iCloud Beta Included in Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 Beta

A new version of Mac OS X rolled out on Sunday evening to developers. The new version is 10.7.2 and with it, iCloud has been included. Although iCloud has been available on the beta versions of Mac OS X for a few weeks now, this is the first time that it has been included in to the OS rather than via another install package.

With iOS 5 just around the corner we expect that iCloud on the Mac is almost finished and ready to go. When it launches there will be support for Address Book, iCal, Mail, Safari as well as MobileMe.

The reason iCloud is being made available is so that developers can more easily test integration with the iCloud service on iOS devices. As well as integrating the above official apps, developers will also be able to test using iCloud on their own apps so that when iOS 5 and the next Mac OS X update arrives, the apps will be ready for launch.
