iCloud Photos beta is updated to support the Touch Bar and more ...


Little by little we are seeing the updates of all Mac applications to become compatible with Apple's new Touch Bar and in this case it is the iCloud Photos web service. These news regarding the update they are not available to all users today, it is a beta version that we found in beta.icloud.com.

But leaving aside the official availability that we do not think is too late, the changes are outstanding and we have to be clear that It is a service that still has a lot of room for improvement compared to other similar services

In this update we find interesting details implemented such as compatibility with the Touch Bar of the new MacBook Pro or the new sidebar with which we can see and access all the photos quickly and productively thanks to the order in which they are saved similar to that of the Photos apps for iOS and macOS. In addition, bug fixes and general performance improvements are added.

The new beta version of iCloud Photos continues to polish details that are missing in the previous version but still does not seem to work at all well in the Touch Bar, something that we have not been able to experience personally since we do not have one of these Mac, but from what they tell us in MacMagazine it has some bugs. The good thing is that Apple is putting the batteries with all the tools for the new Macs and also is rushing to add small changes and novelties.

The iCloud Photo Library organizes your photos and videos by Moments, Collections and Years on all your devices, and even on the web. You can bookmark, create albums, and organize photos however you want. And now Photos lets you turn the best images in your collection into Memories to make them truly unforgettable.

Many users still think that more features could be implemented in the iCloud Photo Library of the "retouch or enhancement" type for photos, but this is something that has not yet arrived in this service.
