MobileMe to iCloud

iCloud serves as the successor to Apple's MobileMe service and is included free as part of Apple's iOS 5, which first became available in October 2011. The service provides users with an initial 5-GB of iCloud storage for free, with additional storage capacity available for purchase on a monthly basis.

iCloud Synchronization and Services

iCloud enables automatic synchronization across computers and iOS devices of e-mail mailboxes and messages, calendars, documents, photos, iTunes music and more.  Apple also includes an iCloud Backup service that will automatically back up all iOS device data to the cloud, further facilitating synchronization across iOS devices without the need to connect to a PC or Mac via USB and use iTunes for synchronization.
