Apple’s busy day continues, with the company’s new Find My Friends app going live in the App Store ahead of iOS 5 and iCloud. Now you’ll never lose track of your friends and loved ones -- assuming they have the good sense to also have an iOS device, that is.
Happy iOS 5 Day! Of course, today also brings another long-awaited arrival for both iOS and Mac OS X users in the form of iCloud, the next generation of Apple’s cloud storage and syncing initiative. While the service requires a number of updates in order to fully work, one of them -- the iCloud website -- is now open to all.
Can you feel the excitement in the air? iOS 5 and iCloud will arrive on Wednesday, and the telltale signs include a new iTunes 10.5 pushed out today. But that’s not all that’s making news this week -- here’s a look at the latest stuff we’ve been tracking for this fine Tuesday, October 11, 2011.
The era of the PC-free is finally here! Syncing over Wi-Fi has to be one of the best new features of iOS 5. You no longer have to connect your iOS device over a cable to your Mac or PC. Like AirDrop, all you need to sync is to have your iOS device and Mac on the same network. Cutting the cord couldn’t be easier, and we’ll show you why (and how!).
It has definitely been a week filled with shocks. No iPhone 5 was one thing, but it paled in comparison to losing the man who started it all, Steve Jobs. We look back this week with sadness, with fond memories, and with just a bit of Steve's last product.
Apple’s “Let’s talk iPhone” event revealed that the new iOS 5 will be arriving on October 12, and loads of puffy clouds will be floating along for the ride as iCloud launches on the same date -- and stay tuned, because iTunes Match will follow in late October.
As awesome as the new iPhone 4S looks, there’s just one more thing that senior vice president of worldwide product marketing Phil Schiller left out of his keynote -- and it’s at the heart of the company’s “Let’s talk iPhone” invitation.
Apple’s senior vice president of iOS software Scott Forstall followed up this morning’s iOS market figures and announcement of a new Cards app by revealing that iOS 5 will be released to the world in just over a week -- Wednesday, October 12.
Here we are, one week before Apple is set to wow us with whatever they've got behind the curtains, so if you thought the hot news stories this week weren't going to skew toward being about next Tuesday and what we might gain -- and what we might lose -- well, you're in the wrong place.
Although we still don’t know when Apple will flip the switch on iCloud, the company finally announced a media event for its new iPhone next week, which likely means the fateful day is just around the corner -- so here’s a recap on everything we know about it so far.
