iCloud Automatic Downloads Magically Appear In iOS 4

Even though Apple won’t fully launch iCloud until fall, signs of cloud syncing are beginning to magically appear. First it showed up in the app store, and last night ‘Automatic Downloads’ was implemented over the air in iOS 4.

Automatic downloads allow users to set preferences to have newly-purchased content such as music, apps, and books automatically pushed to other devices. Users have individual control over the three different media types and can also specify whether or not content pushing should be limited to Wi-Fi connections only in order to save cellular bandwidth.

Settings are available within the “Store” menu of the Settings application in iOS 4.3.
