The UK’s Telegraph newspaper reports today that the UK will not be getting iTunes in iCloud until at least Q1 of 2012. According to a spokesman for the Performing Rights Society (PRS), negotiations with Apple to secure rights for composers, songwriters and music publishers in the UK had only just started.

“The licensing team at the PRS have started talks with Apple, but are a long way off from any deals being signed,” the spokesman told the Telegraph. “It is very much the early stages of the negotiations and is similar to the launch of iTunes – which began in the US and took a while to roll out to other countries.”

The Telegraph also spoke to a music executive at a major record label, who asked to remain anonymous, who concurred with the PRS spokesman’s statement that talks between the interested parties have only just begun, adding that “no one expects to see the cloud music service live on this side of the pond until 2012.”

Some features are available on 4.3.3 like your purchase history in the app store. My wife's 3GS also got a notification a couple seconds after I downloaded an app the other day.

There are lots more icloud features available on the iOS 5 beta...

Ohh I see. Because I wanted to get the hole iCloud and the apple web site told me that they will notify me via email went the iCloud will be available. But I do have the apps purchased history in the app store.
