7. iCloud Is Born
Apple got serious about its cloud strategy in 2011, and nowhere is that more evident than in iCloud. Apple's iCloud cloud storage and syncing play lets users store music, photos, apps, calendars, documents and more in the cloud and automatically wirelessly pushes that content to up to 10 devices. Unveiled by late Apple CEO Steve Jobs at WWDC 2011, iCloud also contains popular Apple apps including Calendar, Mail and Contacts. While iCloud's reviews have been mixed, Apple getting behind cloud computing is a major step and validates that the market has arrived.
