I have Snow Leopard (10.6.8) on my MacBook. I know the iCloud requirements are Lion 10.7.2 but it's not the same to just update my phone right?
What do you mean? If you have an iPhone 4 then you can upgrade to iOS5.
No, you'll need Lion 10.7.2 on your computer and iOS5 on your iPhone.
Sorry I meant aren't there certain system requirements need on the MacBook to install iOS 5?
Just that you have Snow Leopard to start.
So I will be able to update my phone having Snow Leopard? Is there anywhere it says this online?
iTunes 10.4.1 as far as anyone knows. It requires 10.5.8. If iTunes 10.5 is needed, then you will need Snow Leopard I think.
What is online you will find at www.apple.com.
I think I found my answer! Just scroll down to system requirements, since the 4s comes with iOS 5 installed: http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html
