Now that Lion is similar more and more to iOS, Apple would be appraising the idea to create an only base software, for devices mobile and desktop / laptot, based on the applications and on iCloud. Idea has its advantages and this fusion of the operational systems you/he/she could already begin of the 2012.
iCloud will be to the center of the unitary theory that Apple would have in mind to bring before more and more, giving therefore the possibility to the consumer to install the same application and to use the same contents on Mac, iPhone and iPad. And a great footstep could be made in 2012, how much the processor Apple A6 will be able to not only be used on iPhone and iPad, but also on the Mac. The consumers, in fact, desire to be able to use any contents on his/her own electronic instruments and to use even the same app on Mac in the office, on iPhone while he returns to house and on iPad once sat him on the couch.
In short, OS X that he/she meets iOS for an unitary base that would be also indeed an absolute novelty for the competitors Apple. In this way, besides, Apple would stimulate the development of HTML5 and iAD, with a base consumers ampler in comparison to that today’s.
We don’t know if this fusion will already have begun since 2012, but many analysts are convinced that within 5 years this project will be finished.
