After a beta testing period in early December, Apple has unveiled a new look for the iCloud Photos app.

Just login to your account on to see the new design. It looks very similar to the Photos app in macOS Sierra and features a sidebar that makes it easier to browse different albums. That can be hidden if you’d like.

There are a number of different action buttons on the top toolbar including upload a photo, add to an album, share, download an image, and delete.

The interface is still missing some features found on the Mac and iOS versions including Memories and Faces.

Through the iCloud version, users can see their iCloud Photos library that includes every photo and video taken.

A number of different services are available through the web portal including mail, contacts, calendar, iCloud Drive, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Find my iPhone, and others. It’s available to anyone with an Apple ID for free.
