The internet is abuzz once more with a hype that can mean only one thing: Apple are unveiling something new.

This time the hype stems from an update to their operating system: Mac OS v10.7 “Lion”, which has debuted today in the US.

Plugged by the Cupertino, CA, tech firm with the strap “the world’s most advanced desktop operating system advances even further”, the update introduces some 250 new features.

Amongst the developments introduced is enhanced use of the multi touch pad, with new gestures making navigating easier.

Many improvements in the Lion update relate to apps, in response to the launching of Mac App Store in January this year. New features include a Launchpad, making finding installed apps easier, as well as a new Resume ability enabling apps to continue from where you left off- cutting introduction sequences.

Auto Save is (finally) being added, negating the need for the Command-S sequence after each addition. A continuous log of work in pregress will be added automatically, whilst the new AirDrop feature will allow for wireless, wifi-free data sharing with other Macs.

The update is available via Apple’s app store for £20.99, from today (July 20th)
