I tried to upadate my macbook pro to get iCloud on it to sync up with my iphone but it said that the system was up to date, even though iCloud comes with 10.7.2 (i think). how can i get iCloud?
It doesn't come with 10.7.2; it requires 10.7.2. So you must first upgrade to Lion through the Mac App Store (the purchase is $30), then use Software Update to get all the updates.
oh ok thanks. seems odd you have to pay to upgrade your mac to be able to use icloud and yet the iphone update is free... :/ thanks anyway
SO....If we was running Windows, we're able to download iCloud for free, however on a mac we have to pay the update to download Lion to use iCloud. Rubbish.
The OP is running 10.6.8 and is trying to update to 10.7.2. He first has to purchase Lion 10.7.2. It is not a free upgrade. If he had purchased 10.7 prior then 10.7.2 is a free update.
