The Best of OS X Mountain Lion

Posted on February 16, 2012

Apple surprised almost everyone this morning by announcing its latest update to its Mac operating system, OS X Mountain Lion.

Coming less than a year after Lion, Mountain Lion adds in a lot of apps and features from iOS into the Mac operating system.

We’re really excited about:

  • the increased use of iCloud, and iCloud enabled applications such as reminders and notes.
  • the Share Sheet menu which will make sharing easier from all apps and which embeds Twitter into the operating system.
  • AirPlay mirroring which will remove the need for cables in conference rooms!
  • Additionally, it seems as though Apple may be moving to annual updates of OS X, more aligned with iOS. Expect to see then iOS 6 released in the same summer timeframe; and may be more additions to Mountain Lion to complement those in iOS 6.
