Apple WWDC 2011: iCloud and Goodbye MobileMe

Apple Photo Stream

iCloud is a service that will store you content i the cloud and wirelessly push this information you all of your devices. Here’s how Steve Jobs said it, “iCloud stores your content in the cloud and wirelessly pushes it to all your device. It automatically uploads it, stores it, and pushes it to all your devices.” We’re talking iBooks, purchased music, photos, videos, device settings, and app data. Documents in the Cloud will sync your Pages, Numbers, and Keynote data between your iDevices. And say bye-bye to MobileMe—calendar, mail, and contact information will sync for free (up to 5 gigs).

Another iCloud feature called Photo Stream is a type of universal gallery in Photos that will exist across all of your iOS devices, your Apple TV, your laptop and desktop, as well as Windows PC’s. Now when you take a picture on your iPhone it will show up on your iPad and laptop. Photos will be stored in the cloud for thirty days and don’t count towards you 5GB allotment. iCloud will launch with the new iOS 5 this fall.

Like I mentioned earlier, MobileMe got canned. You can still access your data until June 20, 2012 but they are no longer accepting new enrolments. We are hearing that people who have auto-renewed recently have already and are receiving refunds.
