Apple unleashes its Mountain Lion OS today

Apple Mountain Lion OS

The same day Apple released another stellar earnings report, it announced that the long-anticipated Mountain Lion, otherwise known as OS X 10.8, would go on sale first thing Wednesday morning.

Mountain Lion is available in the Mac app store only at a price of $19.99. Those who bought a new Mac on or after June 11 are entitled to a free upgrade.

In July 2011, Apple released the last version of the Mac OS - OS X 10.7, known as Lion. According to Apple, Lion is used by 40% of Mac owners, and 50% still use the previous version - Snow Leopard. Mountain Lion is a significant upgrade to Lion. It is rumored to add more than 200 new features, including integration with the iPhone and iPad operating system - iOS. Reminders, Messages, Notes and other notifications that will automatically sync between devices.

The Mountain Lion update is only for current Lion or Snow Leopard owners. If your Mac operates on a previous OS version, you’ll have to upgrade to Snow Leopard before buying Mountain Lion.  For those with a pre-2009 Mac, your computer probably won’t have enough processor to run Mountain Lion.
