Alright, so, if you are on your iPhone or iPad, you may want to use the Safari browser to access your iCloud. However, if you do not see the login option, you can access your icloud.com by requesting a desktop version of the website. Do the following:

  • Use the Menu Feature Request Desktop Site from your mobile browser:
    • For Safari, it is on the Share Menu
    • However, for Chrome, you find it in the Settings Menu
    • Likewise, for Firefox, you find it in the Share Menu
  • Tap and hold the Refresh symbol in the URL address bar. A quick menu appears with an option to Request Desktop Site.

Once complete, you ought to see a page that looks similar to the image above that prompts you to sign into iCloud. Lastly, enter your Apple iCloud login details. Voila!

Did you know? With iCloud, you can easily transfer photos from your iPhone to your Mac. Or, from your iPhone to a PC. And, even from iPhone to iPhone.
