Apple's iPhone 5 is set to hit stores within days, and the company has updated its iCloud service for the latest iteration of the iPhone and iOS 6.
iCloud has officially moved past beta and is now available at iCloud.com in addition to the previous avenues of access through the mobile and desktop versions.

One of the service's updates makes the Notes application a cross-platform system. Users can visit iCloud.com on a mobile device like an iPhone or iPad and leave themselves a note or reminder, which will then be easily accessible on any of their other devices. Retrieving the note will be as simple as returning to the iCloud site on another gadget.
The Find My iPhone app will also get an update with iOS 6. That application allows users to lock their iPhone remotely if it is lost or stolen and send a message to the phone and a person who may have found it. Now, Find My iPhone supports Lost Mode, and users can send a phone number to their iPhone in hopes the person who finds the device will call it and return the hardware to its rightful owner.
The Mail application will be updated with iOS 6's "Guided Access" services, which allows someone else, like perhaps your children, to play with your iPhone without deleting any important e-mail messages.
The Mail app will also get iOS 6's VIP feature, which gathers important e-mails from the senders that users select in a specific folder.
The iPhone 5 is scheduled to hit stores nationwide on Friday, Sept. 21.
