Apple offers MobileMe update, services still down

updated 11:10 pm EDT, Fri July 11, 2008

MobileMe v1.1 update

While portions of Apple's MobileMe service continue to be down, Apple has posted The Mac OS X Update For MobileMe v1.1, which it says is recommended for users running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 and includes general system fixes that enhance your Mac for MobileMe. The 8.3MB download is available via the Mac OS X Software Update. Readers also report receiving their pre-ordered retail packages of MobileMe (with activation codes), but the homepage continues to be down. Sync services between computers and devices (through the "Cloud") appear to working fine along with email. Apple's own updated support notes problems with the homepage and its groups services.

"Some MobileMe members may be unable to access groups.mac.com. Service will be restored ASAP. We apologize for any inconvenience," the company noted. "MobileMe members cannot access the HomePage application. Service will be restored ASAP. We apologize for any inconvenience."

The company has had problems maintaining the promised services since the initial launch and has provided no ETA on a fix, frustrating many users and leaving many to wonder if the services are reliable.

    Got update

    and the service is working for me. Haven't tried Windows though - yesterday it couldn't register computer for sync. But I'm in no hurry, there wasn't any sync with Windows before anyway.

    No Update No Push

    I see no update, nor do I have push calendar working.

    Truly sad Apple, and very unlike you!!

    should we download?

    If it isn't available through software update, doesn't that say something?

    No update for me

    I didn't get 1.0, either. Eventually, I was able to configure my MobileMe through the .Mac preference pane.

    Shared Calendars

    Will "subscribed" calendars ever show up on my iPhone again? Is this part of groups?
