Apple iCloud: need to know

What if I don't want to use iCloud?

iCloud will be enabled by default in iOS 5. We assume it'll be possible to turn it off, but we're still waiting for confirmation. We're also waiting for details about how it will deal with capped data plans and slow WiFi connections.

When will iCloud be available?

iCloud will be available this autumn when it will be rolled out in tandem with iOS 5. A handful of features, such as redownloading music you've already bought, is available now.

How much will it cost again?

5GB of storage will be available for free, with more storage available for a fee yet to be announced. iTunes Match will cost an extra $25 a year.
