iCloud will now be integrated with the App Store, so all of your purchases will appear on all of your devices at the same time (depending on the available space on your device of course.) This will make things very convenient, especially if you canít get to a computer.
Not only will iCloud sync all of your apps, but it will also sync all of your iBook purchases as well. Contacts and calendars will now be updated across all devices with iCloud as well.

Once a day, "a lot of your important content" will be updated to the cloud.
