The Settings web-app was redesigned a couple of years ago. It was designed to include a visual of the storage settings and the devices that are registered to the AppleID registered to your iCloud account:
Now, the above actually comes from a mobile browser on an iPhone 7. Normally, iCloud.com data must be consumed on a device that is not considered, “mobile”, by Apple. Devices such as a portable or desktop computer. The desktop render (which is what you see above) will yield a consumable version, however the navigation is frustrating at best.
This is where the new Settings.app in iOS 10.3 comes in:
Here, you can see that the same data presented on iCloud.com can be had in the Settings app that sits right on the Springboard. It is functional and informative. This allows the user to become less reliant upon other devices other than those devices running on future versions of iOS to consume iOS data.
