Apple is preparing to launch the next version of its OS X operating system for desktop and laptop computers — and it looks like the company is adding a feature that will offer new ways synchronization data between Apple’s mobile devices such as iPhones or iPads and OS X Lion.

The version of the Safari web browser that comes with OS X Lion includes a new feature called Reading List which lets users save a web page so you can read it later. You can then sort your reading list by read or unread pages. The idea is to give you something a bit more temporary than a full-fledged browser bookmark so that you can mark a page you just want to read later, not necessarily a page you’ll keep coming back to over and over.

The folks at 9 to 5 Mac received a tip that by using Apple’s MobileMe bookmark synchronization service doesn’t just let you synchronize your normal Safari bookmarks with an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad — it can also recognize Reading List items. Apple is expected to phase out MobileMe, but it’s likely that another bookmark synchronization technique could do the same thing.

There are a number of third party tools for synchronizing bookmarks and reading list-style pages, including Instapaper and Xmarks. But if Apple builds the feature into Safari, it would be a nice bonus for customers who have Mac computers and iOS mobile devices.
