Is Apple Resetting iCloud for iPhone 5, iPhone 4S Launch?

Apple has told developers that it is planning to reset the iCloud beta on September 22, indicating that the launch of iOS 5 and iPhone 5 is very near.

The iPad maker said in a note on the Apple developer forum that backing up to the iCloud or restoring data from the iCloud will be available on September 22 till 5PM 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 22nd. A full backup will happen automatically the next time your device backs up to iCloud,” Apple said in the note.

According to PC Mag (opens in new tab), Apple is expected to launch the new platform and products at the end of September with the products available in the stores starting October 7th.

The company will launch the iOS 5 platform along with the highly awaited iPhone 5 and a cheaper version of the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S.

The Apple iCloud, which was unveiled by former CEO Steve Jobs sometime ago, will allow users to back up their data including documents, movies and music, on a remote server and access it from anywhere with an internet connection.
