Devs Testing iCloud with Mac OS X 10.7.2
Apple rolls out the iCloud beta 5 together with the Mac OS X 10.7.2 to developers for testing.
Last Saturday, Apple tapped developers to test the fifth beta version of iCloud with the first external beta of Mac OS X 10.7.2. However, the big fruit requires devs to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 to use the iCloud 5. What’s odd is that the company is yet to reveal the test build information for Mac OS X 10.7.1.
As said by people familiar with the OS X 10.7.2 release, the operating system will not address the glitches found in last Wednesday’s market release of OX S Lion. It is also believed that the company will run a separate beta test for 10.7.1 in the days or weeks to come.
Developers who already installed the Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud beta 5 revealed that the software updates its ‘Mail, Contacts and Calendars’ control panel with the iCloud management interface. The new interface also offers storage management tools, backups and purchasing additional storage. However, the latter is said to be non-functional as of this time.
Apple aims to formally release iCloud for both OS X Lion and iOS 5 sometime this fall.View Article Source »
