Following weeks of speculation, Apple chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer has announced Mac OS X Lion will be released tomorrow, Wednesday July 20 US time (Thursday July 21, Australian time).
"We are very excited," he said, reiterating some of the 250 new features in Lion.
Lion will be available from the Mac App Store for $31.99. The server version is an extra $51.99.
People who purchased a 'qualifying' Mac (Apple has yet to define that term) on or after June 6, 2011 are entitled to an upgrade to Lion at no extra charge. Existing owners must claim by August 30, while those who purchase a qualifying Mac from tomorrow have 30 days to make their claim.
