Since Mac OS X 10.2 was released eight years ago iSync has been available on the Mac. The purpose of the program is to synchronize contact and calendar information between the computer and a mobile phone. However, from the next upgrade of Mac OS X the synchronization software iSync will be history.

Given that the development of iSync has stalled since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, it will probably come as a big surprise that Apple now has decided to remove the program from Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. In other words, it looks as if the final version of iSync is 3.1.2, which was released in November last year.

Previously it has been revealed that Front Row and Rosetta will disappear from Mac OS X 10.7. The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) will also be removed from the system.
