Mountain Lion preview
T3 is the only UK magazine to have time with Apple’s new big cat, OS X Mountain Lion, before it went on sale and here's what we thought.
Messages is the Mac version of iMessage, that allows you to send free messages to other Mac users. It's been available for months as beta but this is the final thing.
There’s also a very cool feature called Sharing so that by clicking on the sharing icon you can easily send web pages by email, or photos to Twitter. You won't use it all the time but it's a nice to have.
Another handy refresh is the fact that browser tabs are now saved to the iCloud, so if you're surfing on your iPhone you can carry on where you left off on your Mac when you get home.
But there’s still lots to enjoy on every compatible machine. The ongoing sewing together of iOS and OS X is to be welcomed, and the integration of iCloud to keep all your Apple products up to speed is particularly good.
