Apple has demonstrated its attention to detail in Mountain Lion, by programming the new Dictation feature to disable the MacBook’s fan so it can hear the user better.

9to5Mac reported on this clever finishing touch after Stuart Miles tweeted “Now that’s crazy – using Dictation in Mountain Lion turns the fan off briefly on the MacBook Air so it can hear me.”

In June, Apple’s attention to detail was also highlighted in its iOS 6 beta, when developers discovered that the reflection on the metallic sliders in the Music app on his iPhone changes when the iPhone is tilted, therefore creating a more realistic looking gleam on the virtual knob.

Mountain Lion was released on the Mac App Store on Wednesday, causing broadband operators to see a huge spike in traffic from Apple’s servers.
