Apple on Thursday updated the beta version of its iCloud web portal, bringing a new background and revamped Reminders app to the site.

The new beta site, first noticed by Federico Viticci, drops the bubbly blue backdrop of its predecessor and replaces it with a stark white background.

A user's profile image and name is displayed squarely in the center of the screen above a row different web app options.

Apple's web-based iCloud portal is a useful tool for Apple users. They can access their iCloud email, Notes, Reminders, Calendar, Photos, Files, as well as find their devices and friends. Users are also able to manage their account settings from the web interface.
