2 Ways Apple’s iCloud Upgrade Will Affect You

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

According to The Wall Street Journal, the folks at Apple are working hard on launching an upgraded iCloud service during the Apple World-Wide Developer Conference on June 11th, 2012.

Interestingly, iCloud was first launched during the same conference just under a year ago on June 6th, 2011.  Apple was proud to announce a service that allowed users to music, contacts, calendars, and email on remote servers for download on multiple devices such as iOS-based mobile devices, and personal Mac computers.  This service is being used by over 125 million users.

We’re excited to share 2 ways Apple’s Upgrade to iCloud will affect you: 

1.) New photo-sharing features.  Are you obsessed with Instagram? Do you love sharing your Facebook photo albums? Well get ready for one more neat way to share.  Apple’s new iCloud upgrade will encourage users to share photo albums with their other iCloud friends.  Like Instagram, you can look forward to witty little comments on all your uploaded albums.  

As it currently stands, iCloud users can upload pictures to one single album through a feature called Photo Stream. This action syncs the photo album across all devices, but it doesn’t share them.

We all know picture based social networking is red hot, and Apple is looking to get their piece of the pie.  Especially since Facebook recently acquired Instagram for a cool $1 billion.

2. Sync personal videos, notes and reminders.  Apple loves syncing.  So much so, users will now be able to sync personal videos, notes and reminders across all iCloud enabled devices.  Currently, notes and reminders have to be accessed via various apps.  The hope is that these new features will be released with Apple’s next mobile operating system, iOS 6, which is also scheduled to launch in June, 2012.

The folks at Apple are mildly concerned about the costs of storing huge volumes of user data such as music, apps, movies, etc. purchased through iTunes. Users get an additional five gigabytes for free.

Apple has declined to comment on any of the above, but this upgrade moves to be the biggest upgrade of iCloud since October, 2011.  All in all, Apple is being very strategic with this upgrade by allowing customers to access data across all devices.  We’re excited to see it roll out in June, 2012!
