    g'day all,
    i've got iTunes updated to 10.5.x, but haven't pulled he trigger on iOS5 yet on my iPad 1.

    quick question about iCloud.
    can i disable iCloud sync and stay with sync'ing to my pc only?

    tia!

    You can still back up to your computer without backing up to iCloud and you can do this wirelessly under iOS 5 and still be able to use the iPad at the same time.

    thanks to you both for responding.

    follow-up, please.
    i looked, but didn't see it... is there an iCloud setting in iTunes 10.5 that i can disable right now prior to upping to iOS5, or does that need to happen first?

    During the last stages of upgrading, it'll ask whether you want to synch to cloud or via computer.

    ok... so it's a setting on the device rather than in iTunes on the pc, correct?
