This week the launch of iOS 8 has taken place, and with it one of the most interesting Apple services of recent months: iCloud Drive. It may sound like a rough copy of Dropbox, but the truth is that in Cupertino they have come up with some very useful ideas such as the ability to edit documents by jumping from device to device. Start typing on your computer, get up from the chair and take your iPad and the document will be there, ready to be continued. However, if you plan to test this functionality you will be surprised to discover that you cannot use it yet in OS X.
Waiting for Yosemite
And is that OS X Yosemite will be the version that brings the integrated iCloud Drive functionalities; Meanwhile, the version of iCloud for Windows has already been updated and allows you to use the new features. It is ironic that one of the most outstanding novelties by Apple itself in the Yosemite presentation ends up first in the competition system, but at least we will not have to wait long to use it on Mac. As we already know, it is expected that the next 21 October OS X Yosemite is released, so there is only one more month left.
Updating iCloud for Windows will create a folder in Favorites that will be synchronized automatically and from which we can edit, copy and paste our files. It’s tempting to say that Windows users have the best Apple experience right now, but nothing is further from the truth: iCloud for Windows still lacks basic features like Find My iPhone.
