While my last post on what happened at WWDC definitely clarified some points on the announcements made today, the big one I’m still getting is what is going on with MobileMe? Steve Jobs basically announced that MobileMe was no more (even declaring that it was “not our finest hour”) but for those of you that have been paying the $99/year, myself included, probably want to know what the deal is.
When you sign up for iCloud, you’ll be able to keep your MobileMe email address and move your mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.
Your MobileMe subscription will be automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After that date, MobileMe will no longer be available.
When iCloud is “officially” released, Apple will post more information on how to transition but mostly everything it being taken care of for you. Realistically, all that is going away is iDisk, but what you’re getting in replace of that is SO much more useful.
