Web-only access to iCloud

If you don’t have an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, you can still use iCloud Drive, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Contacts, and Notes directly from iCloud.com.

What is web-only access to iCloud?

Web-only access to iCloud lets you share and collaborate with others in real time on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, even if they don't have access to an Apple device. It includes access to iCloud Drive, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Contacts, and Notes for iCloud and 1GB of free storage for any notes and documents you create. That means you can invite anyone to share a file. Then they can use their web-only account to access the file and make edits, without leaving iCloud.
