This week has a lot to offer from the Apple campus. There have been a lot of rumors about the next gen iPhone, the iPhone 5, and the next gen iOS accompanying it, the still in beta iOS 5. Apple released the 7th version of iOS 5 beta about 18 days back. A rumor last week suggested that the company will release the 8th version of the iOS 5 beta last Friday, but dint happen.
Now, there is a new rumor on the internet which suggests a bit more than all this. Along with iPhone 5 and iOS 5, there is another service from the Apple stable for which users are waiting eagerly, and that’s iCloud, the painless sync and store service that Apple never had. Developers have already got a preview of this, but that is going to be messed up.
MacRumors has reported that iCloud will be reset on the 22nd of September, and according to the report, all data will be lost if you dont restore your backup before it is set. Below is what Apple has told iOS developers, according to the report on MacRumors:
“On Thursday, September 22, the iCloud Backup data will be reset. Backing up to iCloud or restoring from an iCloud backup will be unavailable from 9 AM PDT – 5 PM PDT. If you attempt a backup or restore during this time, you will receive an alert that the backup or restore was not successful. After this reset, you will be unable to restore from any backup created prior to September 22. A ful backup will happen automatically the next time your device backs up to iCloud.”
If you remember, Game Center was reset the day before iOS 4.1 was released. So, if you apply the same theory here, the reset of iCloud could mean either the 8th version of the beta of IOS 5, or the GM version of iOS 5 is coming on September 23rd, which is awesome. The previous rumors seem to have been making sense.
