloud.com and log in using your Apple id information. You can log into icloud.com using any Apple or Windows browser. Safari is recommended on Apple products.

What can I access in iCloud in a browser?

How much of your iCloud usage you can see depends upon what device you are using. When you access iCloud in a browser on an iPhone, you can access:

  • Notes
  • Photos
  • Find My iPhone

If you were to have problem connecting to your photos through the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad, try logging into iCloud in Safari, then tap the Photos icon.
