I want to load the new Leopard OS system so I can move to iCloud.  I use a MacBook Pro and iPhone; however, I use Outlook for Mac to run my calendar and emails.  The first question to start the process is, "are all your devices compatible?"  Is my answer, Yes or No?


MacBook Pro, iOS 5.1

    You mention Leopard, that's two OSes back and is not compatible for iCloud.  Tell us which models of MacBook Pro and iPhone you have and exactly what OS each is using right now.

    OK, I realize I do not know what I am talking about.  But I will forge ahead with my current specs and the same question about whether or not my device is compatible with the iCloud?  I operate a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X version 10.6.8 and a 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5.  My phone is an iPhone that I purchased in July of 2010.  It was "the new phone" then that people were lining up to buy.  I believe it is an iPhone 4.  To try to clarify, it is not the latest iPhone with siri that speaks to you.  It is the version just before that one.  I think I need to up date the lap top OS to snow leopard or Lion before I can connect to iCloud. Is that right?  Also, will my Outlook for mac work and synch with my iPhone like it does so nicel with the OS up date?  Will Outlook for Mac synch with my phone once I move to iCloud?

    Yes, you'll need to update your MBP to Lion and phone to ios 5.  That will make them compatible with iCloud.

     

    I can't respond about outlook.
