OSX Lion Details From 2011 WWDC

Apple Introduces OSX Lion at WWDC

Steve Jobs got a standing ovation at the start of this year's WWDC keynote speech, but passed the mic off quickly to Phil Schiller, who introduced new features coming with OSX Lion. Coming this Summer, OSX Lion will be stocked with some iPad-like features. Some we've already heard about: multitouch gestures, Mission Control, full-screen apps, and Launchpad. Check out the other new features coming with OSX Lion below:

  • Versions — Lion automatically saves a version of any document you're working on every time you open the file as well as every hour you're working, so you're never too far from your last update.
  • Resume — A lifesaver for anyone who wants to run their updates, but doesn't want to lose their work, Resume automatically opens up every app, browser tab, and document you were working on before you had to restart.
  • Conversations in Mail 5 — Conversation threads finally come to Apple's Mail 5 along with a new layout that takes advantage of your Mac's screen width.
  • Airdrop — You can send files to any nearby Airdrop user wirelessly without the need to use any external software or tools. To use, just activate Airdrop via the icon in the finder sidebar, and then find the contact you wish to send a file to. Drag the file into his name, and once the file is accepted and transferred (with encryption) then you can close out of Airdrop, cutting off access to your computer's network.

OSX Lion will be available in the Mac App store this July.
