Those with non-Apple hardware can now use iWorks for iCloud. This is possible thanks to a new link, which allows users to create an Apple ID, regardless of their device.
Until now, users could only create a new Apple ID on Apple hardware, such as an iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Now, even those with a Windows- or Android-based device can register for an account.
To get started, simply visit beta.icloud.com from any browser and click on the link, “Create your free Apple ID and get started today,” located at the top of the screen. Once registered, users can log in to beta.icloud.com to access online versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. An account gives users on other platforms 1GB of free storage to save iWork documents on iCloud.
Online versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote were first unveiled during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in 2013.
Honestly, I didn’t know that you needed an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to create an Apple ID. It’s good to know that this restriction has finally been lifted.
