Apple confirmed that the cloud service will be called “iCloud,” similar to its other product names.

Used to be, you could forget your feature phones charger at home, go on a long-weekend vacation, and–assuming that you didnt use it to play hours of Snake–still come home with enough battery life left on it to call a cab.
