News: Happy iCloud Reset Day!

Posted on September 22, 2011

A few weeks ago it was revealed that Apple would be resetting iCloud, to coincide with getting iOS 5 ready to roll. We haven’t heard of anything about any new iOS 5 revisions yet (beta or GM), but backups are down for supposedly just a bit longer.

Clearly the reasoning is that it’s working as expected and Apple doesn’t want all that beta data laying around:

On Thursday, September 22, the iCloud Backup data will be reset. Backing up to iCloud or restoring from an iCloud backup will be unavailable from 9 AM PDT – 5 PM PDT. If you attempt a backup or restore during this time, you will receive an alert that the backup or restore was not successful. After this reset, you will be unable to restore from any backup created prior to September 22. A full backup will happen automatically the next time your device backs up to iCloud.

Can we get iOS 5 already?
