Developers Can Transition to Apple’s iCloud Now

| News

While general users can’t do so yet, people who are Apple Developer Program members can begin migrating their MobileMe accounts to Apple’s new iCloud service, which is expected to see wide release this fall. Even after the migration, users will still have access to their MobileMe Gallery, iDisk, and iWeb publishing through June 30, 2012, according to PCWorld.

The migrations are happening through me.com/move, where users need to enter their Apple IDs and passwords. If non-developers attempt to use iCloud now, they see an ineligibility message.

iCloud will offer 5GB of free storage to all users when it launches, with additional space available for a fee. It will keep data in sync between users’ PCs or Macs and their iOS devices.

This may not apply to anyone else but my ancient Apple ID is simply an ID, not an email address, which precludes me from using iCloud because it insists on an email address. Guess I’ll have to look into changing my Apple ID.
