SOURCE: How do I install the Mountain Lion on my Macbook Air?

You should be able to install Mountain Lion using the Mac App store. Check the applications folder to find the App Store.

Make sure to back up your files before upgrading. After backing up, you will purchase the upgrade from the App Store. Once it has downloaded you'll be walked through the steps to upgrade.

Hope that helps!

SOURCE: How do I sync Notes with my Mac laptop and my iPhone using Mountain Lion?

Hi Rachel,

In order to sync your Notes between your Apple devices, please use the following steps:

  • Go to your iCloud settings and sign up for an @me.com email address.
  • Once you have an @me.com email address, write a note in the Notes app on your iPhone.
  • Go to the iCloud website and open up the "Mail" application
  • Underneath all of your email folders (Inbox, Sent, etc.) there should be a folder called "Notes"
  • Open that folder and read your note!

SOURCE: How do I use iCloud on the new OS X Mountain Lion?

All you do is go into "System Preferences" and then click on "iCloud". From there you will be able to activate your account and proceed.

Please note that you will have to set up an @me.com email address from Apple. Without this you will not be able to sync between devices like you wish to do.

You can download Mountain Lion by going to the Apple Store. It costs $20 to get.

However, if you purchased your new computer after June 11, 2012 (which your question seems to indicate you did) then it will not cost you anything and will be completely free.

SOURCE: What are the common problems with Apple OSX Mountain Lion?

Hello Patrick,

The most common problems I've experienced with Mountain Lion are the following:

  • Reduced battery life. I've noticed about an hour to an hour and a half cut off from my battery life of my Macbook Pro. I'm not sure if this applies to you since you have a Macbook Air, but my recommendation is to try a reinstall if you experience battery problems and turn off some of the extra features like Twitter integration and iCloud when you're not using them.
  • Safari is crashing. Safari is a browser that used to have little respect but now has actually gotten pretty decent. However, with Mountain Lion it actually crashes a lot more than usual. I don't have a fix for it offhand, but I would recommend just using Chrome (which I use anyways) or Firefox. And stay away from Explorer!
  • Free upgrades to Mountain Lion. When I got my free upgrade to Mountain Lion (if you purchased a Mac after June 11, 2012 you can get one too) it took Apple about 5 days to upgrade me to Mountain Lion. This is a super low priority problem, but it's still something I hope they're working on.
  • Notes synchronization. I have answered this on FixYa already, you can find it on the site.

Best of luck.

Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed

How do I reduce Macbook Pro extensive battery loss after installing Mountain Lion?


How long does it take to lose 1/3 of its battery? What stuff are you doing? Internet browsing? Watching videos? ... And are you using a recent Macbook Pro, or is it an old model? Kinda hard to answer without any of this info.

Old Macbooks have crappy batteries that only last a couple of years. If you're not doing anything crazy and it still depletes quickly, you should consider buying a replacement battery.

What is the process to display my computer screen running Apple's Mountain Lion on my big screen TV?


This is something called Air Play. To set this up you need to follow these steps:
  • Already have or buy an Apple TV version 2 or later.
  • Have an iMac from mid 2011 or later, a Mac mini for mid 2011 or later, a Macbook Air from mid 2011 or later, or a Macbook Pro from early 2011 or later.
  • Have a Wi-Fi or ethernet internet connection.

Now you have to go through the set up to get the devices to "talk" to each other. You do that by using these steps:
  • Turn on your Apple TV and your computer
  • Go to System Preferences and click on "Airplay Mirroring"

After this you can play around and see which resolution size you want your TV to have compared to your computer. It completely depends on your TV and computer, but I usually set it up to match up with my Apple TV since I watch stuff from my computer on my television (it sounds like you will do this too).

What are the requirements to download Apple Mountain Lion OSX?


You must have the following computer to download Mountain Lion:

iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
Xserve (Early 2009)

Once that is done, you must be updated to the most recent version of either Snow Leopard or Lion. If you don't have either of these operating systems (which is highly unlikely considering the other computers should have them, but I digress) then you will need to get them before Mountain Lion.

After that, go to the Apple Store and download Mountain Lion!
