Apple's iOS 5 might have stolen the show at the company's WWDC event in San Francisco last week, but the next version of Mac OS X - Lion - also saw a new beta release. According to reports, the latest seed features a new 'Reboot to Safari' feature, akin to Google's Chrome OS laptops.
In a press, release, Apple confirmed that an iCloud service will be unveiled at WWDC on Monday, June 6th, as well as iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion, the company's next-generation computer operating system. Yes folks, no new iPhone hardware is going to be released this time around.
Not a registered Mac developer but still want to see some of the new features of OS X 10.7 Lion in action? The guys over at RazorianFly have spied a couple of YouTube videos of the new developer build, running on what appears to be some sort of MacBook Pro.
The greatest strength of Apple and its iPhone has always been the availability of nearly 200,000 apps in the iTunes App Store. No other phone manufacturer has so far been able to match the success that iPhone’s App Store has got. This amazing success of the App Store has led to people wondering if Apple would bring such a business model to its OS X platform as well.
