  • OS X Mountain Lion Will Be Released Tomorrow


    Apple officially announced earlier today that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, the next-generation Mac operating system, will be available in the Mac App Store starting Wednesday, July 25 (tomorrow). It will be available for download for OS X Lion and OS X Snow Leopard users at the price of $19.99. Users who bought a Mac after June 11 will receive the upgrade to Mountain Lion for free after filling out a form, which was previously spotted then removed yesterday.

    This whole announcement was made during today’s fiscal third quarter results call by Apple CEO Tim Cook and is in line with the rumors that were circulating about a possible July 25th launch date. These rumors all cited extended Apple employee working hours which will also be in effect tomorrow. Cook said the following during his call: “We’ve also just updated the entire MacBook line, will release Mountain Lion tomorrow and will be launching iOS 6 this fall. We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we’ve got in the pipeline.”

    OS X Mountain Lion is said to bring features inspired by Apple’s iOS platform to the Mac operating system. These features include AirPlay Mirroring, Game Center, and tighter integration with iCloud. Overall, it is said that the new operating system is bringing over 200 features to the Mac OS X, leaving many users eager in anticipation. The announcement of the release of OS X Mountain Lion comes two weeks after Apple seeded the gold master to developers with no known issues. No major issuers were found with the finalized version of the new OS, including focus issues regarding graphic performance and quality, image and media importing, editing or viewing, and networking reliability and performance.

    All of those who have been patiently waiting now have a confirmed date, one that is sooner rather than later so you won’t even have to wait much.

      I hardly call it a service pack. I would call it a feature pack. Service packs usually strengthen security and fix bugs. This is adding features like airplay mirroring, notification center, built in sharing, etc… I would pay $20 for the airplay mirroring alone.

      Also, and i know people are going to tell me to be patient and I probably will be, does anyone know what time of day Apple released Lion? I know usually Apple releases their iOS software at 10am PT. I saw a couple of articles that said that Apple employee’s are going to be working overnight which leads me to believe a possible 3am EDT release. Anyone have any clues or ideas?

      Yeah you must have a Sandy Bridge processor or higher because of hardware acceleration for H.256. Sandy Bridge was the first processor to do this.

      Yea, do you believe that? I'm just wondering because AirParrot seems to work just fine on my mid 2010. Just saying. There is always some reason something won't work when it comes to Apple devices and newer software. I mean yes, certain functions make sence, but not a majority of them. It's starting to get old.

      The problem about MacBooks before the 11 not running AirPlay is because some Intel and media copyrights as far as I know.

      I can't wait! It's basically a polished version of Lion, with a twist of iOS, but I like it !
