iCloud Debut For OS X Lion
With so many releases in the market, Apple is ready for yet another release of an update for the Mac OS X on the 12th of October of the ongoing year. The latest update is the company’s latest iCloud app, its latest online backup and online synchronization service for the Mac OS X Lion.
This announcement was made on Tuesday that the iCloud application will debut exactly after a week from now on all the cell phone devices that are running on the technology of iOS 5 and Macs latest and popular operating system, the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Although, the company, itself, did not confirmed it publicly that the Mac Lion requires up gradation in order to process the functioning of the iCloud, but, the developers and experts have been testing the application on the OS X 10.7 version which is an unreleased edition.
On the previous day of the announcement, the company came out to issue a Gold Master or GM build of 10.7.2 for its developers. The term can be defined as a name or label used by some of the developers, or as Microsoft calls it “release to manufacturing” or RTM. The concept backing the label are those finished applications that are considered to be ready for the dispatching of the same to the developers and duplicators, or, when talking specifically from Apple’s point of view – for release to public.
Moreover, the notes that were provided with the Gold master of Mac OS X 10.7.2 clearly states that no known issues have been detected in the running of the application on Lion which means that the company is providing a green light zone for the release of it subsequently.
The launching of the Mac app is being done on the similar day on which the iOS 5 is being released by the company and two days prior for the release of iPhone 4s. this timeline is similar to the one in the year 2008, when the company release MobileMe, predecessor of iCloud, which was just days before on the date of sale of the latest smartphone of that year, the iPhone 3G.
The launching of the MobileMe came out with many mixed reactions. It was the time when the service did not simply even touched the ground when it got stumbled up. The transition process was designed to complete in a few minutes but, ended up to take the entire day out which also resulted in the locking up of the Mac users accounts. After several days, complaints related to the application were lodged by its users which was humbly answered with an apology and asked for a 30-day period to resolve the issue out, after which the company managed to resume the confidence of the users back into its products. The issue prevailed for a period of 11 days after it was termed as completely restored and fit for public use.
The Chief Executive officer, Steve Jobs, in a later address o the employees, stated that the release of MobileMe was simply not of the standard that Apple maintains and immediately replaced the vice president responsible for the flaw in the application with Eddy Cue, who is also now the demonstrator of the of the iCloud application at the at the unveiling of the iPhone 4S.
About the application, Apple said that it has the capacity of running only on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, because it is the only Mac version of the company which has the ability to power approximately 22 percent of all Mac OS X that went out on the Web in the month of September.
The iCloud application is free to use for all Lion and iOS 5 users which was not made a part for MobileMe application. The package is inclusive of 5GB free online storage and is best to be served as a photo, music, applications, documents and other data synchronization services that are used in keeping the multiple devices up-to-date. Moreover, the users can also have additional space if they require by paying an additional amount as subscription fees. The update of 10.7.2 is expected to get released via its usual manual download center and Software update channels.
