The latest version of the operating system of Apple will reportedly see the integration of some iOS features including Reminders, notifications, Messages and the Game Center. Aside from these new features, the Gatekeeper technology will also be enhanced by the company.
Apple will likely use similar distribution channels for the Mac OS X Mountain Lion as the previous version of the OS although no statements were made by the company in connection to this. Mac users are advised to prepare for the upcoming release of the Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
Mac users are advised to backup their systems using the Time Machine technology of the OS X. However users can also use third party backup systems to perform the same function. After backing up their system, testing the backup is also recommended when preparing for the release of the Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
Users can also back up the Mac OS X Mountain Lion that they would download from the App Store of Apple. Since the installer would normally be deleted once the OS is installed, some users have found it necessary to reinstall the OS in their devices.
It is also important for users to deal with any problems in their system before they try to install the Mac OS X Mountain Lion since it may persist even after the new OS is installed into their devices. Users can contact support services of the software that frequently experienced problems or they can ask for help through the discussion boards of Apple.
Users can also perform general maintenance routines to maintain the performance of their devices. They can run the Disk Utility after rebooting their device in Safe Mode. These steps can be done in preparation for the release of the Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
