You may be thinking, what’s going to be the difference between Google vs Apple? Well only the fact that you can take full advantage of the Mac graphics for clear and crisp images. Not to mention gorgeous views such as flyover mode, which is a realistic 3D photo experience enabling you to ‘fly over your selected cities. iMaps will point out interesting places to visit, with contact details and reviews.
Another exciting feature is the point to point directions, with real time traffic info and updates. iMaps will offer alternative routes and when you’re ready to head off on your journey you can send the map to your iPhone for voice navigation all the way to your destination! pretty cool eh.
Yes iBooks will be finally making an appearance to the Mac club! With over 1.8 million books to read on iBooks you’ll never be at a loss at what to read again!

Displays and Desktop
With now more flexibility in the way you want to organise and work, apple has heard your cry. Apple has made it so there is no primary or secondary display… each screen will come with it’s own tool bar and options, and no matter what screen you are working on the dock is automatically available to you. Open up full screen applications on each display and still have totally separate work spaces.
constantly forgetting your passwords on the web, look no further as iCloud keychain has arrived folks! What does it do? Well remember your keywords of course! It stores usernames and passwords for websites you use on the devices you have approved, with a AES 256- bit encryption everything is kept up to date. This also applies to credit card info as well, so check out is made easier and faster.
