Getting to Know the iCloud

iCloud is Apple’s replacement for its MobileMe service (see “Whither MobileMe Galleries?” on the next page), and it provides both backup storage for iOS devices and data exchange between iOS devices and personal computers. iCloud is free, and you get 5 GB of backup storage, plus storage for as many as 1000 photos at any given time on Apple’s servers. (You can upgrade to more storage for a price.) The photos stored by iCloud exist in the part of the iCloud service called the Photo Stream.
