How to Use Mobile ME With Apple Products


MobileMe is an Apple service that automatically syncs a user’s email, contacts and calendar between all of the user’s devices. The information is stored in a “cloud” that automatically updates all the devices without the need for docking. This means that a calendar item entered on an iPhone will automatically appear in the calendar application on that user’s Macbook. Because it is an Apple product, MobileMe works easily with Apple devices.

  • Sign up for a free trial of MobileMe if you are not already a member.

  • Ensure that your computer is running the most recent update before you set it up to work with MobileMe by going to the Apple menu and selecting “Software Update.” On-screen instructions will appear if you need to update the software.

  • Open the MobileMe preferences by going to “System Preferences” in the Apple menu. Select the “Mobile Me” category.

  • Enter your MobileMe user name and password.

  • Set your computer to sync with other devices by going to the “Sync” tab. Click on the option to “Synchronize with MobileMe.” For the fastest updating of your information, select the “Automatically” option. Select which items you want to sync.

  • Ensure that your iPhone or iPod is running the latest version of iTunes before you set it up to work with MobileMe. Connect the device to your computer and click “Check for Updates” in the iTunes Summary tab.

  • Enable synchronization on your device by tapping “Settings” on the home screen and then tapping “Mail,” “Contacts” and “Calendar.” Ensure that the “Fetch New Data” option is set to “Push.”

  • Add your MobileMe account information to the device and press “Save.”

  • Turn on “Mail,” “Contacts,” “Calendar” and “Bookmarks” on the device if they are not already turned on. If you receive an on-screen prompt, select “Merge with MobleMe.”
