5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Apple surprised nearly every pundit who was breathlessly following its "Let's talk iPhone" event – it didn't introduce an iPhone 5.

The event, held on Apple's Cupertino campus in, spent over an hour and a half detailing iOS 5 and iCloud, which had both been described in great detail at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June, and introducing the widely expected iPhone 4S.

The iPhone 4S is an iPhone 4 on the outside – yes, including those problematic antennae – but "all new" on the inside, according to Apple's marketing chieftan, Phil Schiller, speaking at the event.

To be sure, there are many fine aspects to the iPhone 4S, and we'll report on them in detail in a later post, including the phone's new processor, camera, wireless technology, and a demo-impressive voice-recognition artificial intelligence assistant named Siri.

But we won't be giving you details about the new iPhone 5. There isn't one.

Yet. ®
