Windows XP Users Will Not Be Able to Use iCloud

Posted by · 11881 views · Translate

The worlds most popular operating system, Windows XP, will not be compatible with iCloud. Per the company's press release, using iCloud with a PC requires Windows Vista or Windows 7. While iTunes 10.3 and MobileMe both include Windows XP in the support list, it looks like Apple is shifting support away from the older OS.

Using iCloud with a PC requires Windows Vista or Windows 7; Outlook 2010 or 2007 is recommended for accessing contacts and calendars.

Considering backwards-compatibility for iTunes 10.3 only goes back four years to OS X 10.5, it is rather surprising to see the ten year old OS, XP, has even stayed on the list as long as it has.

If you are still on Windows XP and plan on using iCloud, will you be upgrading to Windows Vista or 7?

Uhm, first of all, iCloud is free, you only have to pay (if you want) for Music Match (the thing that scans your library and auto-enables, if found, all your music on the clouds, without the need to upload). Second, Google does not haves an iCloud, they have \"Music beta\". I don\'t where the heck you are been reading your news lately...

Oh no, MobileMe is closed and is not receiving more subscriptions, so, it\'s dead. iCloud will be free. You only have to pay IF YOU WANT Music Match, 25 bucks yearly.

To be honest, I think most of the people who will use icloud have vista, 7 or osx. However (this isn\'t really related to icloud) xp is the only operating system I\'ve seen in schools. Mostly on computers as old as the os itself.
