What do you do when you reach enlightenment? Keep going. Mac OS X Tiger was ahead of its time in 2005. But that didn’t stop Apple engineers from moving forward. Get a glimpse of the not-so-distant future. Introducing Mac OS X Leopard.

Use it, never lose it

New in Leopard, Time Machine takes you beyond the backup. An automated system that regularly backs up everything on your Mac — music, photos, movies, documents — Time Machine also takes you back in time to restore your system. Enter Time Machine’s browser and look for files you may have deleted or lost, flip through multiple versions of the same project, or get a snapshot of your entire system from day one.

More Mail

Get the message

Set your email to stun with Mail 3 in Leopard. Create amazing invitations, letters, travelogues, and more — complete with photos and graphics — using new Stationery templates. Just choose your template, then use the built-in Media Browser to drag in your photos and more. And when those RSVPs start filling your inbox, you’ll stay organized with new Notes and To-Dos you can access from any Mac or PC. Plus, security enhancements including anti-phishing protection in Mail and Safari make Leopard the safest Mac OS for all your communications.

Show and tell

iChat gets a double dose of fun and functionality in Leopard. Chat from virtually everywhere with video backdrops. Create a video alter-ego in iChat using fun effects from Photo Booth, built into Leopard. Set up an iChat Theatre session to put on a virtual slideshow or Keynote presentation. Or Initiate Screen Sharing and take control of a friend or colleague’s display.

Enjoy the view


Leopard improves the way you manage and access information on your Mac. For starters, with Spaces, you can organize your windows into different groups — work, play, communication, creation — and move between them all with ease. Spaces gives you a one-click bird’s eye view of every project.

Plus, Dashboard adds new widgets that make life on the Web a one-click affair. Want to build your own Dashboard widgets? Dashcode gets your widgets running in minutes — even if you’ve never written a line of code.

Shine a light

Spotlight for Leopard introduces searching across network-mounted folders, so you can find what you need on more than one Mac. And with more powerful, flexible search options, Spotlight gives you more ways to find everything on your desktop — and beyond.

Get ready, get set, get Leopard

All these features and more are delivered to you in one universal, fully accessible, 64-bit operating system. Coming spring 2007.
