9to5mac has just posted an interesting story saying that Apple Retail stores are beginning iCloud and iOS 5 training. This somewhat shows or points to a close release of iOS 5 and new iPhone hardware as Apple starts the next major iOS training near the actual iPhone hardware launch meaning if this is true we could see the new iPhone hardware or pre-orders somewhat earlier than the early mid October bit. 9to5mac has this story in detail go check it out.
You might have been one of the concerned people who was a little sketchy of being download only because there was thought to be no way to start from bootup disks like the past. Well thats not true. Well at least according to reports. The report says you will be able to bootup from an Apple dedicated Lion server and then you would be able to restore from a Time Machine backup or do a clean install. Also it is said Apple will have Mac Pro servers so you can connect to them at your local apple retail store and it would be a mater of minutes. This will be great for people who don’t have the fastest Internet in the world like me but I will still be downloading Lion right when it comes up hopefully tomorrow. I think all these servers are really cool and this is the way the future is going to be with operating systems.
