Apple CEO Tim Cook offered up details on how iCloud is doing at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference. iCloud was one of several topics Cook talked about during the conference. He also talked about working conditions at factories building Apple products in China along with the philosophy of Apple. Cook gave up a few tidbits about iCloud that were very interesting.
He announced that the cloud based syncing service has over 100 million users currently. Last month Cook announced the service had 85 million users. Simple math shows that in the 21 days since Cook announced the 85 million number, Apple has added 15 million new users to iCloud. Apple considers the cloud service to be a long-term strategy for the future.
Cook calls iCloud a “strategy for the next decade” for Apple. Clearly, Cupertino has big plans for the future that involve the cloud service. iCloud is deeply integrated into Apple iOS 5 and is compatible with the iPhone starting with the 3GS. What do you think the future holds for iCloud?
