Apple is testing iOS-style banner notifications for the web version of iCloud. The tests came to light earlier this afternoon when several iCloud users reported seeing a test banner at the top of their iCloud interface.
Apple first adopted this style of banner notification as part of iOS 5’s Notification Center. The next major update to OS X, version 10.8 Mountain Lion, will be bringing the Notification Center – complete with banner notifications – to the Mac. Now it seems that Apple is exploring the possibility of bringing the same kind of banners to iCloud’s web portal, too. Whether it will also be getting its own Notification Center remains to be seen.
What do you think? Does the web version of iCloud need banner notifications? What about Notification Center? How often do you use iCloud’s web interface? Let us know in the comments.
