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.

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

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

Ok, this multiple account thing has been annoying for years, but now it's a real problem. I have a mm account that I haven't used to buy anything and two iTunes accounts (one is active, but I have some old purchases under the other). I need the email/contacts/calendar from my mm account but the media syncing from the other iTunes account. Losing either would make icloud pretty useless for me. I see there are others in this thread with this problem, and I'm sure many more. They really need to address this.

Although they could still add support in the future. And they will want to if there's enough public demand for it and adoption of iCloud is slow.

Not to mention if they don't support 10.6 they're not getting $25 annually for iTunes Match from any 10.6 users.


Lack of Snow Leopard support really makes this suck. I have all CD Intel machines, which effectively walls me out of this garden.

It sucks even more that I have been a .Mac/MobileMe subscriber for years.

I sent Tim Cook an email about my concerns, but have yet to receive a response. Not that I expected one...
