Mac OS X Lion Release Date is Today, July 20, Apple Confirms
Apple has confirmed that Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will launch today, July 20. This was announced today during the Apple Q3 2011 earnings call by Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer, and later reaffirmed by COO Tim Cook.
This confirms at least half of the recent rumor about a Wednesday launch, but it remains to be seen whether a new MacBook Air will be launched alongside Lion as well, or later in the month.
Mac OS X Lion will cost $29.99 and be available exclusively as a digital download through the Mac App Store. You can read more of our Lion coverage here.
