Apple is very busy this week, as is evident by their release of iOS 5, iCloud.com, iWork updates, new apps like Find My FriendsAirPort Utility, and more.

Just moments ago, Apple pushed out OS X Lion 10.7.2, which implements iCloud directly into OS X.

iCloud is Apple’s flagship cloud service, which will allow you to push contacts, bookmarks, email, and more directly to all of your iOS devices wirelessly..

Here is the information from Apple’s update:

  • The 10.7.2 update is recommended for all OS X Lion users and includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac. It also includes support for iCloud, a breakthrough set of free cloud services that automatically and wirelessly store your content on iCloud and push it to all of your devices. iCloud on OS X Lion includes the following features:
  • iCloud stores your email, calendars, contacts, Safari bookmarks, and Safari Reading List and automatically pushes them to all your devices.
  • Back to My Mac provides remote access to your Mac from another Mac anywhere on the Internet.
  • Find My Mac helps find a missing Mac by locating it on a map and allows you to remotely lock the Mac or wipe all its data.

Getting started with iCloud is easy. After installing the update, OS X will automatically present an iCloud setup panel. Simply enter an existing Apple ID or create a new one and then follow the on screen instructions. To learn more about iCloud visit http://www.apple.com/icloud.

Obviously, this is big for iDevice owners, especially for those updating to iOS 5 today. It’s all coming together folks, and the iPhone 4S release on Friday is the cherry on top.

Have you updated yet?

  • I am a developer and want to upgrade from my 10.7.2 beta (11C26) release to public release, but software update shows no updates available for me. I want to upgrade to public release, is there any way to do it?

    • Honestly, I couldn’t tell you. I’m iOS only. Can anyone else chime in on this?

      if you have downloaded the GM from the developer website this is normally the same release as the public get.

      if you really want to get the public version then try and find some direct links for it (remember Google is your friend) or try apples website
