    Hi,
    When ever I try to go to "www.ICLOUD.COM" using the IPAD browser it brings up

    "www.icloud.com/ipad_welcome"


    When I use my PC it asks me to login and i can do what I want it just goes to "www.icloud.com"

    Some other IOS 5 problem is I lost all my NOTES, this happened last upgrade.

    Also if you have imported any photos using events where the event is a date the photo is taken, then this is lost as well.

    Hi some more info.

    I have tried going to the web page icloud.com on a numberof Apple devices, IPAD and IPOD. And each time the web page gets changed to www.icloud.com/ipad_welcome where you can not logon.

    However when I try it from my netbook I get the correct page.

    So I had a look at the webpage code and found this

    [TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: webkit-line-content"]if(SC.browser.iPhone){window.location="https://www.icloud.com/iphone_welcome"[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: webkit-line-number"]




    I am no expert in this but it looks like it changes the page to the welcom page if using that type of browser and platform.
    On my IPAD I have the ATOMIC browser installed which has a feature to make the browser look like anonther when I set it to look like desktop safari and low and behold I now get the correct page ie I now only get www.icloud.com

    RC[/TD]
    [TD="class: webkit-line-content"]}else{if(SC.browser.iPad){window.location="https://www.icloud.com/ipad_welcome"}}if(!CloudOSBootstrap.isBrowserVersionAtLeast({safari:4,mobilesafari:0,firefox:4,opera:0,chrome:0,ie:8,android:0,otherwise:true}))




    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    iCloud.com is not optimized for a mobile browser. It is only meant to be rendered from PC, MAC etc.

    A poor but slightly usable work around is to use a different browser that has the option to be seen as a desktop browser like Atomic, Yahoo etc.
