This could really change how you use your Apple devices to get things done. I love technology and could talk about it more than I do here at Life Thinkist. However, it’s easy to get lost in the shiny new features of the new mobile phone coming out and think it’s going to improve your life. With many features the fact is they don’t really add anything of real value.

But to me, this announcement of iCloud Drive is one of those advancements to the Apple platform that really makes a difference for people who want to get things done. Basically, iCloud now works similar to online file storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft OneDrive.

With iCloud Drive, users can store files and folders — with tags — and sync documents across all Macs, allowing for universal search directly from Finder. Apps that plug into the service receive their own folders that can be accessed and synced across multiple platforms.At launch, iCloud Drive will work with machines running OS X, iOS and Windows, meaning the service will be a truly cross-platform feature.
