If you're a regular reader of this site, you're likely aware that Apple is making the final arrangements to release OS X Lion 10.7.2 and iCloud. As they both gradually inch closer to its release, Apple is beginning to invite selected users to test them both first hand, even if they're not registered developers with Apple.
Ever since Apple started building Intel processors into their Macs several years ago, it's been possible to dual-boot Windows, as well as run it on virtual machines alongside Mac OS X. Parallels 7, which was unveiled today, is the new version of a prominent virtual machine solution for Intel Macs.
Most OS X Lion users would already know; Apple released the 10.7.1 update for the said operating system one week ago, which contained general bug fixes and performance improvements. Now, Apple is making sure all new Lion users immediately get the updated operating system by updating its installer on the Mac App Store.
As iCloud, Apple's new online syncing service approaches its final release, registered Apple developers are getting their hands on three pieces of software designed to integrate with the new service: the OS X Lion 10.7.2 Build 11C40 update, Safari 5.1.1 and iCloud for OS X Lion Beta 8.
Are you eager to try OS X Lion, Apple's new Mac operating system, but are unable to download it from the online Mac App Store? If you're one of those folks, you're now able to purchase a bootable USB thumb drive from the Apple's online Store and soon from physical stores across the globe.
Can't wait to test out iCloud? The service, which has been rolling out slowly in the Mac developer community, has made another baby step today with the release of iCloud Beta 7 and OS X 10.7.2 to registered Apple developers.
If you're an OS X Lion user, you might be looking into different ways to adjust the system features to your own needs accordingly. Lion Tweaks is a new free tool that changes specific settings in Lion to make it more visually-appealing, or maybe just work better for you.
If you're familiar with OS X Lion, you're probably aware that the new system is no longer sold on a physical optical medium. For recovery purposes, users can simply hit the Command + R key combination at bootup, but what if that feature fails for some unforeseen reason?
Apple today has seeded a new build of OS X Lion 10.7.2 to developers. The update brings an updated version of iCloud, Safari and a new build of Lion (11C35) which is required for the transition from MobileMe to iCloud.
According to a leaked AppleCare document, Apple has begun selling bootable OS X Lion USB drives to users who are in dire need. These thumb drives will allow those users to perform clean installs of Lion without carrying out the painful task of setting up Snow Leopard first.
