By now it is hard to deny that cloud services are going to be the way of the future in terms of memory and data storage. While your current iPhone may have 16, 32 or even 64 GB of internal storage, cloud servers are (hypothetically) limitless in how much they can offer to the user.
In essence, cloud storage is just another fancy marketing name for an online private storage locker. Let’s say that you take a picture with your phone, you can then upload it to your cloud server and it is available to you whenever you need it, and it doesn’t take up precious onboard memory for your iPhone.
However, the iPhone 4S is already compatible with cloud service (or iCloud for Apple), and that leaves us wondering what exactly the iPhone 5 will bring in terms of iCloud. Hopefully, the iPhone 5 will be able to integrate iCloud technology with LTE technology. The problem with the current iCloud system is that it only works over a Wi-Fi network, so if you have an awesome picture stored in your cloud locker that you want to show a friend but aren’t connected to a network, you are out of luck (even if you’re in a 3G or 4G area).
By using the new LTE technology that the iPhone 5 is expected to have, it will make the iCloud system much, much better. In fact, with the help of LTE integration, iCloud will work the way that it should have from day one- and that is seamlessly working in the background without the user even noticing. Every time save a contact, download a song or take a picture, it will automatically be taken to your iCloud server regardless of whether you’re in a Wi-Fi spot. And if you ever drop your phone in the toilet and ruin it, once you’ve gotten your new phone it is as simple as reconnecting with your iCloud service and getting your data back.
