We are answering maybe the popular question in this year, what is iCloud? iCloud is the largest and most used cloud computing service available. It was launched by Apple in October of 2011 and it allows users to store files, music and iOS applications on secure cloud servers so they can be accessed and retrieved later. The service also allows all data including email, app settings and preferences, calendars, bookmarks, notes and other things to be automatically synced between all Apple and Windows devices as long as there is an internet connection.

When first iCloud Started

Originally launched as iTools way back in 2000, iCloud started as out as a way for Mac users to organize their contacts, notes and calendars in an easy to use interface. The program later relaunched as .Mac in 2002 and became MobileMe in 2008. MobileMe is the direct predecessor to iCloud and it offered many of the same services that iCloud currently offers. iCloud was launched on October 12th, 2011. It offers many services and features that are similar to the previous brand of MobileMe.
The original idea behind iCloud was to offer users a safe, convenient and easy way to store and access all of their information from one location. Because the servers are located on the internet the personal information can be accessed anywhere with just a password from any device. The purpose of iCloud was to allow people access to their information quickly and easily, and to be able to sync all their information into one location.

The iPhone has been one of the bestselling smartphones of all time thanks to its simple design, excessive functionality and the accompanying App Store where millions of distinct applications can be downloaded or purchased. The history and development of the iPhone dates back to 2004 when the Apple design team started work on the smartphone that would truly cement Apple as a global company and smartphone competitor.

Early Developments

In 2004 Apple decided to develop a smartphone to compete with the many other phones currently on the market that were offering video, photo ability and a touch-screen interface. Apple assembled a team of over 1000 employees to work on a top-secret project named “Project Purple.” Steve Jobs, the late CEO of Apple wanted to shift the focus away from the development of a tablet device and towards the development of a smartphone. Apple worked closely with AT&T Mobility (then Cingular Wireless) to design a phone that could be used on their network. The design and development phase took 30 months and cost an estimated $150 million.

Apple had previous attempts at developing a successful smartphone, although most of these attempts were chalked up as failures because the phone never caught on or wasn’t a commercial success. Instead of using traditional design features AT&T gave Apple the liberty to design a phone from the ground up using software and hardware developed by Apple. In exchange AT&T was to be the sole carrier for the Apple iPhone for at least four years after the first iPhone was launched.

The iPad has consistently been one of the best-selling tablets on the market since its release in 2010. Its popularity stems from the plethora of apps, both free and paid that are available in the app store, the official store run by Apple that sells all the apps available for the many different Apple devices. Reading magazines on your iPad is now possible thanks to the many digitalized magazine offerings available in the app store.

History of Digital Magazines

Prior to the advent of the iPad in 2010, the idea of digitalized magazines floated around quite a bit but never materialized fully. eBooks were already beginning to become popular prior to the advent of the iPad, although after the iPad was released eBook sales and “iBook” sales increased greatly. Digital magazines became popular after the iPad was released because of the way the app store allowed magazine editors and publishers to offer their magazines in a digital format. Today the app store has many different magazine titles available and a number of dedicated apps for reading and viewing digital magazines on the iPad.
