iCloud Drive, the cloud storage service announced by Apple at WWDC, looks like a Dropbox killer in its ability to share files across devices and platforms. The company had officially announced that it would work on iOS, OS X and (surprisingly) Windows, but according to a snippet discovered in the third iOS 8 beta by 9to5Mac, it looks as if you’ll be able to access your files from iCloud.com as well. If you were hoping web access means iCloud Drive would get some form of Android support, unfortunately, Apple will first need to change its current policy, as most browsers on Android can’t access iCloud.com. Still, coupled with last week’s news that iCloud is getting two-factor authentication, it does look as if Apple is beefing up its web services — a historic weak point for the giant from Cupertino.

It would also need to sell a new player some of its spectrum and other assets, and offer wholesale 4G services to “all interested players,” in order to preserve competition in the German market.
