A preview of Lion was publicly unveiled at Apple's "[[Apple Special Events|Back to the Mac]]" event on October 20, 2010. It brings many developments made in Apple's [[iOS (Apple)|iOS]], such as an easily navigable display of installed applications, to the Mac, and includes support for the [[Mac App Store]], as introduced in [[Mac OS X Snow Leopard]] version 10.6.6.<ref>{{cite news| url=http://www.usatoday.com/tech/products/2010-10-20-apple-macbook_N.htm | work=USA Today | first=Jefferson | last=Graham | title=New Apple MacBook Air costs less, plus App Store is coming | date=October 21, 2010}}</ref><ref name=CNetVideo>{{cite web|url=http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-20020208-56.html|title=Apple unveils new MacBook Airs, previews Lion | Beyond Binary – CNET News|work=[[CNET]]|accessdate=October 22, 2010}}</ref>

== Release and distribution ==
On June 6, 2011, at the [[Apple Worldwide Developers Conference]], it was announced that the official release for Lion would be in July 2011. The specific release date of July 20 was not confirmed until the day before, July 19th, by Apple CFO, [[Peter Oppenheimer]], as part of Apple's 2011 third-quarter earnings announcement.<ref name="apple-q3-2011">[http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Desktops-and-Notebooks/Apples-OS-X-Lion-Launching-iPad-iPhone-Quarterly-Sales-Soar-163074/ Apple's OS X Lion Launching, iPad, iPhone Quarterly Sales Soar]</ref>
Apple did not initially announce any physical media distribution for Lion, such as a set of [[CD-ROM]]s or a [[DVD-ROM]] as used for past releases. Instead, the operating system was said to be available exclusively as a download from the [[Mac App Store]] for [[United States dollar|US$]]29.99.<ref name="howtobuy">{{cite web|title=OS X Lion - Get Lion in July. Only from the Mac App Store.|url=http://www.apple.com/macosx/how-to-buy/|publisher=Apple Inc.|accessdate=June 7, 2011}}</ref><ref name="macrumors1">{{cite web|url=http://www.macrumors.com/2011/06/06/mac-os-x-lion-set-for-july-debut-priced-at-29-99-mac-app-store-exclusive/ |title=Mac OS X Lion Set for July Debut Priced at $29.99, Mac App Store Exclusive |publisher=Mac Rumors |accessdate=June 7, 2011}}</ref> The only prior version of OS X that supports the Mac App Store is Snow Leopard, which implied that any machines that support Lion currently running [[Mac OS X 10.4|Tiger]] or [[Mac OS X 10.5|Leopard]] would first have to be upgraded to Snow Leopard, as opposed to allowing a direct upgrade to Lion.
Apple later announced two alternative distribution mechanisms for the benefit of users without broadband Internet access: in-store downloads at retail [[Apple Store]]s, and a [[USB flash drive]] containing the OS, priced at US$69, available through the [[Apple Store (online)|online Apple Store]] beginning in August.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2011/07/20Mac-OS-X-Lion-Available-Today-From-the-Mac-App-Store.html|title=Mac OS X Lion Available Today From the Mac App Store|author=Apple|date=2011-07-20|accessdate=2011-07-20}}</ref> It is not clear whether the USB distribution will support a direct upgrade to Lion from OS X versions prior to Snow Leopard.
The Server portion of Lion is available as a separate download from the Mac App Store for US$49.99, which is in addition to the purchase price of Lion itself.<ref name="lionserver">{{cite web|title=Lion Server - The server for everyone.|url=http://www.apple.com/macosx/server/|publisher=Apple Inc.|accessdate=June 7, 2011}}</ref><!--Yes, $49.99, not $29.99; that's what the reference says. -->
== Hardware support ==
The first developer preview of Lion added [[TRIM]] support for [[Solid-state drive|SSDs]] shipped with Macs, which is also included in the latest version of Snow Leopard (10.6.8) shipping with current MacBook Pros before July 20, 2011. As of yet, there is no [[TRIM]] support for other [[Solid-state drive|SSDs]].<ref name="trim">{{cite web|url=http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/11/02/25/apple_adds_ssd_trim_support_to_mac_os_x_10_7_lion_beta.html |title=Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: Apple adds SSD TRIM support |publisher=AppleInsider |date=February 25, 2011 |accessdate=June 7, 2011}}</ref>

* On demand scroll bars now disappear by default when they are not being used, similar to iOS.<ref name="otherfeatures"/>
* Scrolling is reversed by default, to act more like a touch screen computer. (Content moves in the direction of finger movement on touch-pad or mouse.)

* The dashboard is now its own space in Mission Control, rather than in previous versions of OS X where the widgets simply flew in and the background dimmed. The "ripple effect" that was seen previously when adding widgets is no longer there due to this change. Users have the option to return to the old dashboard configuration in System Preferences.
* Tabs, when selected, now appear as being pushed in and darkened as opposed to previous versions where selected tabs were highlighted in aqua blue.<ref>{{cite web|title=Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: Developer Preview 3 dials down animated tabs|url=http://forums.appleinsider.com/showthread.php?threadid=123512#other|publisher=AppleInsider |date=April 29, 2011 |accessdate=July 12, 2011}}</ref>

== Reception ==
Reception for OS X Lion has been positive. In an extensive review of the operating system, ''[[Ars Technica]]'' recommended Lion.<ref name=ars/> They noted that it feels like it is the start of a new line of operating systems that will continue to be influenced by Apple's [[iOS (Apple)|iOS]] platform.<ref name=ars/> The review also compared the introduction of Lion, along with its new conventions that change traditional ways of computing, to the original [[Mac OS X]] and when it replaced the classic [[Mac OS]].<ref name=ars>{{cite news|url=http://arstechnica.com/apple/reviews/2011/07/mac-os-x-10-7.ars/|title=Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: the Ars Technica review|last=Siracusa|first=John|date=July 20, 2011|work=[[Ars Technica]]|publisher=[[Condé Nast Digital]]}}</ref> ''[[Macworld]]'' called Lion a "radical revision", praising the changes made to the operating system to be more user friendly to new Mac users that are familiar with the iOS interface, while criticizing the limited utility of the interface. Ultimately, the magazine considered Lion an operating system worth getting, giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.<ref name=macworld>{{cite news|accessdate=2011-07-21 |url=http://www.macworld.com/article/161026/2011/07/osx_lion_review.html |title=Apple OS X Lion |newspaper=Macworld |date=July 20, 2011 |last=Snell |first=Jason}}</ref> [[guardian.co.uk]] called Lion a substantial improvement from its predecessors, and considered it a "steal" given its price.<ref name=guardian>{{cite web |accessdate=2011-07-21 |url=http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/jul/20/mac-osx-lion-review |title=Mac OS X Lion: in-depth review with pictures |publisher=guardian.co.uk |date=2011-07-20 |last=Gemmell |first=Matt }}</ref> On the other hand, ''[[Gizmodo]]'' stated that the new interface "feels like a failure" and concluded by saying that "it doesn't feel like a must-have upgrade".<ref name=gizmodo>{{cite news|accessdate=2011-07-24 |url=http://gizmodo.com/5819418/mac-os-x-lion-this-is-not-the-future-we-were-hoping-for |title=Mac OS X Lion: This Is Not the Future We Were Hoping For |publisher=[[Gizmodo]] |date=July 11, 2011 |last=Diaz |first=Jesus}}</ref>
Due to Lion's enhanced security features, including application sandboxing, Dino Dai Zovi, principal of security consultancy Trail of Bits and the coauthor of ''The Mac Hacker's Handbook'', characterized Lion's security as "a significant improvement, and the best way that I've described the level of security in Lion is that it's Windows 7, plus, plus. I generally tell Mac users that if they care about security, they should upgrade to Lion sooner rather than later, and the same goes for Windows users, too."<ref name="elreg">{{cite news|url=http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/21/mac_os_x_lion_security/ |title= Major overhaul makes OS X Lion king of security|newspaper=[[The Register]] |first=Dan |last=Goodin |date=21 July 2011 |accessdate=2011-07-23}}</ref>
