Now that Apple has officially revealed what iCloud will contain when it launches this fall, it’s time to sit back and look at what the service isn’t going to bring to our lives. Sure, we know it’s free, but we hang with that “glass half empty” kind of crowd.
When you’ve got 5,200 developers attending your latest conference and you announce the availability of beta software for them to download and start playing with immediately, how do you manage the Wi-Fi network so there won’t be issues? Somehow, Apple has managed it with this year’s WWDC.
Much like Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 simply has too many new features for Apple to spend a two-hour keynote detailing them all. If the 10 features revealed at WWDC 2011 on Monday have whet your appetite for more, strap in and click on to find out some of the cool stuff coming this fall that Apple didn’t talk about in San Francisco.
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco didn’t just close up shop and go away after Monday’s keynote -- it’s in full swing for the groovy guys and gals who create the third-party Mac and iOS software we know and love, and a few of them even got awarded for that work on Tuesday night.
With more than 250 new features coming to Mac OS X Lion in July, it was impossible for Apple to demonstrate them all, especially during a two-hour keynote shared by iOS 5 and the introduction of iCloud. So what are some of the features that didn’t make the cut? Why, we’re glad you asked.
The dust has settled at Moscone West and the WWDC 2011 keynote is now only a memory. Apple CEO Steve Jobs and friends covered a lot of ground in only two hours, but like many keynotes before it, some of the more interesting possibilities are the ones that didn’t get talked about.

While developers testing iOS 5 are getting to play with a beta of iTunes 10.5, the rest of us will have to be content with iTunes 10.3, which finally hit Apple’s website on Monday night and is ready to rock your Mac.
Lost amidst the Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud melee on Monday was another developer-only release for Safari 5.1. The next version of Apple’s web browser will ship with Lion in July, but here’s what you’ll have to look forward to.
When Apple made their software announcements at WWDC today, they said that developers would be given early access to the new software. Well, they've made good on that promise by updating the Apple Dev Centers for iOS and Mac OS. This means that registered (paid!) developers can now get access to iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion, iTunes 10.5, and a new Apple TV update.
