Hour 1. Introduction to Mac OS X Lion > Introducing Mac OS X Lion

Introducing Mac OS X Lion

In this section we’re going to take a tour of some of the new features of Mac OS X Lion. With this release of Mac OS X, Apple has incorporated some of the most compelling features of its mobile operating system, iOS, and the newest advancements in user interaction and technology.

Multitouch Gestures

As the popularity of devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad grows, so too does the popularity of multitouch gestures. Most users of mobile devices today are already familiar with touch screens. In fact, users are so familiar with controlling applications with multitouch gestures that they have come to expect this capability.

Apple has had some support for multitouch gestures in its trackpads since Mac OS X Leopard, but Lion has greatly enhanced support for many new gesture types.
