iCloud Website Updated: Notification Banners, Notes, and Reminders Included

Leading up to the release of iOS 6, Apple has pushed some new features to iCloud.com. The site was recently updated to include Reminders and Notes apps, as well as updates to Mail and Find My iPhone. The Reminders and Notes apps have familiar interfaces, and it goes without saying that everything within them is synced over iCloud. As expected, Apple has added the VIP inbox — an iOS 6 feature — to the Mail app. The Find My iPhone app has also been updated and it’s notable that Google Maps will continued to be used.

Tonight, 9to5Mac is reporting that Apple has pushed another update to the iCloud interface: notification banners much like those in iOS. These convenient banners will appear inside any iCloud app and will pop up for Mail, Calendar, Find my iPhone, and Reminders alerts. Now that iCloud is out of beta, these should be the last new features we see for a while. However, the continued use of Google Maps in Find My iPhone begs the question: Does Apple have a web version of their Maps interface planned?
