Apple iCloud : Apple announce that iCloud will be available on October 12, including iTunes in the Cloud, Photo Stream and Documents in the Cloud. Apple iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, contacts, calendars, documents and more, keeping them up to date across all your mmobile devices. When content changes on one device, all your other Apple devices are updated automatically and wirelessly. "Apple iCloud is the easiest way to manage your content, because Apple iCloud does it all for you and goes far beyond anything available today," said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. "You don't have to think about syncing your devices, because it happens automatically, and it is free."|
Apple iCloud : iTunes in the Cloud
iTunes in the Cloud lets you automatically download (new) music purchases to all your mobile devices, so you can buy a song on your Apple iPad and find it waiting for you on your Apple iPhone - no syncing required and at no additional costs. Apple iCloud stores your previously purchased iTunes history, you can see what you’ve bought no matter which device you bought it on, and since you already own the content, you can play it on your devices or simply tap the Apple iCloud icon to download it to store and play later.
Apple iCloud Photo Stream service
Apple iCloud’s innovative Photo Stream service lets you take a photo on one Apple device and have it automatically appear on your other mobile devices. A photo you take on your iPhone is sent to Apple iCloud and automatically pushed to your iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC. You can even view your Photo Stream album on your Apple TV. Apple iCloud manages your Photo Stream efficiently, showing your last 1000 photos so you don’t run out of storage space.
Apple iCloud Documents in the Cloud
Apple iCloud’s Documents in the Cloud keeps your documents up to date across all your devices, automatically. For example, if you create a document using Pages on your iPad, that document is automatically sent to Apple iCloud. When you use Pages on another iOS device, you can open the same document with your latest changes and pick up editing or reading right where you left off.
Apple iCloud - App Store & iBookstore
Apple iCloud lets you see your App Store and iBookstore purchase history and download those apps and books to any of your devices at any time. Purchased apps and books can be automatically downloaded to your devices, not just the device they were purchased on. Simply tap the Apple iCloud icon and download your purchased apps and books to any of your iOS devices at no additional cost.
Apple iCloud Backup
Apple iCloud Backup automatically and securely backs up your most important information to Apple iCloud daily over Wi-Fi whenever your iOS device is connected to a power source. Once you plug it in, everything is backed up quickly and efficiently. Apple iCloud Backup takes care of backing up your photos and video in the Camera Roll, device settings, app data, home screen and app organization, messages and ringtones. Apple iCloud Backup can even help you set up a new iOS device or restore the information on one you already own.
Find my iPhone app
The Find My iPhone app can help you if one of your devices is missing. Just use the free Find My iPhone app on another device, or sign in at icloud.com from a computer to see your missing iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on a map, display a message, and remotely lock or wipe your missing device. Find My iPhone now lets you locate a missing Mac running OS X Lion.
Apple iCloud Price & Availability
