Apple moves toward digital unity with Mountain Lion

Blending the best of OS X and iOS makes both operating systems better

Apple revealed its latest desktop/laptop operating system: OS X Mountain Lion. The final version will be released this summer, but the developer preview unveiled on Thursday shows that the upcoming OS picks up where OS X 10.7 — code-named Lion — left off. The upgrade will be available only as a download from the Mac App Store (surprise, surprise) . Apple won’t sell it on disc or on a thumb drive, as it did with earlier versions of OS X.

The most important element of the new OS is deeper integration with iCloud, the collection of services that stores your data to Apple’s servers automatically and then syncs that data across all your devices. On the iPhone and iPad, every photo, document, bookmark, contact — everything — gets backed up.
