Explaining to Pocket-lint in a behind-closed-doors briefing for the new developer preview of Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Apple has told us that the new method will offer updates to the OS and Apple applications in a similar way to how it does on iOS via the App Store, but in this case via the Mac App Store.
It’s about time. One of the biggest questions I had when Lion came out was why they weren’t doing this then. I guess that it could have something to do with fears of testing a new process, but still. Everything should be in one place with Push Notifications.
