On/off button not circled in image on page 1. My version of the book is a Kindle running on an iPad 2.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The orange circle appears on the image in the print version of the book (p. 2). This was a layered Illustrator file -- perhaps the callout layer got turned off when the images were prepared for the Kindle edition?

Tired of plugging your iPad into the computer with a quaint old USB cable to sync, activate, or update your slab? That should be a thing of the past when iOS 5, the next version of the iPad's operating system, arrives in the Fall of 2011. The new OS promises wireless iTunes syncing, data backups, and software updates over the air (and a WiFi connection).

Tip: Want to keep your iPad in sync with all your App Store purchases? While you're tromping around in the iPad's Settings area, tap the Store icon on the left side of the screen. Here, you can turn on automatic downloads, which deposit a copy of any music, apps, or books you bought through your iTunes account onto your iPad, no matter whether you originally bought the item on your computer, iPhone, or iPod Touch.

Tip: Want an easy way to download all your iTunes Store purchases to all your devices automatically? Install iTunes 10.3 with its iTunes in the Cloud feature and choose Edit (iTunes)>Preferences>Store. In the Automatic Downloads area, turn on the checkboxes next to Music, Apps, and Books. iTunes stores a copy of your purchases, no matter what Apple device you bought them on. Then, when you next sync any device with iTunes, it sends a copy of those purchases to that device.

Tip: Syncing photos between your iPad and other Apple devices will get a lot easier in the Fall of 2011, when Apple rolls out its iCloud service. Using the service's Photo Stream feature, pics you take or import on one device (or computer) automatically get copied to your iPad, iPhone, or anything else you have connected to iCloud. Apple has details at http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/photo-stream.html.

Tip: iTunes 10.3 and later lets you re-download Store purchases made on other devices (like an iPhone) to your computer. Click the Purchased playlist in the iTunes Source list and click the Download Previous Purchases link at the bottom of the window to see a list of all the music, apps, and books you've bought. Click the iCloud icon, type in your iTunes password, and grab those files again.

Second and third paragraphs of introductory text

Replace existing text with: That's where Apple's MobileMe service used to come in. In early June of 2011, Apple announced it would phase out MobileMe in favor of a new online service called iCloud. Scheduled to arrive in Fall 2011, iCloud will handle all your info-synching needs between computers and devices. The service gives you 5 gigabytes of free online storage so you can sync, share, and back up contacts, calendars, mail, documents, music, and more between Macs, PCs, iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches. If you already have a MobileMe account, this chapter tells you how to use it until iCloud blows in. While you can no longer sign up for a new MobileMe account, existing MobileMe-ers can still use the service to keep your contacts, calendars, and more in sync across your computer and your Apple devices. MobileMe itself will be active until June 30, 2012, giving you plenty of time to transition your stuff to the new iCloud service. But if you can't wait to gaze up into iCloud, read about it at http://www.apple.com/icloud.

Note: MobileMe's upcoming conversion to iCloud isn't the only change scheduled for Fall 2011. Apple plans to roll out iOS 5, which brings 200 new features to the iPad, including a new messaging service, a virtual newsstand for digital publications, Twitter integration, and much more. For a preview of the changes to come, stroll over to http://www.apple.com/ios/ios5.
