iCloud replaces iTunes for iOS device syncing



iTunes10

John Gruber, founder of Daring Fireball web site, claims that he heard iCloud is something more than a new music service, it’s sooner will be a full replacement for iTunes.

Don’t think of iCloud as the new MobileMe; think of iCloud as the new iTunes.

Instead of simply revamped MobileMe with a new name, new UI, new functionalities and call it iCloud, Gruber pictures a scenario where iCloud becomes the new standard to sync all kinds of media and information to an iOS device:

Check out this video of German guys defacing the upcoming Hamburg Apple Store with a giant Windows logo.

iCloud To Be Deeply Integrated With Apple’s Time Capsule



iCloud

Cult of Mac source claims that iCloud will be deeply integrated with Time Capsule, confirming rumors that suggested a refreshed Time Capsule would come with embedded A4 or A5 CPUs. Apparently iCloud will become “a personal cloud server”.  There obviously will be a “Home Folder” where files, which are saved on a Mac connected to the Time Capsule, will be instantly backed up and then available to any remote Mac or iOS device. The Time Capsule will be able to archive and served up any files to any connected device. Such functions will allow you to upload content to Time Capsule and make such content available for all devices on your network. If you work not on your network, all changes will be automatically made when you connect to your network.

Leaked Photo of iOS 5



TechCrunch has posted a new rumor photo of iOS 5. It shows integrated into the iOS status bar Twitter notifications. We have heard rumors saying that Twitter will be tightly integrated into new iOS 5.

Again, no clue if it’s actually real or not, but the idea might be right. Notifications that come down from the top bar could be how Apple ends up doing things in iOS 5. After all, this would mimic already existing functionality — when tethering, a blue strip appears along the top; when on the phone, it’s a green strip. Might notifications (or at least Twitter notifications) produce a gray strip?

iOS 5 will be announced today at WWDC.

iTunes Reveals Potential iOS 5 Feature: “Automatic Download”



MyAppUpdates

MacRumors recently found out that iTunes is now showing a new sentence on the My App Updates page: “Or if your device has Automatic Download enabled for apps, your updates will download to your device without having to sync.” So we may suppose that iOS 5 will have a new option that will automatically grab applications updates to your iOS device. Now you have to sync or download updates yourself through the App Store application. Though, the new   “Automatic Download” function may be available not only for iOS applications. But recent updates show that Apple has already removed that message from the iTunes, killing the service completely.

Rumor: New Time Capsule To Run iOS, A4/A5 CPU



time capsul

Apple reportedly could release new versions of Time Capsule next week, during WWDC. Rumors claim that Time Capsule will receive some important updates: the Time Capsule would recognize known devices on a network, check for software updates available, download them in the background, and later seed them to all devices in a few seconds without having to wait for a download process. Such process would allow users to store content on iCloud. The new Time Capsule is said to run the A4 or A5 processors, just like the second-generation of Apple TV, and iOS operating  system.

Such Time Capsule that will run iOS and be capable of caching content for other devices, will allow iPhones and iPads to connect to iCloud, as well as will increase streaming speed and overall quality of media content. iOS-based Time Capsule could also be used for a broader set of functionalities such as serving content to Apple TVs or enabling additional options in Lion’s.
