Apple has warned that it will be doing major maintenance on its iCloud service this Thursday. The launch of the Gold Master version of iOS 5 could follow immediately after.
In a message posted recently on the forums reserved for developers, Apple warns that the iCloud service (currently in test phase) will be interrupted this September 22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., Belgian time). The Cupertino company indicates that it intends to delete previous backups made from iDevices. New backups can be done after this maintenance. “A full backup will take place the next time your device connects to iCloud”, Apple said, adding that the purge will not affect email stored in Mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks.
The launch of the Gold Master iOS 5 version this week?
After performing this maintenance, it is known that Apple will make the Gold Master (pre-final) version of iOS 5 available for download on its servers. At least that's what it meant to know 9to5mac who believes that the announcement of the date of the next Apple press conference is now very close. A "keynote" which should announce the marketing of the iPhone 5 for October 7, according to the same source.
We discuss it on the forum.
