New Mac OS X Lion

The new version of Mac OS will add interface improvements that capitalize on the multitouch functionality available in Mac trackpads and mice. Support for new full-screen experiences, one-click app downloads and more are also in the cards.

Apple will be bringing its multitouch capabilities on iOS to the Mac in Mac OS X Lion. Using devices like the Apple Magic Trackpad and the Magic Mouse, users of Lion will be able to naturally flow through work using simple swipes and gestures. Movements will be consolidated through a terminal called Mission Control (pictured).

Apple CEO Steve Jobs also revealed that Apple has tried a number of options for desktop touchscreens, but he said that touch needs to be horizontal. So, in other words, don’t expect an iMac with a giant touch display any time soon.
