Mac OS X Lion has Castle aka iCloud Integration

Apple uses Castle as the codename for cloud offering that could be named iCloud?

Aren't developers bound to a nondisclosure agreement when it comes to talking about features found in developer builds of Apple OSes? This doesn't seem to have stopped the leakage of several aspects of what Apple is developing in the upcoming Mac OS X Lion release.

One interesting report comes from France. Consomac (via MacRumors). The blog found a reference to Castle in the latest build. Apparently there are dialogs that let you convert your MobileMe account to Castle. This implies that Apple is using Castle as the codename for the rumored complete cloud service offering. Last week we reported that Apple has bought the domain name

This is more evidence that the big Apple cloud service release is coming and it will be tightly integrated into Mac OS X Lion. We should learn all about Mac OS X Lion and the cloud service at the WWDC 2011 developer conference taking place in June. Apple has already unveiled some of the major new features for OS X Lion. There will be a new Launchpad that gives you instant access to your apps. Full screen apps and a Mac command central will also be part of the improvements. Other new features include AirDrop, New FileVault, Mail 5, Resume, Versions, Gestures, Animations and Auto Save.
