iCloud and Migration from MobileMe Services Now Live


With iOS 5 and OS X 10.7.2 rolling out to users, Apple has officially flipped the switch to turn on iCloud for all users. The iCloud site lost its beta label earlier today and MobileMe users are now able to migrate their accounts to iCloud once they have upgraded their devices OS X 10.7.2 and iOS 5.


The migration process for MobileMe users will move Mail and Calendars to iCloud, and MobileMe users will continue to be able to use Gallery, iDisk and iWeb publishing through June 30, 2012 even though those services are not making the transition to iCloud. A number of syncing services that had been available for MobileMe, including Dashboard Widgets, Dock Items, Keychain, Mail Accounts, Mail Rules, Signatures, and Smart Mailboxes, and Mac OS X Preferences, will become unavailable immediately upon moving to iCloud.

This is a disgrace...!

I cannot upgrade my Mac to Lion as almost every plugin i use daily for work is incompatible with Lion... with no updates in sight!

Why on Earth is iCloud compatible with a older version of Windows (Vista) and not with a x.x.2 version old APPLE OS!!!!!!!

I use mobileme to sync my calendar with my iOS devices... does this mean i will have to find an alternative service to keep this sync alive??????

Truly disgusted Apple.

"Macs must be running 10.7.2"

Confirmed. No SL love. Shame.

Simple, they're trying to force you to use Lion which is a really bad policy IMHO.

Bitch about third-party vendors not updating their apps for Lion all you want but I have no pity. They had a long beta period and it's been out now for three months. They should have already updated their software.

I still cannot believe they dare to call this thing iCloud without any kind of iDisk support. Its a pity to still rely on DropBox

Seriously !!! Most companies still use XP. I use mobileme calendars in Outlook 2007 on my work computer so my personal agenda remains in sync between my iPhone, Macbook and work PC.
That's not going to be possible anymore... So, let me check :
- no more iDisk
- no more SL and Leopard
- no more Windows XP
- no more keychain
- no more iWeb

This looks like a huge, gigantic fail, doesn't it ?
