Apple Starting To Prepare For iCloud Launch

Posted In Apple news - By Ben On Monday, July 25th, 2011 With 0 Comments
Just a few days after the launch of OS X 10.7 (I got it right this time!) Apple has seeded to developers OS X version 10.7.2 – yes, that’s right – they skipped 10.7.1, and it seems nobody is entirely sure why – though it might just be a bugfix coming in the next few weeks.

Why the sudden update, just a few days after the initial release? Surely they can’t have fixed all the major bugs people are clamoring about. But the truth has been revealed – OS X 10.7.2 is the update that brings the major iCloud features coming with iOS 5 into play.

What exactly does it bring? Mostly just support for syncing your mail, contacts, calenders, and bookmarks up into iCloud – and, of course, access to those files from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch for those running the iOS 5 beta.

With the iOS 5 and iCloud release just a few more months down the road, there’ll be plenty more Beta’s for us to pour over, and with the release of the iPhone 5 – hopefully in September – maybe even a few secret new features will be added. Stay tuned for more iCloud and iOS 5 news in the next few weeks!
