MobileMe to iCloud phishing email hitting inboxes

A new phishing email is arriving in email inboxes targeted at Apple MobileMe users. The email is supposed to be from Apple and is asking users to upgrade their MobileMe accounts to iCloud. The email has been based on an earlier email that Apple sent to MobileMe users after the WWDC iCloud introduction.

    Apple releases iWork for iOS betas for developers, includes iCloud support

    Apple has released new iCloud-enabled betas for their iWork apps -- Keynote, Pages, and Numbers to developers. The betas, available exclusively through Apple's iOS developer portal, are universal apps for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and no additional features other than iCloud support appear to have been added.

    Documents in the Cloud was one of the key iCloud features announced by Steve Jobs at WWDC and the iWork for iOS beta apps are the first test implementation of that feature.

    The beta apps come in a DMG file and need to be extracted, dragged to iTunes 10.5 beta 4, and then synced over to an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 5 beta 4. (And yes, it's somewhat ironic the first iCloud enabled versions of iWork can't be installed OTA over iCloud, but this is a beta, right?)

    Note: It looks like some people aren't having luck syncing the iWork apps over, or wait for them to sync only to watch them disappear immediately after syncing. We're not sure what's causing that, and what's allowing for successful syncs, but let us know how you fair in the comments.

    iCloud extra storage prices revealed

    Apple has enabled iCloud's Buy More Storage option in the iOS 5 beta beta and here are the prices:

    • 5GB: Free (every iOS 5 user will get this by default)
    • 10GB: $20/year (including the 5GB free, that's 15GB total)
    • 20GB: $40/year (25GB total)
    • 50GB: $100/year (55GB total)

    So pretty much $10 a month for ever additional 5GB.

    iCloud.com, iWork for iOS 5 beta apps go live

    iCloud.com is now live... if you have an Apple ID that works with iCloud. Here's the thing -- it's meant for developers right now, and Apple IDs are still fragmented to the extent that for some people, iCloud might not be too useful yet.

    For example, you may try to login with your MobileMe ID and be told it hasn't been migrated to iCloud yet. You might try to login with your iTunes ID and then, once you're in, be told you need a MobileMe address to access Mail. You can set up a new, free iCloud ID, but then all of the content you have connected to your existing Apple ID(s) won't be there.

    So, yeah, meant for developers. Still, it's nice to see it up and running, and get a preview of the design (which we're guessing is a fairly straight front-end port of the SproutCore web app code from Me.com, now running on the all new iCloud backend.)

    Current web apps available include Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Find my iPhone, and the new Documents, which currently offers Apple's iWork formats for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. (The last three of which require the new iWork for iOS beta apps, downloadable via Apple's developer site.)

    Gone are iDisk and Gallery. iCloud is no doubt an attempt to abstract away the file system-like behavior for the former, but will a web front end for PhotoStream be made available to replace the latter?

    Meanwhile, on iPhone you just get a placeholder card, nicely rendered, and the ability to get more information and a link to the developer beta.

    Gallery of screenshots after the break.

    Apple adds iCloud TV Show re-downloading to iPhone, iPad

    Our writer at large, Chad Garrett, spotted TV Shows in the Cloud today on his iPhone. It seems Apple has pulled the trigger on TV Show re-downloads, much as they've always allowed for apps and previously announced for music. It's limited to TV Shows (no movies), and to the US for now, but it's nice to see Apple adding functionality to iCloud so quickly -- even before the formal launch this fall.

    Are you seeing TV shows under your purchased content in iTunes.app?

    Update: Not all shows yet, apparently. Perhaps some networks haven't (yet) agreed to be part of the service?

    iOS 5 "whispersync" working for podcasts between iPhone, iPad?

    We haven't been able to prove this ourselves yet, but we recently received several tips from regular podcast listeners, all on iOS 5 beta 3, who say they began listening to one of our shows using the Music (formerly iPod) app on iPhone and then went to continue listening later on their iPad, only to find it automagically began playing right where they left it.
