In the past 10 years we have seen a multitude of high-tech products released by Apple that have changed the way we live our lives. First we had the iMac computer where we could download music, share files, and export movies, but it didn’t end there. We soon stocked up our offices with iPods, iPhones, iTouches, and iPads to simplify travel, organization, and communication. But with all these devices to make our lives easier we ended up consuming our time syncing all our files to each device. Well, thankfully Apple has found the solution to this problem and it’s called the iCloud.
The iCloud, which is set to premiere this fall, will enable you with the ability to automatically download any new music, movies, photos, and applications to all your Apple devices all over Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities. Ultimately, this means you can buy a song from iTunes on your iPad at home, and find it waiting for you on your iPhone during your morning commute to work. And the best part is you will never have to connect one product to the other to sync and share files. It just works! Here are the best reasons the iCloud is the solution for you.
1. Did I mention its Free!
The best part about the new iCloud is that it is free to use so anyone can use it without having to pay a penny. However, if you want to sync music between devices that you didn’t buy from iTunes it’s going to cost you about $25 per year. And Apple plans to end MobileMe, the clouds’ predecessor, on June 30, 2012. Which is all pretty great, unless you’re a subscriber who handed over a hundred bucks to renew MobileMe just a few weeks ago.
2. Automatically Sync all your Files to each Device.
Imagine never having to connect your iPhone to your iMac to sync your new favorite song. Users will be able to sync their devices with iCloud and will be able to get the same content everywhere else. So, if you want to keep all your emails or calendar appointments synced you simply just use the iCloud.
3. Free Storage Capability
The Apple iCloud will be offering 5GB of free storage. So you can upload content to the iCloud and keep it there for when you might want to download it at another time. The iCloud also stores your purchase history so you can see what you’ve bought and access your purchase history from the iTunes Store on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Although 5GB isn’t much space, at least it’s FREE!
