Apple announces iCloud Backup Reset on September 22nd, because of iCloud and iOS 5 iPhone Launch nearing . Apple has announced to developers that it will perform an iCloud Backup data reset on September 22nd.
This iCloud Backup is being reset as the access to iCloud was only allowed for the developers and they were working on testing the functionality of iCloud features and now when the product is near to maturity Apple will reset all the Backup data stored by Developers in order to prepare it for general public release.
iCloud Backup Reset : From Apple
On Thursday, September 22, the iCloud Backup data will be reset. Backing up to iCloud or restoring from an iCloud backup will be unavailable from 9 AM PDT – 5 PM PDT. If you attempt a backup or restore during this time, you will receive an alert that the backup or restore was not successful. After this reset, you will be unable to restore from any backup created prior to September 22. A full backup will happen automatically the next time your device backs up to iCloud.
As we all know that Apple is also planning to Launch the Next 5th Gen iPhone (iPhone 5) which is planned to Release in mid-october 2011. We believe Apple is performing this reset for the release of iOS 5 GM, which will be released around the same time of the iCloud Backup reset. iOS 5 GM will be the last release before iOS 5′s official debut in early October. via
