  • Apple's iCloud Service Released - MobileMe Migration Ready

    Apple’s iCloud recently just went live for everyone! All you need to do is to enter your current login details and you will be prompted to upgrade the MobileMe account to iCloud (if you had one). The site for iCloud (http://iCloud.com) just went live as well as it no longer says beta and has a new login screen.

    The Cupertino giant has also released the MobileMe to iCloud migration page (http://MobileMe.com/move), which will allow users MobileMe users to migrate data from their MobileMe account to iCloud. The migration process will allow users to move content such as Mail, Contacts, and Calendar data to their iCloud account.

    If you previously used other MobileMe services such as iWeb, iDisk, and Photo Gallery it is important to note that these services will not be migrated, instead they will be discontinued after June 30, 2012. You will be unable to sync the Mac Dashboard widget, Dock items, keychains, signatures, mail account rules, mail smart boxes, and mail preferences. Just keep all this in mind so you can set everything up and backup/migrate anything that won’t be automatically transferred over to your iCloud account.

    Once you migrate to iCloud, MobileMe users get 25GB of storage (the 20GB of storage that came with the yearly plan for MobileMe subscribers) along with 5GB of storage for free (which is offered to all iCloud users). For those of you who previously purchased MobileMe, the migration process won’t incur any extra cost until June 30, 2012. For those of you who are creating your iCloud account and did not have MobileMe, you will be entitled to 5 GB of free after creating an account.

    If you come to the conclusion that your 5GB (or 25GB for MobileMe subscribers) isn't enough storage space, you can purchase additional storage space for an annual fee. According to Apple, three storage plans are available: 10GB will cost $20 per year; 20GB will cost $40 per year; and 50GB will cost $100 per year.

    Apple already released iTunes 10.5 and iOS 5 is expected to be released later in the day along with Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iWork for iOS. Speculation says that iOS 5 will possibly drop at 10:00AM Pacific (1:00PM Eastern) but the quickest way to find out will be to stay tuned here at MMi.

    Are you guys excited for iCloud? What about all the other software being released today? Share your thoughts and opinions below!

      I opened both at the same time and it still tells me that iCloud is beta. Even after I cleared my history. I guess Ill have to wait, they are probably releasing it a little at a time so it doesn't crash and freeze up.

      I'm thinking this is different but I tried the beta iTunes match and on my second computer it gives an error when trying to download a majority of the songs.

      What if my wife and I both have iPhone 4Ss and we share a Mac Pro and an iMac. How will iCloud manage data on the computers from two different phones?

      You must have either 10.7.2 or iOS 5 installed with your MobileMe account in order to move. If you do not have one of these you will continue to get the developer message.

      Im also interested in knowing if there is a way to have iCloud sub accounts... me and my wife use the same apple ID so we can share apps between our devices. But we would really prefer not to share the cloud... we dont want to sync eachothers emails, contacts and such. Is there anything we can do?

      You should each have your own apple id for iCloud. You can still share the ID you are currently using for apps and such. iCloud accounts can create shared calendars.

      The only thing i don't like about iCloud is there is no way to view your Photo Stream on iCloud.com. Seems like you should have a place to globally manage your photos but you don't. There is no way to delete a photo out of the Photo Stream folder on your iDevice as far as I can tell. That's not going to be good.

      Edit: The workaround is to clear all your stored photos from the iCloud.com web page then turn your Photo Stream off... it will ask you to delete all the pictures.. say yes.. then turn it back on and it's clear.
