Apple Seeds OS X Lion 10.7.2 Build 11C48 and iCloud Beta 10 to Developers


Apple today pushed out new test builds of OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud for OS X developers, continuing to quickly move forward with testing of iCloud. As with the previous interval, the updates come exactly one week after the previous seeds.

Unlike last week's release, there is no new beta of iPhoto 9.2 in today's set of seeds. There also appear to be no new developer releases on the iOS side, with Apple having released the seventh beta of iOS 5 just two days ago.

We've yet to hear about any specific changes in the latest seeds, but Apple has been asking developer to target AirPort, AppKit, GraphicsDrivers, iCal, iChat, Mac App Store, Mail, Spotlight, and Time Machine with the last several builds of OS X 10.7.2.

Apple has announced that it will be launching iOS 5 and iCloud this fall, and the company has been rumored to be launching new iPhone hardware in early-to-mid October, with iOS 5 and iCloud should be going live right around that same time. Apple earlier this week began developer testing on iTunes Match, a paid service that stores all of a user's music in the cloud for access from any Internet-connected iOS device or computer.

Thanks, Chanyoon!

Apple still cares about iChat? I thought they pretty much abandoned it in favor of FaceTime.


I'm still waiting for them to integrate these two somehow. It seems almost stupid to have two separate apps on a Mac.

I really wish iMessage would be more like iChat too. I'm somewhat disappointed with it. You can't even message other iChat users with it (such as with a MobileMe email address).

I'm really hoping 10.7.2 has more fixes in it than iCloud support.

Be nice if Lion just allowed Wi-Fi to work without the now infamous drops


Infamous ? I have no problems with WiFi.

Why would think that? Can you instant message, attach AIM, and have a group conversation in Facetime? Learn to common sense.

a la Skype would be wonderful. The video quality with FT is much better than Skype for me; the ability to be an all-in-one communicator is still holding me to Skype.

Any word about bringing back Spaces functionality in this update? Too much to hope for? :rolleyes:


You're joking, right? Go into Mission Control and click the plus-button in the upper right corner.

I hope 10.7.2 has some serious bug fixes in it and is a large release. There are tons of polish problems in Lion and some pretty nasty bugs I can't believe made it past QA.

I like Lion and think it points to an exciting future. But it needs some serious fit and finish work.

If you are having issues with your WIFI then please tell the forum what your hardware specifications are and the setup you have in your home - simply whining about something with no context tells me you're more interested in whining than actually looking for a solution.


Hey don't tell me I'm "whining" about the Lion Wi-Fi issue just because it's not affected you, because you're connected by ethernet, or because you've been lucky and/or living under a rock.

Try taking a look at the 46 pages of this (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3191630?start=0&tstart=0) Apple discussion, or the 35 pages here (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3190651?start=0&tstart=0), or here (https://discussions.apple.com/message/15831008#15831008), or here (https://discussions.apple.com/message/15834886#15834886), or here (https://discussions.apple.com/message/15862249#15862249), and many other places too.

I just bought a 27-inch 3.4 GHz iMac, and it's great, except that Wi-Fi doesn't work without dropping every few minutes, or seconds, even. Turns out it's a Lion bug.

Basically, if you're getting the evil Lion Wi-Fi drop, the best current workaround is to use Terminal to ping someplace, or just your router, every second, to keep the connection alive (though even that doesn't work sometimes). There's a lot of people waiting for the Lion update that will hopefully fix this maddening issue, oh yes and "whining" about it, too.
