Apple has announced CloudKit, a new way for developers to create cloud apps. Apple takes responsibility for the server-side elements of apps. This leaves developers with a greatly simplified client-side development experience.

This means developers should not have to worry about managing servers for their iOS apps. Apple handles everything for free, with some limits. For instance, apps can store up to a petabyte of assets on Apple’s servers. Other rate-limits come into play at large scales.
