Mac OS X and iOS Combine Forces in Mountain Lion

Apple today has released a developer preview of Mac OS X Mountain Lion, including over 100 new features that further bridges the gap between the Mac OS X and iOS platforms. Among the new features in Mountain Lion are Messages for Mac, Notes, Reminders and Game Center for Mac, as well as Notification Center, Share Sheets, Twitter integration and AirPlay Mirroring. Many of these software packages and features were originally released for iOS on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad…

“The Mac is on a roll, growing faster than the PC for 23 straight quarters, and with Mountain Lion things get even better,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The developer preview of Mountain Lion comes just seven months after the incredibly successful release of Lion and sets a rapid pace of development for the world’s most advanced personal computer operating system.”

The developer preview of Mountain Lion is available those enrolled in the Mac Developer Program effective immediately. End users running OS X Lion will be able to upgrade to Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store in late summer 2012. iFans will have extensive coverage of the Mountain Lion operating system over the coming days and weeks.
