Photo belies the claim.

The previous update to 10.7.1 was actually a delta update coming in at 17MB for my MacBook Pro.

is the new data center in NC pushing out billions of bytes to all of us trying to update Lion, iTunes, iPads and iPhones. If it survives today it is truly hardened.

Anyone else having problems with 10.7.2? I installed the update and have been looking at a grey screen with the black spinning wheel for at least 30 minutes now... any advice?

Info please? What kind of Mac? Were you updating from 10.7.1? Combo update or via Software Update?

Maybe I'm missing the point of the web interface of iCloud. No photo icon to view the PhotoStream via the web? No way to view documents except if you've purchased Pages / Numbers / Keynote? How about I buy their 50GB package - how do I store videos / PDF's on there for viewing anywhere?

I love the idea of everything syncing and being available on all devices but it seems rather limited in terms of choosing what you can store.

Yep, sorry- Late 2009 MBP Updating from 10.7.1 via software update- the grey wheel was just spinning for close to an hour. I finally just rebooted and it worked itself out, although it took several minutes to restart the second time.

25 Mb/s ftth connection, and it is saying 3 hours to download updates.

How can you want your stuff in iCloud if they can't manage this update????

Somebody's a shouter. Little man, big font, perhaps?

You're right. You don't want your stuff in the cloud. If I were you, I wouldn't use it. Luckily for me, Im not you. And I love it.

Then we see that Apple is supporting iCloud in Vista, so that's just insult added to injury.

It is, indeed. Of the six machines in use in my family, four are in 10.6.8, and two in 10.7.

It is really stupid on Apple's part if they don't address this soon. iCloud (not even including all the problems being reported by those with iOS devices) will be one massive fail, at least initially.

This is what it all seems like to me too.

So far, things seem a bit disjointed and poorly coordinated/explained.

Let's seriously hope that this sort of thing does not become associated with the Tim Cook era. People exaggeratedly remember (and associate) such snafus.

Thanks. I was hoping it wasn't just me.

I really like the web version of iCloud - there just needs to be more there. I mean, doesn't it make sense to be able to view the photos already there?

I know they're getting rid of iDisk but hopefully there's something that can replace it - I'd sign up for their highest plan immediately if I had a feeling I could use it. I just don't see any need or actually, a way to use it, other than backing up my iPhone / iPad etc. in the cloud. I'd store a large chunk of my photo library on there.

I have tons of PDF's and videos and other file formats I'd like to see available and stored on there too, just no way to upload them.

Edit - also, it sucks not being able to delete individual photos out of your photo stream. Take a photo on your iPhone that you don't want on all your devices? I've yet to find a way to delete an individual photo without resetting the entire stream, then turning off photo stream to delete the pictures on each device, then turning it back on.

Does the combo update contain the lion recovery update? Or do I have to separately download it too? Thanks for reply!!

My thoughts precisely. I have the first-gen MacBook that can't be upgraded past Snow Leopard (a Core Duo I gots; a Core 2 Duo I needs).

I updated to 10.7.2 and now iChat doesn't work for me. It keeps telling me iChat can't communicate with the account "AIM"

Anyone else having issues with iChat?

EDIT: Fixed it! You need to go into iChat Preferences, then Server Settings and uncheck the box next to Use SSL.

On the MacBook Pro however it says 3 hours to go...
Edit: I think it is getting slower so I cancelled it.

Well it picked up speed shortly after, and ended up finishing the download in about 20-30 min.

I think Apple wants to ring out their new data center. It would be nice if we could download a package with 10.7.2, iOS 5, iPhoto, recovery HD and take it to all the computers I'll have to update

The iCloud works pretty well for what it does so far. I don't have a iOS device yet to test it (Friday) but you can log on at iCloud.com and see that changes you make on your Mac are there.

One thing that I can't seem to fix: I logged onto iCloud and there was a chance to get a @me.com email. I filled that in and the email setup automatically in Mail. But I can not change my AppleID to that @me.com email because it says it is already associated with a MobileMe acct. I didn't have MobileMe. I can also log in with my new @me.com email address as the AppleID and the same password as the old email and it logs on fine but the ID name in the corner always goes back to the old email. Sorry if bad explanation. Anyone run into that?

So i am trying to update my Mid 2010 MacBook Pro from OS X Lion 10.7.1 to the newest update 10.7.2 but every time I look for software updates it keeps telling me that my software is up to date and there are no known software updates. Anyone else having this problem or know how to solve it?! Thanks

Your right - Apple is a failure. It couldn't possibly be your ISP, your Internet connection, your crappy wifi - it's all Apple

What a crock. I have updated three Mac's, an iPhone 4, an iPad and iPhone 3g (each iOS device weighs in at almost 800MB) since about noon today (it's 1845 now). All updates happened rather speedily, even the ones over wifi.

But continue to blame Apple

Has anyone been able to get "Find My Mac" to work? It finds my iPad, and iPhone fine, but my Mac shows up as "Offline."

Nevermind, I figured it out. I was connect via Ethernet. Switching to Wifi fixed the problem. I suppose it works the same way as it works on a WiFi only iPad.

Since I've applied the latest update, I am no longer able to switch my audio output from headphones to HDMI. I change between the two on a near daily basis. I hadn't previously encountered this problem with any 10.6 or the previous 2 releases of Lion. I have a Panasonic TV. Whenever I click to change the output from headphones to hdmi from either the top bar sound icon or through settings/sound it reverts right back to headphones. The only way I've found to fix it thus far is to physically remove the minijack from the headphone port. If I plug it back in audio immediately stops through HDMII and again same software problem.

I hope you send this to Samsung. It is making pears and calling them apples-with-more-room-at-the-top.

Same position, first gen MacBook Pro. Can't upgrade to Lion. Can see no reason why iCloud can't run on SL other than Apple not wanting it two. Surely iCloud doesn't need 64 bit for it to work. The next gen MBP was only a processor bump that brought in 64 bit. Other than that there was little change. So 64 bit routines are all I can think of. Apple forcing redundancy.

So, thanks Apple for providing Windows users with a 32 bit solution but not Mac users. Cheers fellas

Here are some other changes in 10.7.2:

- All the of the glitches/drawing errors in HiDPI modes are gone! They have clearly been working on this. Maybe a Mac will soon have a Retina display.

- The Mac App Store now has X buttons in the Purchases tab. I don't know what they do, perhaps they permanently delete an app from your Purchase History? They do not simply uninstall, because they are also there for apps not currently installed.

Does anyone know where your photo stream photos are on the iCloud? They seem to be in a hidden, encrypted secret place. You can remove them all in iCloud.com but not see them there. Just wondering.

Not used to all this sneaking around. Not saying it is definitely bad. But I like seeing my user library in Lion. Thank Steve for UNIX underpinnings.

Can't wait until UPS tomorrow to test iOS 5 with OS 10.7.2. My 4S just arrived in Kentucky a half hour ago from Hong Kong via alaska on it's way to South Jersey.

I notice the web app version of the calendar (the one on iCloud.com) updates as it should when I make changes on either of my 2 macs' iCal - make a new entry on either mac, it pops up pretty damn quick on iCloud. However, isn't it supposed to also work the other way too? If I make a change or new entry on the web interface of iCloud, doesn't it push that change to my macs as well? Cause that's not working for me - no change I make on the web calendar shows up on my macs iCal. Is this a feature or a bug? Or teething pains soon to be sorted out?

I agree, though I'm more disappointed with the Mac/PC integration. I think we're looking for iDisk functionality, which was dropped in favor of the sandboxed protect-your-data-from-yourself approach.

I was hoping to use iCloud to wirelessly store and sync PDF's between the iPad (GoodReader) and my desktop(s), but this does not appear possible unless the devs create a GoodReader desktop application for Mac/PC.

So for now, iCloud could sync PDFs between GoodReader on my iPad and iPhone, but only after manually copying them onto the iPad into Goodreader (and then moving the file(s) to iCloud within GoodReader), but then the PDF still isn't accessible from other apps or from any desktop. Seriously?!
