Apple To Release OS X Mountain Lion On July 25

Apple announced today along side its Q3 earnings that it would be releasing its latest Mac operating system, OSX Mountain Lion to the public on the 25th of July. The OS is an improved version of the current OSX Lion but with iOS-like notifications as well as improvements like Game Center, deeper social network integration and tweaks to the Mail app.

Tim Cook, CEO at Apple wrote: “We’re thrilled with record sales of 17 million iPads in the June quarter. 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.”

Apples latest OS will cost $19.99 and will be available for download from the Mac App Store for older macs while the same upgrade will come free to users who purchased a Mac on or after June 11, 2012 but this offer will only last for 30 days.
