There are a few more features Mountain Lion is taking from iOS.
Dictation on the Mac works just like the iPhone. It lets you speak into the built-in microphone and converts it to text. In fact, if you say ‘comma’ or ‘exclamation point,’ Dictation will punctuate for you.
Dictation is likely using the same servers as Siri:
The more you use Dictation, the smarter it gets. It learns voice characteristics.
Airplay Mirroring on the Mac
One of the greatest features of the iPad with iOS 5 was AirPlay mirroring. With a couple taps and swipes, you can project your iPad’s screen on a TV over the Apple TV. With Mountain Lion, the feature is coming to the Mac.
Show web pages and videos to friends on the couch, share lessons with a classroom, or present to a conference room. AirPlay audio streams the music, podcasts, and other audio on your Mac to AirPlay-enabled speakers.
The service works very well with iOS; we can only assume it works well on the Mac as well. The streaming process is seamless.
Okay, so actually this is a feature that both are getting at once. Better Tabs in Safari.
As long as you have iOS 6 on your iPhone or iPad:
When you open web pages on your iPhone or iPad, iCloud Tabs makes them available on your Mac, too.
Also, you can navigate your tabs on a Mac like you do on your iOS device in Tab View you pinch to see them all and swipe to switch between them.
Mac can’t take everything from iOS – there are some things that are far too restrictive. While we’re at it, iOS needs to pick up a few things from Mac. It is, however, good to see things moving back and forth.
