Apple has unveiled the new iCloud service at a morning keynote which kicked off the WWDC 2011 show. The new product actually retires Apple’s $99 a year MobileMe services suite. If you’re among a couple of hundred thousand subscribers, you may wanna check out a new support document outlining things to know as this transition takes place. The document reads,
Effective June 6, 2011, if you had an active MobileMe account, your service has been automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After this, the MobileMe service will no longer be available.
There are a couple things you should be aware of…
Following the transitiuon, all your MobileMe mail, contacts and calendars will be moved to iCloud and you will retain your me.com or mac.com email address, Apple promises. MobileMe Family and storage upgrades won’t be available after today. Additionally, you can no longer create a new MobileMe account or start a two-month trial after June 6, 2011 (yes, today). People with unused activation codes obtained with a MobileMe box purchase can submit a refund request here
