Apple launches Mac's OS X Mountain Lion system upgrade
London, July 26 (ANI): U.S. based tech giant Apple has released the latest version of its Mac operation system.
The system upgrade, OS X Mountain Lion, makes it easy for a user to share material on social networks and also introduces a notification panel that is found on many other smartphones.
The news was revealed in the company's third quarter earnings release, which showed Mac sales to be up by 2 percent on the year, but the results fell short of many analysts' forecasts.
According to the BBC, Apple, which first announced the latest update to its operating system in February, continues a trend to introduce features to its desktop and laptop families that have already been implemented on its iPad and iPhone mobile devices.
These include the ability to upload and synchronise material with its iCloud Internet storage service; the introduction of the iMessage service allowing text message-like chats between the firm's computers and handsets; the ability to easily share material to Twitter; and an application to compare the user's video game scores against those of their friends, the report said.
The tech giant has also taken steps to aid its expansion in China, including the adoption of Baidu as a search service built into its web browser's toolbar, and buttons to make it easy to share material to the Sina Weibo microblog, and the video sites Youku and Tudou.
However, the firm's decision to keep its Mac system distinct from iOS for mobile devices is to be challenged by Microsoft, when it releases its upcoming software Windows 8 during October this year. (ANI)
