Apple Details Transition from MobileMe to iCloud

by TidBITS Staff

When Apple announced its new iCloud service, the future of many MobileMe features was up in the air. Now, the company has posted a MobileMe Transition page [1] with details. Several days ago, in “MobileMe-to-iCloud Transition Messaging Provokes Confusion [2]” (13 June 2011), we asked a whole passel of questions, supplemented by more from our readers. Let’s see how well Apple has answered those so far.

In the transition article, Apple distinguishes between two kinds of changes, those that take effect when you sign up for iCloud using an existing MobileMe account, and those that don’t take effect until 30 June 2012, when MobileMe effectively shuts down.

We’ll keep watching for answers to these questions.
