Apple has launched iCloud, which seamlessly stores users' content and wirelessly pushes it to all their devices automatically so that everything stays up-to-date and in sync. iCloud will be available for free with iOS 5 and will work on iOS devices, as well as on Macs and PCs.
Dan Frommer at Business Insider says iCloud will encourage consumers to purchase additional Apple products and over time since it will allow the devices to work better together. A number of other analysts responded favorably to the new platform as well. The resounding conclusion was that iCloud would be of more long-term benefit to Apple than it will be of short-term benefit to the company, says TG Daily.
