Switching to iCloud--Any Downside?

Post by Stephen Hart » Tue Oct 04, 2011 1:16 pm

Anyone noted any downside to turning on iCloud when it launches? From what I've seen, syncing should be seamless. (Of course, not all the items MobileMe can sync can be synced by iCloud, but mail, contacts and calendars can.)

It is pretty hard to know about actual downsides, since iCloud will still not be offically released for another week (October 12).

The only currently known downsides are the lack of support for iWeb website publishing and what we have come to know as iDisk.

After next week, much more will be known about iCloud ... but iCloud will sync much of your current content among all of your 10.7 Macs, as well as your iPhone (3GS, 4, or 4S), iPad (1 or 2), and iPod Touch (3rd or 4th Gen). Actually, you will also be able to use iCloud from any Vista or Windows 7 PC.

Note that iTunes v 10.5 is also required on either a Mac or PC.

The icons below suggest what content iCloud will sync:
