    iPhone Live 155: Enter iOS 5 and iCloud


    Anyone know what the hidden banner had on it? There was one that was covered in the pre-meeting photos. Not sure if it was this one or something else.

    Good call!! That got some attention and then flew under the radar the rest of the way. Was that for iTunes Match? I was really hoping it would've been for iPhone 4S. Solid iOS update! May have to bite the bullet and get an iPhone 4 this fall if no incremental model is announced by then.

    The hidden banner had Android and Blackberry on it .. it said iOS 5 proudly copied all the new features and made them magical. lol

    Proudly copied those that copied others that copied the original copy from the copy of the original. Who was the original again? Who made it better the first time, and the second, who dominates, who is dominated--so confusing? :)

    Have you noticed that iCloud is already on our phones? Loom in iTunes and you will see a tab for purchases. In there you will see everything you ever bought and what is not currently on your phone.

    Contrary to the iTunes Match discussion on ripped music - ALL your ripped music is made accessible from iCloud - if it matches what they have - no problem, if it doesn't match, then you upload what doesn't match.

    ok question for who ever can help me.. have dl ios5 beta upgraded to itunes 10.5 beta.. phone is jail broken.. when i go to restore it says it will restore and upgrade to newest version update. reason i have not updated yet on verizon is because im jailbroken. now. i'm assuming i will have to restore and upgrade first before i can upgrade to the ios5 beta right? cause everytime i try to open the beta .dmg file it doesnt do anything. not worried about fraggin the phone as i have used tiny umbrella to back up my firmware. so is the first update needed or is there a reason i cant open the beta file with itunes 10.5?? i upgraded like the instructions say to but nothing happens .please help .. thanks.

    This may seem like a dumb question but where do i go to download icloud? i cant seem to find it on the app store or itunes store.... help me!
