Apple i-cloud explained in 5 simple points

“Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, American poet, 1803-1882

There is no doubt you’ve heard something about Apple’s upcoming iCloud release. The tech world was all abuzz as the rumor mill churned out some interesting speculation as to what exactly it could be. And thankfully the wait will soon be over as Apple introduced the service at the beginning of last month, claiming that it would be available in the fall coinciding with the newest iOS 5 release. But what exactly is iCloud and how can it change your life?

1.) At the most basic level the iCloud is essentially an extra hard drive where you can store your important files like music, apps, photos, documents, calendars, contacts, and more. But it really does so much more than just store data.

2.) It syncs all of the content across all of your devices so that the days of manual syncing are over. Everything is available at all times across any device. It’s actually incredible in it of itself. But there’s more.

3.) Apple is allowing users to download already purchased songs for free across your computers. This has since been unheard of and now will likely be revolutionary for those of us who never wanted to bother copying music for each device, like myself.

4.) Another amazing feature will be the ability to share multiple calendars so families or friends can know other’s schedules.

5.) Lastly, the backup is extremely helpful. You should know by now how important it is to backup your computer regularly. Now iCloud will do it for you. iCloud boasts that it can backup your music, apps, books, photos, settings, apps, texts, ringtones, and more without you doing a thing.

The files will be available whereever and whenever we need them. A great idea, if you work across computers and mobile devices but scary if you think our entire life will be stored by an entity that we have never seen nor do we know where it is physically located!!!
