My iPhone System Preferences includes MobileMe -icon, not iCloud. How to delete the Mobile -icon and get the iCloud there? Also calendar is not updating automatically in other Mac -devices.

    To use iCloud you must have iOS5 or above.

    In "System Pref."? Are you talking about your Mac? You said iPhone in your first post.


    What version of OS X is your Mac running. You need at least OS X 10.7.4

    To make use of iCloud you will have to upgrade your Mac to Lion or Mavericks, provided it meets the requirements.


    The requirements for Lion are:


    • Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor
    • 2GB of memory
    • OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
    • 7GB of available space


    Lion is available in the Online Apple Store ($19.99). Mountain Lion (10.8.x) is also available there at the same price but there seems little point as the system requirements are the same for Mavericks (10.9.x) - which is free - unless you need to run specific software which will run on Mountain Lion only.



    The requirements for Mountain Lion and Mavericks are:


    • OS X v10.6.8 or later
    • 2GB of memory
    • 8GB of available space


      and the supported models are:


    • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
    • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
    • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
    • Xserve (Early 2009)
    • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
    • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)


    It is available from the Mac App Store (in Applications).



      You should be aware that PPC programs (such as AppleWorks) will not run on Lion or above; and some other applications may not be compatible - there is a useful compatibility checklist at
