OS X Lion 10.7.2: Need to know before release (Update Now Live)

On September 22, 2011 Apple made a beta seed of Mac OS X 10.7.2 available for developers. It is thought that this will be needed in order to download iOS 5 with iCloud. There is no report from Apple that this is needed, but why would developers be given the choice to use it? However, we have reason to believe that some of the features of iCloud need to have the update.

Now we have no idea if and when the update will take place, it could either be today or tomorrow. iTunes 10.5 has already been made available for download, so the smart money would be on tomorrow — that’s saying it’s is needed of course. Just last week Apple released 10.7.2 GM, which Computerworld says is the equivalent of Windows RTM.

This is a very clear sign that it will be needed ahead of iOS 5; trust Apple to never inform us of this. If it does come tomorrow, then we can see Apple’s servers come under a huge strain, although we do know that they will now be using their new data center, which should be more than up to the task — well so we assume.

For iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 owners who use Windows instead of Mac, then you need to make sure that you have Vista or Windows 7. Below we have a widget for you, which will keep you updated with tweets to let you know when OS X Lion 10.7.2 has become available for download. Once you know then you can just check for an update if it does not automatically do so.

Update: OS X Lion 10.7.2 has just gone live.
