Apple’s gotten round to updating the visual appearance of iCloud and, interestingly enough, the mock up created by Redditor “illionmist” pretty much nailed it.

In late June, folks began to wonder aloud what the new iOS 7 + Mavericks version of iCloud would look like? Apple’s gotten round to updating its visual appearance and, interestingly enough, Redditor “illusionmist” pretty much nailed it.

Given the ongoing iOS-ification of the Mac, it’s perhaps obvious that Apple would apply iOS 7’s new iconography. However, while the rest of us speculated, illusionmist pushed the pixels ’round and came, background aside, very close to what likely will be the finished product.

Apple has said both OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 will ship this Fall.

That said, I very much prefer the Redditor’s iOS 7 icon + nebulla background design. Compared to Apple’s rather workman-like effort, illusionmist’s layout is more attractive and, frankly, imaginative…
