OS X 10.7.2 released

| Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

To compliment the arrival of iOS 5 and to get your Mac ready to rock with iCloud, OS X 10.7.2 has been released.

OS X 10.7, also known as Lion, has received its second point update since its release in July this year. The most significant change with the 10.7.2 update is the integration of iCloud compatibility. As mentioned many times before, iCloud is an online storage system that allows users to access transparent “cloud-based” backups of their music, photos and files, thus sharing them with any and all iCloud-ready devices if they so wish. Other features abound:

OS X also includes “Back to My Mac” , which allows users to remotely access their Mac as they wish, and “Find My Mac”, which assists in locating it on a map in the event that it’s lost or stolen and, if desired, to wipe the contents of the drive.

This is not a major update for OS X in the way that iOS 5 is, though both are released today (together with the iCloud software) to dovetail functionality with one another and create an interlocking suite of complimentary software.

You can grab OS X 10.7.2 by opening the Software Update control panel and checking for updates there.
