iCloud has launched

Today is October 12 and Apple is releasing iOS 5 and the iCloud.

Today is a big release day for Apple fans. Apple unleashes the iCloud and will release iOS 5 today. is already live and you can login with your Apple ID. I actually just tried it and it does not work for my Apple ID. I get a message to saying: "To sign in, move this MobileMe account to iCloud." I think I only tested MobileMe briefly years ago. When I try to login into MobileMe with my Apple ID, I get an error saying that i need to log in with my MobileMe ID. So that is off to a great start for me.

Update 1 (8am PTD):
Apple has still not pulled the trigger on iCloud. If you access you get a button that says set up iCloud on this device. The link is though going to a page not found error.

Looks like Apple is still restricting access for developers. If you already have iOS 5 you also get in. As reported some Germans already got the iPhone 4S.

What is the iCloud?
The new iCloud service will replace mobileMe and include iTunes in the cloud. iCloud will work seamlessly with applications on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC to automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and automatically and wirelessly push it to all your devices. When anything changes on one of your devices, all of your devices are wirelessly updated almost instantly. More iCloud Details.

iOS 5 is expected to be released somewhen during the day.
