itunes v icloud what if..............


[link to this post]
 
Ok so I now start using icloud for my iphone 4 backup , then having had to format my computer I reload a clean copy of the latest itunes as one does.

Now should I purchase something via itunes and need to sync to it will it not now wipe my iphone as its syncing with a blank itunes , or for that matter I choose to backup for another software update mine says I cannot use the icloud for this ? same thing would happen a blank itunes would threrfore blank my phone to match?

I Cannot find the answer to this anywhere any ideas and links to back them up ?

TIA

iTunes knows that your iPhone is backed up to iCloud, and so assuming your computer has internet access, I believe it will work it all out.

You can also switch on auto-downloading on your iPhone so if you buy something on iTunes, the phone will download automatically. If you don't want this, you can use the "Purchased" tab which shows everything you've already downloaded on that account - on iTunes or another iOS device - and you can pull down a copy to the phone.

or for that matter I choose to backup for another software update mine says I cannot use the icloud for this ? same thing would happen a blank itunes would threrfore blank my phone to match?

Now you're on iOS 5 software updates to your iPhone are done on the phone, as long as you are on WiFi, under Settings->General -> Software update. Its reported they will be smaller than iOS 5 download as only the changes are sent down.

That's what the developers were reporting for the beta versions of iOS 5.

It maybe a silly question, but are you using Lion. iCloud doesn't work on anything less.

I loved Snow Leopard - my first MBP used it smile - and when Lion became available, I jumped on it, and took to it immediately.

It was the shocking price[s] of the Apple Mac OS'es that pleased me.
