apple has released a preview of its next update for the Mac operating system, dubbed Mountain Lion.The revamped OS mirrors several features of the flagship iPhone and iPad, including a new messaging app and Twitter integration.
The new operating system will be compatible with iCloud, Apple’s cloud-based storage system for music, films and other media. It will also introduce AirPlay mirroring, meaning Mac owners will be able to stream video content from their computer to a TV using Apple TV.
The new software will go on sale from the Mac App Store in late summer this year, Apple said. The California-based company sold a record 5.2m Macs in the quarter ending in December, up 26% from the same quarter in 2010.
