Mac OS X 10.7.2 brings iCloud to your computer
Alongside the OS 5 update rolled out by Apple for all iPhone and iPad users, Apple has also rolled out an update for its desktop operating system - Mac OS X Lion.
Moving on to version 10.7.2, the update, which is recommended for all OS X Lion users includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.
More importantly however, it also includes support for iCloud, the company’s new cloud-based back up service.
That means you’ll be able to back up your email, calendars, contacts, Safari bookmarks, and Safari reading list and automatically pushes them to all your devices without doing a thing.
There is also"Back to My Mac" that provides remote access to your Mac from another Mac anywhere on the Internet, and like the iPhone "Find My Mac" that helps find a missing Mac by locating it on a map and allows you to remotely lock the Mac or wipe all its data as long as it is connected to the Internet.
The 10.7.2 update also includes Safari 5.1.1 as well as fixes that:
- Allow reordering of desktop spaces and full screen apps in Mission Control.
- Enable dragging files between desktop spaces and full screen apps.
- Address an issue that causes the menu bar to not appear in full screen apps.
