    Hi, I have a few questions about iCloud in terms of the type of cloud storage offered from day 1. Am I right in thinking, video as well as photo's and music will be stored in the cloud? In addition, does it offer generic file storage for Pages documents, PDF's and other files I might need to backup?

    And lastly, will iCloud be available as a release with Lion or will it still be beta only?

    Many thanks, Rob.

    All information about iCloud can be found on Apple's site - http://www.apple.com/icloud/

    According to the site...

    ...documents will also be saved on the cloud (http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/documents.html) although it will only work originally for iWork.

    As for the release date. Steve said during the keynote that it would roll out in the Fall (Autumn in real English), so that's after Lion is released.

    I thought iCloud was due for release on IOS in Autumn but for Mac with the Lion release. However, I guess it's a cloud service and therefore all devices will get it when ready.

    Now, we're all up to speed as to Apple allowing you to re-download previous music purchases (except outside the U.S., like here in Australia :mad:)


    Does anyone know if you can re-download previously purchased (obviously not rented) movies?
