Hardware and Software Requirements for icloud ?

In order to use iCloud, Apple required users to break with past operating systems and start anew with the latest versions of both their desktop (Mac OS X) and mobile (iOS) operating systems. iCloud also works on recent versions of Microsoft Windows, though many iCloud features work best with or require a Mac.
On the Mac, using iCloud requires that you be running Mac OS X 10.72 Lion or later (A). That means that iCloud on the Mac has the same hardware


requirements as Lion. A Mac requires an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 or Xeon processor. For portable machines, that includes most of the Intel-based MacBooks (excluding only the original 2006 model); MacBook Pro (if introduced after October 2006); and all models of the MacBook Air. For desktop machines, it includes the Mac mini (mid 2007 or later); iMac (after September 2006); and all versions of the Mac Pro. Your computer needs at least 2 GB of memory (as usual with a Mac, you’ll get better performance with more memory), and at least 7 GB of available storage space.

On an iOS device, you must be running iOS5 or later (B) (as I write this, iOS 5.0.1 has been released); iCloud comes free as part of iOS 5. In fact, much of the amazing things that you can do with iCloud are completely dependent on the features in iOS 5. In terms of hardware, most, but not all iOS devices are compatible with iOS 5. Any iPhone from the iPhone 3GS or later; any iPad; and the iPod touch 3rd generation or later can run iOS 5, and therefore use iCloud. The 2nd generation Apple TV, which is a modified iOS device, can use iCloud’s Photo Stream and iTunes Match services, but the original Apple Tv cannot.
On a Window PC, you can install the iCloud control panel on any version of Windows 7, or Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 or later.
On any platform, you can do some interaction with iCloud service with nothing more than a web browser (C). I’ll discuss the interaction on the iCloud website in each of the chapters that relates to that section of the website.
(A) On your Mac, you must be running Mac OS X Lion 10.72 or later to use iCloud.

(B) You’ll need to be using iOS 5 on your mobile devices to use iCloud features.
(C) The iCloud website allows you to access and work with much of your iCloud data.
