We’ve been hearing about the next iteration of Apple’s operating system OS X Mountain Lion for quite some time now. As an incremental update, Apple had originally indicated that the OS would be available at the beginning of July but challenges have delayed the launch of this OS.
Today however, we can confirm that OS X Mountain Lion is now available for the low price of $19.99 through the Mac App Store. The announcement that the OS would be available today was confirmed yesterday during Apple’s financial call. Those that are looking to be amongst the first to get the upgrade may have a bit of a wait on their hand. Early reports that are coming in seem to indicate that buying the OS through the App Store is a slow go, simply because the Apple servers are being pushed by the volumes of people looking to upgrade. In addition to this, the upgrade weighs in at 4.05 GB so even after you buy it, you will have a bit of wait on your hand to download it. In this case, having a high speed Internet connection will help to some extent.
Also, don’t forget, OS X Mountain Lion is a free upgrade for customers that have purchased a Mac after June 11th.
