This week is one of the busiest weeks for the folks at Apple. Mutiple major software updates are to be pushed, including iOS 5, and iCloud, a major cloud storage and sync service from the house of Apple.
Apple has already released iTunes 10.5 which is required to sync iDevices running iOS 5 and features WiFi Sync and iTunes Match. Now the company has updated iCloud with a new look and it’s out of beta now and available to general public. However, it’s an iOS 5-only service, which will be out today.
For those unfamiliar, iCloud.com is the web portal for iCloud (the successor to MobileMe), a cloud storage and cloud computing service from Apple Inc. It acts as a data syncing center for email, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, notes, to-do lists, and other data from your Mac and iOS devices from anywhere in the world. Users can also store their music and documents in the cloud. up to 10 devices connected to the service are supported for free, along with 5 GB of storage space (excluding music). Upgrade options include: 10 GB for $20 per year, 20 GB for $40 per year or 50 GB for $100 per year.
This week is definitely getting interesting. First we got the iTunes 10.5, now iCloud.com and iOS 5 is also scheduled to be released sometime today. We’ll update you as soon as iOS 5 hits masses. Stay Tuned!
