Apple Releases iOS 5 and iCloud

As Apple said last week they, finally released iOS 5 and the iCloud service. iOS 5 runs on the 4th generation iPod Touch and the iPhone's 3GS, 4 and 4GS. The new mobile operating system has slight improvements to a lot of features, but the most noticeable is the revamping of the notifications. Now iOS 5 notifies you at the top of your screen without interrupting what you were doing. There is also a drop down menu that comes from the top of the screen which logs your untouched notifications. To download iOS 5 open up iTunes, connect your compatible device, and click check for update under ypur devices name! As for iCloud the service is preloaded on iOS 5 and you can mange this in your settings application. iCloud backs up your settings, apps, purchased music and much more. It will take me some time to figure out the pros and cons of iCload, but so far there have been plenty of pros. iCloud also came out for your mac, and in order to install you need to check for software updates by clicking the apple in the top left of your screen. Let me know what you guys think about the new iOS 5 and iCloud services down below! Be sure to tell me what you like and don't like about either one.
