Apple Announcing iCloud Photo Sharing and Video Sync at WWDC 2012

WWDC is next month and Apple is expected to announce some new software and hardware. Included in the software announcement is a possible native Instagram-like feature in iCloud with iOS 6

A new report out from the Wall Street Journal suggests Apple is making some big changes to iCloud. A new photo sharing feature will be announced a WWDC allowing users to share photos and comment on them. Also to be added is video sync with iCloud.

WSJ reports:

The new features, expected to be announced at Apple’s world-wide developer conference beginning June 11, will allow iCloud users to share sets of photos with other iCloud users and to comment on them, these people said. Currently, users can only store one set of photos in iCloud through a feature called Photo Stream, which is designed to sync those photos to other Apple devices, not share them.

Apple is also working on a new feature that will allow iCloud users to sync their personal videos via iCloud, these people said, as well as allow users to access “Notes” and “Reminders”—two of its apps for jotting down quick thoughts—through iCloud.com. Currently, those items have to be accessed via apps for those features.

Could this be the reason why Phill Schiller quit Instagram? Was Apple in the works creating their own photo sharing network? Like we told you last week, WSJ also notes the new iCloud Notes and Reminders apps we discovered on the iCloud beta site.
