Apple has already begun testing both Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud for Lion beta 5, where this fifth pre-release version of the iCloud cloud computing service software will be battered left, right and under to make sure it is ready for a full commercial release with as little (or none) bugs where possible. This might come across as strange to some, since Apple requires developers to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 before they are able to take advantage of iCloud beta 5, but on the other hand Cupertino hasn’t provided any information of test builds of Mac OS X 10.7.1 to developers, leaving many scratching their heads.
According to developers, Apple told them that, “You must install OS X Lion 10.7.2 in order to use iCloud for OS X Lion beta 5. This pre-release version of OS X Lion is being provided solely for testing iCloud.”
Developers who have taken the step to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud beta 5 claim that the software updates Lion’s “Mail, Contacts & Calendars” control panel by throwing in iCloud management interface. The iCloud management interface will enable users to choose the kind of data forms that they want to synchronize to the cloud. We will just exhibit patience and hope that all goes well and is released, eventually.
