Mac OS X 10.6.9 May Bring iCloud Support to Snow Leopard

Mac OS X 10.6.9 and iCloud

An upcoming release of Mac OS X 10.6.9 may bring iCloud support to Mac users who haven’t made the jump to Lion and remain on Snow Leopard, at least that’s what a screen shot provided to MacRumors suggests. Sent in by a developer, the screenshot of the .Mac/MobileMe preference pane includes the text:

“iCloud requires a computer running Mac OS X Snow Leopard v10.6.9 or later for Contacts, Calendars, and Bookmarks.”

The extent of iCloud support in Mac OS X 10.6 remains to be seen, but from the latter part of that text it suggests it will be limited to basic syncing relevant to iOS devices rather than the full iCloud feature set.

iCloud is expected to be released this fall alongside iOS 5, and the pricing plans range from a free 5GB package to $100 a year for 55GB of cloud storage.

    I will lose too many older apps if I go with Lion so staying with Snow, iCloud be damned.
