Mac OS X Lion's available, what does this mean for the iPhone?

Apple Mac OS X Lion today released the latest version of the desktop OS for the Mac. The importance for the iPhone might not be obvious, but who looks better once discovered that the biggest innovations in Lion borrowed from IOS. The interface has a number of subtle points changed, for example, Mission Control (a combination of Expos√© and Spaces) that you quickly switch programs. Apple introduced the iPhone in before multitasking.

Lion in his new multi-touch gestures, as we know from the touch screens of IOS devices. You can also use programs from now on screen, like an iPhone usual. The Mac App Store is derived directly from the App Store iOS. Of course the Mac App Store for a while, but you need the software store at Lion no longer separately as an app to install because the standard is part of Lion. To purchase Lion, you also in the Mac App Store. For $29.99 you get into possession of this new OS X version, provided you have Snow Leopard uses.
Besides those, other new products launched. The new MacBook Air models are now in the Apple Store . There is also a new Mac mini announced.
A few more innovations: Launchpad open and you get the impression that you've arrived on the iPhone. All programs are seen as separate icons, like the apps on an iPhone. Earlier we wrote that the Lion 'wobbly icons' will take over from IOS. Useful, for example, the Resume function: programs that connect the next time you open the place where you left off. If you install software updates, you do not get your work to save and close programs. Lion arrange that for you and open the updated programs where you left off.
Airdrops is new, but has no immediate impact on your iPhone. With airdrops can wirelessly send files to everyone in the neighborhood, without a Wi-Fi network is needed. You click on the icon airdrops in the sidebar of the Finder and will find out which Mac users within a radius of 10 meters are present. If they airdrops you can make the files just to name a drag.
Very useful for iPhone users, OS X Server Lion. After configuring your server using the new server, you can get started with Profile Manager. There you will have computers with Lion and IOS devices remotely. You can even wirelessly send updates to users via push messages.
