Apple heading “Back to the Mac” on Oct. 20

Between the iPad, the iPhone 4 and iOS 4, this has certainly been the year for Apple’s mobile offerings. Though we had the requisite upgrades to the MacBook, iMac, and Mac Pro lines, along with a pretty significant revamp of the Mac mini, the Macintosh platform has taken a back seat this year to its touch-based cousin.

This event, though, is supposedly going to change that; apparently, Apple wants to talk about “what’s new for the Mac.” While the possibility of new hardware exists, the lion photo seems to suggest we’ll be getting a peek at OSX 10.7, which—keeping in with the tradition of naming OS X versions after big cats—could very well be code-named “Lion.”

Other than that, details are kind of scarce. What else does Apple have up its sleeve? We’ll have to find out on the 20th.

  • My guess is small revision to the OS but lots of new features/functionality for iLife & iWork. I’m still waiting for Apple Core (home media server strategy).

  • Let’s hope, if it is OS7, that it doesn’t contain any of the iOS rules about buying Apps and is less buggy than the first edition of OS7

  • Snow Leopard is pretty solid. I can’t imagine what direction they will go with Lion.
