Here is a quick run through of what you can expect when you start the process of moving from MobileMe to iCloud.
This step-by-step process transitions your email, calendars, contacts and bookmarks to iCloud.
After updating to Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 you’ll have a new iCloud control panel in System Preferences.
You’ll log into the iCloud control panel with your Apple ID or MobileMe account ID.
You’ll be asked to move your MobileMe account mail, contacts, calendars and bookmarks to iCloud.
Here’s where the process to move to iCloud starts in your web browser.
Once the process starts the first few screens tell you about what is going to happen, etc.
If you are using MobileMe you’ll get to use Gallery, iDisk and iWeb until June 30th, 2012 after that you’ll have to find a replacement for these services.
Unfortunately there are a number of features that MobileMe supported that iCloud won’t. I’ll miss a few of these.
You’ll need to have Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 or higher running on your Macs and iOS 5 or higher on your favorite iDevices.
