Apple has finally made OS X Lion and Mountain Lion available as free downloads for Mac. Here is everything you need to know about this.
Apple has just begun seeding the next installment of Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4) to both AppleSeed testers and developers registered at Dev Center. The associated information offers very little in the way of detail, but considering this is just a minor number bump up from OS X 10.8.3, we wouldn't expect anything groundbreaking to reveal itself here.
For years, PC users have figured out ways to modify OS X in order to run it on regular non-Apple-designed machines. According to a video published on YouTube, a Microsoft Surface Pro user has managed to install Apple’s newest operating system on the newly-released Microsoft PC device.
Although the big news today from Apple is the release of iOS 6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users, the Cupertino company has also taken the opportunity to release an update to OS X Mountain Lion, which moves up to 10.8.2. Given that the desktop department of Apple's two main operating systems now borrows many features of iOS, these simultaneous releases should be expected, and if you have upgraded to Mountain Lion, this is an update you most certainly won't want to miss.
iOS or OS X, Apple’s operating systems have always come with a lovely set of wallpapers that really enhance your desktop, but did you know that OS X Mountain Lion - in addition to the wallpapers available under the Change Desktop Background option - comes with over three dozen wallpapers that are hidden*? If you’re the type who changes their wallpapers regularly, you should definitely check them out. Find out how after the jump!
Less than a month after releasing OS X Mountain Lion to the public via the Mac App Store, Apple has updated its desktop operating system bringing an array of minor bug fixes. Despite selling over two million copies in the first 48 hours alone, the very first iteration has had a couple of minor issues, as is nearly always the case with an initial release.
OS X Mountain Lion, Apple's latest desktop operating system, has seen mass adoption since launching at the tail end of last month, and after shifting some two million units in the first 48 hours alone, a large ensemble of Mac users are currently getting to grips with the new features.
Now that Apple have released OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion to the world, there are a lot of happy campers out there who are enjoying the latest and most advanced operating system from the Cupertino based company. The download and installation of Mountain Lion for Mac users couldn't be any simpler with it being available as a digital download via the Mac App Store and it being installed with just a matter of a few clicks over the top of an existing 10.7 or 10.6.8 installation.
OS X Mountain Lion, Apple's most recent operating system for the Mac, has sold in excess of two million copies in just two days - on par with the release of OS X Lion last year, which shifted 1 million copies in its first 24 hours. The new operating system includes many new features - some of which have been borrowed from the company's iOS mobile ecosystem. Things like Reminders, iMessage and Notification Center made a name for themselves on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, but now take pride of place on the desktop.
