    Apple today pushed out several new developer seeds for its OS X platform, continuing to move forward with testing of iCloud. The updates come one week after the previous seeds, which also came alongside the sixth beta version of iOS 5. Among today's new releases for OS X:

    - OS X Lion 10.7.2 Update (Build 11C43)
    - iCloud for Lion beta 9
    - iPhoto 9.2 beta 3

    There are no new updates posted on the iOS side at this time.

    Apple has announced that it will be launching iOS 5 and iCloud this fall. The company has been rumored to be launching new iPhone hardware in early-to-mid October, and iOS 5 and iCloud should be going live right around that same time. Apple will almost certainly be holding a media event a week or two ahead of that launch to introduce the new hardware and give final details on iOS 5 and iCloud.

    Thanks, Chanyoon!

    I am too. Everyone should remember you will need Lion for iCloud and the latest versions of iWork and iLife to use it.

    I dunno they been testing it lion exclusive but i can't see them not giving some form of update to at least snow leopard, or IOS 4. going to be kind of unforgiving when they close the doors to mobileme mail, syncing, bookmarks etc for so many devices that cant run lion or ios5. remember mobile me is going away completely. So i can see some small update to migrate the mobile me code in the older OS's to at least support some of the functionality (probably not all of it, just whatever mobileme users lose that they need to get from cloud, bookmarks, mail, contacts.

    it would be very poor business to go "oh btw now you HAVE to upgrade your hardware to use features you always have. Alhough I woudln't be surprised either way. I however have an iphone 3G and a first gen macbookpro intel core duo that's not 64 bit and cannot run lion or ios 5. then i have a newer mac pro that's on lion. The idea that icloud would be completely useless to me cause other devices are stuck on discontinued mobileme service would really make me lose faith. As it'd be a minimal software update. not a complete super update. to maintain the transition of mobileme.

    Mobile Me Apple would have already shipped iCloud in back in July. The new Apple is spending more time testing it.

    What happens to MobileMe customers who don't have a machine that can run Lion? Will I still be able to use Mail and Back To My Mac?

    Can't wait for the iPhoto update that will let me use the three-finger swipe without crashing...

    Address Book interface fixed?

    Is the horrid Address Book interface fixed? Do they provide an option to use the old 3 column system?

    My exact problem. I am set with iCloud, but my son still uses my old iPhone3 and has an old powerpc mini that is running leopard. I would believe it can't be too hard for them to have some sort of backwards compatibility for at least the mail, contacts and calendar functionality.

    Well, on older hardware you can always visit iCloud.com and access all your stuff over there.

    Why will I need iWork and iLife? I just want iCal/Mail services.

    You'll still be able to use MobileMe until June2012. After that, I guess it would mean a new Mac capable of running Lion to begin using the iCloud features.

    sorry, but Apple says no

    Apple has removed the compatibility subsystem for older applications from Lion.

    They want you to buy new systems and new software.

    They have an unexpected new expense - a CEO with a salary!

    I've not tried it but under advanced settings on iCloud.com you are given a list of server details which it says is for devices which can't automatically set iCloud up.

    It gives IMAP, SMTP, CalDav and Conatcts server details, so you should be able to use them on Leopard/Snow Leopard.

    I believe that all three statements are true, but not necessarily related. ;)

    In the context of the quoted message it's complete bs.

    It's coming very soon. The duration between betas is so short. And fall with the iTunes even is right around the corner!

    Still testing Airport I see. The last 10.7.1 update didn't fix my Lion induced Wi-Fi woes. Hoping this will.

    Sorry, I thought that CS3 and 2008 had PowerPC components or installers.
