Reminder! MobileMe ends June 30!

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Just a friendly reminder to our users who haven’t had a chance to move to iCloud: MobileMe ends in 30 days.  Sorry folks, but no more procrastinating — if you have a MobileMe account, you need to move to iCloud before Saturday, June 30.  MobileMe members must make this transition in order to continue to have email, contacts, and calendars kept up to date automatically (and also to take advantage of the new services that iCloud provides).

Need Mac Help’s techs have been helping users transition seamlessly from MobileMe to iCloud, so please don’t hesitate to contact us to book an appointment or ask any questions about the transition and the new services iCloud provides.  We will be happy to help you sort out the system requirements for iCloud for all your devices.
