Apple iCloud Backup Data Reset on Sep 22nd; Ahead of iOS 5 Golden Master Release

September 20, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple has posted on their developer boards that they will reset iCloud backup data on September 22nd.

This means backing up from iCloud and restoring from an iCloud backup will be unavailable to developers using iCloud from 9 AM to 5 PM PDT for a full working day on that day.

Any backup created prior to September 22nd will not work and a full back up will happen automatically the next time your device backs up to the iCloud. The reset does not include data from mail, contacts, calendars, reminders or bookmarks.

The reset points to the final release of the iOS 5, also known as the Golden Master. It was earlier said that Apple will offer GM on September 23rd. The company would want all the developers to be using the public version by that stage.

Apple maybe lining up the  iOS 5 GM and the much-awaited iPhone 5 release this fall. The carriers’ approval maybe required for Apple to release the Golden Master on October 5th and put it in stores soon after that.

Apple is also working on merging iCloud support to Lion and there have been late betas of iWork apps for iOS and Apple TV as well.

So many things happening in the interiors of the Cupertino company, right? What do you have to say about all these moves?
