    From apple.com/icloud

    Available in beta now in the U.S. only and requires iOS 4.3.1 on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 (GSM model), iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation), iPad, or iPad 2, or a Mac or PC with iTunes 10.3. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer in the iTunes Store. Download iTunes 10.3 free.

    So you need 4.3.1 and iTunes 10.3

    Also the only feature working at the moment is wireless syncing of iTunes music purchases to all your devices. All the other cloud goodness needs iOS 5.

    Isn't the point to get rid of the need to tether the iPad to the PC? Why do I need a new version of iTunes in that case?

    Because the current iTunes only syncs with a cable.

    The new version of iTunes means if you buy from iTunes on your pc or mac then that is also wirelessly synced to your devices. It's not a requirement but just feature matching all the places you can buy content from.

    Thanks, maybe I should be clearer, I live in a fantasy world where I can download apps, movies, tv, podcasts and music etc direct over wifi and have all that content 'backed up' in the cloud somewhere. In that case I could then remove and reload content to my hearts content using only my wifi connection and never connect to iTunes or a computer again....

    Is that what's coming or did I miss the point?

    Yes that's the idea, but you will also be able to do the same with the desktop version of iTunes as well, that's why desktop iTunes will be updated.

    Well, I just noticed on my iPad that in the apps store I now have a new button that says 'purchased' which lists all the apps I have bought, and whether they are on my iPad or not (if not they have a little cloud next to them) I guess this is new coz I didn't see it before, but I opened the iTunes store in anticipation of the same, but it is not there.....

    So close....

    Had a look myself, can't see for the life of me why all the apps I've deleted (some utter rubbish!) from my iPad and PC as well are still listed, there should be a way to delete them permanently

    I am in the process of creating a new sub forum to cover iCloud considering it was only announced 4 hours ago it is difficult for users to respond as like most are still reading through the transcripts from the presentation further more it will no become active until autumn / spring ( depending where you live) parts of it are available and yes iTunes needs to be upgraded. I will announce the new sub forums once in place.

    iCloud.....MobileMe?

    I need to sign up for MobileMe again. Its been marginally useful so I'm on the fence about signing up again.

    Is iCloud sorta like MobileMe....is it cheaper? I'm trying to sort out the reality vs the hype of the ANNOUNCEMENT.

    So after reading the iCloud info page it looks like you'll have to pay an extra $25 a year to also have access to all your music (at least what's available in the iCloud library) you've ripped from your own CDs or downloaded from other sources. That's like 99% of what I have.:(

    The $25 is if you want to include the music you have ripped to you computer or downloaded from a different music provider. if you download from iTunes then it's free to store on icloud. You get 5gb but your apps and iTunes music won't effect that.

    I'm really liking the icloud concept. I don't use my iPad for music because I HATE iTunes but if I can figure out how to use the feature I probably will use it, especially if it can run in the background like the built in music player. If not I'm not interested at all.
