    Not sure if this has been answered elsewhere, couldn't find anything here.

    I have an iPhone running iOS 8, an iMac I am about to install Yosemite on, a 2008 Macbook stuck with Lion and an iPad 1 with iOS 5.

    Does anyone know what will happen to those devices not supporting iCloud Drive, but the old "Documents & Data" iCloud functionality. Will it entirely stop working on them? I'd like to know before I flip that switch. Apple has a support article, but does not mention what happens to such devices, just that they won't sync with iOS 8/Yosemite and as expected it advises to upgrade to latest OS.

    Switching on iCloud Drive in iOS 8 breaks iCloud for apps running versions of OS X before Yosemite - it warns you of that fact when you enable it

    Here's an Apple support document about it: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6312?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
