All About iCloud

HOPEFULLY everyone is surviving Monday alright. This post is about a week over due, so I apologize for that.

Exactly one week ago Apple held its annual World Wide Developers Conference. As you all know they released 3 new things. One of which is going to be iCloud. iCloud is like a replacement for the program MobileMe. MobileMe was a service that you had to pay Apple for, it was just like iCloud is going to be except with not nearly as many features.

iCloud is going to allow you to synchronize all data between all of your Apple devices. Apple’s CEO said “[it] Stores content and wirelessly pushes it to all of your devices”. There are some great new features, I am going to share almost all of them with you.

The first feature that I am going to talk about today is iTunes In The Cloud. This allows you to be able to download any previously purchased song for free. As an example lets say that I have an iPod touch and an iPad. If I have a good song such as Friday by Rebecca Black on your iPod Touch, and you just can’t get enough of that song so you want it on your iPad you can press the “Retrieve from the cloud” button and it is now on my iPad for no charge! Before there was this feature, you would have to go to your computer and sync it manually.

The next features are almost exactly the same except it is for Apps from the App store. Another one is for books from the iBooks store. It is so similar I do not need to go into more detail.

The fourth feature is Backup to the Cloud. This allows you to simply back up your songs, photos, videos, applications, even your device settings, and other precious data in Apple’s cloud. To do this you simply need your AppleID, Password, and WiFi access. There will be a storage limit for how much data can be backed up, but the number is very big so it is not something to worry about.

The program will automatically sync your Calendar, contacts, shared calendar {new feature}, mail to all of your iOS devices with no advertisements.

The last one that I am going to type about today is Documents in the cloud. It will automatically update your KeyNote, Pages, and Numbers documents or presentations automatically with out you needing to push any buttons. It does it so fast!

As Mr. Jobs said at the presentation “It just works”.

You get all of these features for FREE!!! When will it be avallible you may ask? Apple has not set a specific date, all they have told us is “This Fall”

 

Thanks For Reading, have a nice rest of the week.
