Although Apple’s reported iPhone has snagged an incredible amount of attention in recent weeks, a slew of new technologies appear to be en route to Mac OS X 10.5 according to a report by Macworld UK.
Thin client technologies generally center around a larger host and save data remotely to hard drives and online services.
Reported new features in iCal and new capacities within recent and upcoming builds of Mac OS X Server point toward devices like the iPhone and others that can integrate between Mac OS X and the Macintosh platform, according to a recent report by AppleInsider.
The report cites that Apple has demonstrated some of the new integration features to some parties, the features relying on an unreleased version of .Mac. These features include the ability to beam contacts, remotely control and gain access to calendars and appointment schedules, the Mac acting as a hub of sorts while sending data to a consolidated center where other computers can access it upon logging in from other locations.
