So it is official: Apple have announced the iPhone 4S with some very cool features. On it’s own, the upgrade seems a little underwhelming, however once you see what’s packed into iOS 5 you can’t help but feel impressed with it all.

Let’s take a look at iCloud…

Every new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch comes with iOS 5. And every new Mac comes with OS X Lion. Which means the new Apple devices you purchase are all ready for iCloud, right out of the box.

iCloud is easy to use, and setting it up is no exception. It takes only a few steps before all your important stuff is up to date on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC.

iCloud is so much more than a hard drive in the sky. It makes it quick and effortless to access just about everything on the devices you use every day. iCloud automatically stores your content so it’s always available to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. It gives you access to your music, apps, latest photos, and more from whichever device you happen to be using. And it keeps your email, contacts, and calendars up to date across all your devices. No syncing required. No management required. In fact, no anything required. iCloud does it all for you.

When you sign up for iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of free storage. And that’s plenty of room, because of the way iCloud stores your content. Your purchased music, apps, books, and TV shows, as well as your Photo Stream, don’t count against your free storage. Since your mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app data don’t use as much space, you’ll find that 5GB goes a long way. And if you need more storage, you can easily purchase a storage upgrade right from your device.


iTunes in the iCloud

With iCloud, the music you purchase in iTunes appears automatically on all your devices. You can also download your past iTunes purchases. Where you want, when you want.

Photo Stream

With iCloud, when you take a photo on one device, it automatically appears on all your other devices. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there. Everywhere you want them.

Documents in the Cloud

If you have the same iCloud-enabled apps on more than one device, iCloud automatically keep your documents up to date across all your devices. So you don’t have to.

Apps, Books and Backup

iCloud makes sure all your devices have the same apps. And books. iCloud also backs up your information. So if something happens, it can help save the day.

Calendar, Mail and Contacts

iCloud stores your calendar, mail, and contacts and automatically pushes them to all your devices. So you can switch from one device to another and still go about business as usual.

Find my Friends and Find my iPhone

Find the party. Find your family. Or find a place to meet up after work. And if you lose your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, iCloud can help you find it, too.
