Today is the big day, the day we’ve all been waiting for. Apple will be releasing the final version of iOS 5 to the public in the coming hours and we will be able to experience all the 200 new features. That’s not the only thing that they’re releasing today. Apple’s cloud storage and syncing solution, iCloud will also go live today.
Apple released iTunes 10.5 yesterday for everyone, so we could all get ourselves ready for the treat. You will need to have the latest version of iTunes to upgrade your iOS device to iOS 5. However, we are not really sure if everyone will opt to do so, specially if you’re on iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS. There is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 yet, but it has been mentioned that the development is in process.
Due to the recent developments that are happening around the Apple world, they’ve also updated their iCloud website. And it has been majorly updated. The login screen has been changed and it looks really clean. But, it looks like the doors are still closed for regular iOS users, only developers are allowed to login into iCloud.
Currently it’s asking to set up iCloud on iOS 5 to be able to login, which can be done if you’re a developer. Well, normal people can too, but that’s a whole different thing. Using this website, you can access all your synced data, photos, music, contacts and even check your email. You can even track where your iPhone is with Find my iPhone.
You can visit iCloud at www.icloud.com.
