Apple has released OS X Lion 10.7.4, an update that features a number of important security fixes, some general improvements, as well as an update to the Safari browser.
As a part of today’s iCloud.com launch for developers, Apple has revealed the price points for extra iCloud storage for end users. As you can see in the screenshot above, iCloud will come with 5GB of free storage – as previously noted by Apple – but users will be able to upgrade their account to up to an extra 50GB. iCloud.com storage can be purchased through iOS 5′s settings application by end users. The best part about iCloud storage is that your Photo Stream images – which stay in the cloud for 30 days – don’t count against your tally.
Apple has been talking about OS X Lion for some time already, of course, but it’s now filled in most if not all of the remaining key details at WWDC. Dubbed a “major release” with over 250 new features, the OS adds things like a slew of new multi-touch gestures and full-screen apps (including iPhoto, iMovie, Safari, etc.), plus the all new Mission Control, which unifies Expose and Spaces, and the iOS-esque Launchpad application launcher. It also includes a new system-wide Resume feature that lets you pick up exactly where you left off, a new auto-save feature that automatically saves different versions of documents, the new AirDrop peer-to-peer file-sharing system, and a brand new version of Mail that finally includes a conversation view.
The OS will also now only be available in the Mac App Store as a 4GB download — which installs in place, no reboots — and it will run you just $29.99 for all of your authorized Macs. The latest developer preview is also available today.
