Apple has launched iCloud to the public with iOS 5 and OS X 10.7.2 nowhere in sight. With the exception of those who got an iPhone 4S early, pretty much every Apple customer has their hands tied.
As the screenshot above shows, Apple requires that customers first set up iCloud on their iOS device or Mac.
The service requires iOS 5 and Mac OS X 10.7.2, none of which had been made available at the time of this writing.
Many expected Apple to launch at least Mac OS X 10.7.2 ahead of the October 12 iCloud debut. However, it appears that Cupertino is taking its time with the public release of the software requirements for iCloud.
iPhone 4S devices are the only ones currently equipped with all they need to access iCloud. The smartphone has been scheduled to reach end customers this Friday. Some, however, have received their units early.
