Posted by at 11:33 pm on June 6, 2011

Apple CEO Steve Jobs returned from his medical leave to give the keynots address at the company’s World Wide Developer’s Conference today.  One of the products announced is iCloud, the company’s bid to unite desktop and mobile computing devices via a cloud-based synchronization network.

What is iCloud?

Apple describes it as “iCloud is so much more than a hard drive in the sky. It’s the effortless way to access just about everything on all your devices. iCloud stores your content so it’s always accessible from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC.”

You get instant access to your music, apps, latest photos, and other data. It is also designed to keep your email, contacts, and calendars up to date across all your devices. No syncing required.

When you sign up for iCloud, you  get 5GB of free storage. Apple says that should be enough space because of the way iCloud stores your content. Your purchased music, apps, and books, as well as your photo stream, don’t count against your free storage. That leaves your mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app dat

Availability

Apple’s iCloud service is compatible with all Apple products and will be available this fall.
