Mac OS X Lion and iTunes May Get iCloud before iOS 5
Your Mac may see iCloud support before your iDevice does.
iOS 5 was announced to be rolling out this week on Wednesday, October 12. Along with iOS 5 comes iCloud, an integrated system that allows you to move your information back and forth between your devices. iCloud will allow you to share photos, documents, calendars, and numerous other forms of information that you use to manage your day. Right now, iCloud is in Golden Master status with iOS 5 Golden Master, iCloud for Windows Golden Master, and Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 Combo Golden Master.
According to a Japanese blog, Macotakara
, iCloud for Mac OS X Lion is expected to become available for Mac users Monday or Tuesday of this week; one or two days before iOS 5 comes out.
It's unknown whether or not it will require you to update Mac OS X Lion to version 10.7.2 to use iCloud, although developers have been test-driving iCloud in the Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 Golden Master, and betas before that. These pre-releases have been compatible with the beta and Golden Master versions of iOS 5.
This Wednesday we will certainly see iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2, iTunes 10.5, and iCloud for Windows.
