Apple seeded Mac OS X 10.7.2 beta to developers with support for the beta version of iCloud incorporated directly into the build and the pre-release version, labeled build 11C55, does not require a separate install of iCloud services. Apple has begun transitioning user accounts from MobileMe to iCloud, the last beta release of Mac OS X 10.7.2 came on Sept. 2 and included the 10th test version of iCloud as a separate install. Apple has not included another iPhoto beta with heightened Photo Stream compatibility in this release and developers have seen a steady stream of beta software as Apple gears up for several major releases this fall……………..
Apple has released a new beta version of OS X 10.7.2 to developers and this version is build 11C55 and is a new version of the Lion update that supports iCloud features. It is being provided for developers in order to allow them to test iCloud features like integration with iOS devices and iWork apps as well as their own third-party apps. These changes will allow the built-in Mail client, for example, to sync properly with iCloud’s email service and this new build should contain nothing more than bug fixes when compared to the previous builds. This update also appears to roll the iCloud beta package into the OS X Lion update, as a separate download for iCloud beta is no longer available. The last update to OS X Lion and iCloud for Mac came on the second, although that release also included an iPhoto update, while this one does not. This update provided solely for the purpose of testing iCloud features and is not an official update build. If you’ve installed any previous versions of 10.7.2, you have to revert back to 10.7 using the supplied tool before you update. iCloud for Lion will integrate with the various features of iCloud.com including Find My iPhone, Mail, Calendars and iWork. iOS 5 is the next major revision to Apple’s software for iPhone, iPod, Apple TV and iPad devices. The new OS is slated for release in the fall of this year.
