iCloud.com updated with iOS 7-like design

Apple has released a redesign of its iCloud web product, now featuring an iOS 7-like feel, on the eve of the mobile software's launch to the public. The new design brings a sleeker look and comes on the heels of Jonny Ive taking over Apple's design team in a push to rid of Scott Forstall-influenced design. 

Upon first launch of the new iCloud website you'll notice icons are taken from iOS 7 and plopped on your desktop or laptop display. Through iCloud.com you have access to your iCloud Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Reminders and Find My iPhone. Additionally, iCloud gives you access to beta versions of the newer Pages, Numbers and Keynote that were announced in June at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2013.

None of iCloud's core-functionality has been changed in the redesign - it's strictly cosmetic. Besides the iWork suite, each iCloud app has been retooled with new colours and a slimmer font. Apple began testing it in August and is now making it available just in time for the release of iOS 7 on Wednesday.
