MobileMe To iCloud Transition Details Made Available Online By Apple

Apple has published a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to answer all the customer queries regarding its forthcoming transition from Mobile Me to iCloud.

Cupertino, California-based Apple Inc., on Friday put an end to all speculations by informing that users will be able to access iCloud through web easily. The FAQ page is released merely 14 days after iCloud’s launch at its developers conference.

The page clearly informs that users will be able to access company’s latest cloud-based computing and storage service for their e-mails, contacts, bookmarks, calendar, find my Mac and Back to my Mac apps via web. Unfortunately, Apple’s iCloud will not host Mobile Me’s iWeb and iDisk apps as soon as the transition is made on June 30, next year.

In an answer to the future of files stored on iWeb, the company has advised users to move their data on any other host before the transition is complete, clarifying that iWeb’s end is very near.

"Syncing of Mac Dashboard widgets, keychains, Dock items, and System Preferences will not be part of iCloud, but will continue to be available for you to use until you move to iCloud," the company informed about the future of its iDisk app and other services offered by Mobile Me (opens in new tab).
