View Full Version : Using some iCloud features with 10.5.8

Oct 13, 2011, 11:33 AM
I have an iMac with 10.5.8 a couple of MacBooks with Lion, and a couple of iPhones and iPads that will have IOS 5.

It seems to me that I could set up iCloud with one of the MacBooks, or an iPhone or iPad. At this point I could sync my contacts and calendars. So I want to get these calendars and contacts to my iMac.

It seems that it should be as simple as just syncing one of the iPhones or iPads with the iMac using iTunes. I know this defeats the automatic syncing for that iMac, but it seems that it should work.

I just want basic syncing for the iMac, I don't care about automatic syncing for the iMac.

Anybody see any holes in this process?

You could try my method for syncing iCal in 10.6 and see if it'll work for the 10.5.8 iMac. It'd be interesting to see if it does work. I haven't figured out a way to get the Contacts to sync.
