It’s official – Apple confirmed an upcoming release of iOS 5 and a “Cloud services offering” names iCloud (not surprisingly).
In a recent press release the Cupertino company laid to rest all the speculation about a possible cloud product.
That’s about all they’ve said though. It is thought that there will be much more detail coming out at the Apple WWDC Conference June 6th – 10th in San Francisco.
What is a “cloud services offering”? well, the assumption is that it’ll be somewhere for you to store your iTunes media and will be able to access is anywhere?
As for iOS 5. Well, your guess is as good as mine, officially. Of course there are leaks that we might talk about later 🙂
Here’s the release:
