OS X Mountain Lion Features Coming In iOS 6

Apple Mac OS X Mountain Lion

Apple’s upcoming release of OS X Mountain Lion maybe carrying several features from iOS 5. However, it will also introduce the world to some new features that are also coming to iOS 6.

According to trusted sources, iOS 6 will include iCloud Tabs support, Mail VIPs, and Notification Center enhancement.

iCloud Tabs is a feature that would allow iCloud users to view a list of tabs opened in the Safari web browser across multiple iOS devices and Macs. Although previously rumored, iCloud Tabs is not a feature in its initial implementation in iOS 6 and Mountain Lion, that can sync your entire current web browser work across devices. When iCloud Tabs button would get clicked on an iOS 6 device (or Mac), all the tabs opened on each device will be simply shown in a synchronized list. From here, users will be able to quickly pickup individual tabs that they were working on across their Apple devices. The iCloud Tabs button on the iPhone and iPod touch is hidden behind the Bookmarks toolbar.

Another subtle, yet much requested, feature from Mountain Lion is Mail VIPs. Mail VIPs in iOS 6 will put a star next to emails received from a specified group of people. VIPs assigned to iCloud accounts will sync with iCloud across iOS 6 iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches, and Macs running on OS X Mountain Lion. OS X Mountain Lion users have so-far praised the feature because many users find themselves constantly looking for email from a select group of contacts.

Lastly, OS X Mountain Lion in iOS 6 that we have heard about will have a “Do Not Disturb” feature in iOS 6. When online reports revealed that the ability to quickly disable alerts and banner for notifications in OS X Mountain Lion, the news was covered and regarded by many Mac users as well as news outlets as a small addition in terms of functionality, but a major enhancement in terms of user productivity. With the iOS device display sizes, and the full-screen applications on these devices, the ability to easily turn on and off notification alerts will be very helpful. Sources say, that while the option is present directly in the Mountain Lion Notification Center, the Do Not Disturb toggle will be stationed like the Airplane Mode button in settings.

iOS 6 is currently scheduled to reach customers this fall. It is also expected to include a revamped Maps application in addition to many more enhancements. The new software will launch alongside next-generation iPhone with both several internal and external changes.
