If you’re a developer and you’d like to find out more about transfering your old Mobileme Account to an iCloud account, then you’re in the right place since this article will teach you how to transfer your Mobileme Account to your iCloud.
You must know a few things before transfering your Mobileme account to iCloud and these relate to the fact that if you use services like Keichain, Mail accounts, Dock, smart mailboxes and signatures, Preferences, you will no longer be able to use them. These won’t be available after you transfer to iCloud. You must also know that you’ll be able to access your iWeb, Gallery and iDisk till Mobile me will be shut, that is June 2012.
Those who use Shared Calendars must know that they will have to share again the privately shared calendars with other users who transfered their Mobileme accounts to iCloud and publish the publicly shared calendars again because these will be unpublished.
Apple offers us a procedure that allows this transfer to be done, so here are the steps you have to follow in order to make this transfer:
- 1 The first thing to do is to log on to http://www.me.com/move/ and then log in to your Mobileme account by using your email adress and password.
- 2 Click on Get Started and make sure you confirm that the computer you’re using is on iCloud Control Panel for Windows beta 5, the iPod Touch/ iPad/iPhone on iOS 5 beta 5 and the Mac on OS X Lion 10.7.2 with iCloud for Lion beta 6.
- 3 After you’ve followed the first two steps, you will have to check and confirm that the Contacts and Bookmarks on your device are up to date and you will also have to back up your personal information and data just to be sure you don’t lose them. Once you’ve done this, click on the Move to iCloud button and that’s all.
Follow these simple steps and you’ll transfer your Mobileme account to iCloud in no time!
