Cannot determine if my Macbook operating system is capable of being upgraded. Would like to upgrade to eventually upgrade the operating system in my iPhone 4, back it up on the cloud, and then migrate all of that to my iPhone 5. But I need to upgrade my laptop first.

MacBook, iOS 5.1.1

    It's been pulled from the online store & Apple Stores, so you have to call Apple to buy it, last I heard.

    Call Apple Sales...in the US: 1-800-MY-APPLE. Or Support... 1-800-275-2273
