    Probably discussed before but here goes anyway. If you have to sign on to iCloud with Windows or a Mac what happens if you don't have anything but an iPad or other mobile device available and want to go there.

    When you login to www.icloud.com on a computer, you'll find various "apps" there, like Contacts, Calendar, Mail (your iCloud account only), iCloud Drive, Pages, Numbers, Keynotes (if you use them in connection with iCloud), Find my iPhone, and Settings.

    In Find my iPhone, you can see all your Apple devices and their current location, if they're turned on and Find my ... is enabled. You can play sound, enable Lost Mode and erase the devices from there.

    In Settings, you'll see a list of your devices, among other things, such as iCloud storage. When you select one of your devices, you'll find it's serial number, and IMEI (if possible).

    Hope that helps.

    Well after searching around I found the way to sneak in on Mercury or Chrome from iPad. Funny you can't get in from Safari, boy, that's screwed up I would have thought just to opposite.

    It was possible to request the desktop view of a site in Safari with iOS 8x, so you were allowed to login to iCloud on your iPad's or iPhone's Safari app too.

    That's no longer possible with the new software. It looks like this feature has been removed.

    Tap-hold on the refresh icon in the URL bar (the circle-arrow). The Request Desktop feature has been moved to there.

    Hold in mind that iCloud does not support mobile web browsers. While you can call it up in Safari and other browsers that can request desktop sites, some of the features may not work correctly. For that matter, I know that some of the features don't' work correctly.

    That said, there is very little that you can do at icloud.com that you can't do on the iPad with the correct app (all of which should be free). The only thing I can think of, at the moment, is recovering recently deleted iCloud Drive Files, Contacts, and Calendar events.
