Mac OS users will be able to securely store files on Apple’s clouds.

Every service and technology must be patented, alas someone steals your idea. Every major corporate does it, and Apple is no different. And so, the patent filings have become an increasing site of source to dig out new and upcoming technologies that the tech giants are current working on. Patently Apple, a site dedicated to Apple patents, has un-dug a new one which suggest that the Cupertino company maybe working on bring its FileVault service to the cloud.

The cloud-base feature will allow users to store files securely on Apple’s servers, which of course, will be accessible from any computer in any part of the world. An icon of the service will be placed on either the dock or the desktop and will allow users to drag and drop a file onto it which will then automatically be uploaded to the cloud server.

Typically, Apple has yet to hint towards such a service though we may see an announcement at the upcoming event on March 2.
