Apple has announced that there will be an iCloud reset on September 22nd. This means, all of your iCloud stuff will be deleted from Apple’s servers. This includes your Photo Stream data, back ups, calendars, address book, mail, and iTunes Match.
Sources are saying that Apple will also release iOS 5 GM shortly after.
Apple has said that iCloud will be deleted from 9a.m. – 5p.m. (Pacific Time) on September 22nd.
So make sure to backup EVERYTHING before it’s gone, forever.
Here’s the official press release:
iCloud Backup Reset
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.
My iCloud data wasn’t reset.. Did the reset actually happen??
Alan Vazquez says
yes it did. Your iPhone probably reuploaded it. I know I didn’t have anything anymore until I updated iCloud on my Mac and it reuploaded everything. Apple is currently deleting iTunes Match stuff as we speak.
