With Apple’s event on October 4, 2011 just over one day away, some people may think everything is in place for the keynote at Apple’s headquarters, although this would not be entirely true. You may have seen the big banner floating outside the building in Cupertino, which states “Let’s Talk iPhone” but there will be a lot more on the cards at tomorrow’s event.
We heard earlier today that Apple was trying to finalize music rights for iCloud in more places than just the United States. Apple’s aim is to get worldwide music rights before the event is streamed around the world in about 28 hours time. This article reports that sources “familiar” with the arrangements say iTunes managers are trying to secure a deal so it could essentially be announced during the keynote.
Apple’s new iCloud service will store your music, documents, calendars, apps, photos and more wirelessly in “the cloud”, and then you’ll get access to your information automatically as it’s pushed to all your devices. This means while you’re mobile getting access to data and purchases will be much easier, and can be pushed to your PC, Mac, iPod touch, iPhone and iPad. Apple is expected to give a release time for iOS 5 at tomorrow’s press conference, and as soon as your iOS device is updated to the latest software your apps will be ready to use iCloud.
Those of you that have not found a blog for live streaming of Apple’s event can find a few in our earlier article here, which gives you a few good places for complete coverage. If you’re not sure what iCloud is or want to learn more, then you should take some time to find out via the official website. What Apple announcements do you expect?
