The company could plan the release of OS X Mountain Lion the next day
Apple is reportedly preparing store overnights for July 24th, which could point at the release of OS X Mountain Lion the very next day, recent reports suggest.The Cupertino-based giant already confirmed that the platform would be released in July, yet no specific release date was provided.
However, with its Q3 2012 earnings set to be announced on the 24th, a July 25th launch sounds about right, especially since the company followed a similar pattern last year.
On the other hand, there is the possibility that the overnight will simply be part of the usual set of overnights that Apple holds on Tuesday, and that the platform won’t land next Wednesday.
Since OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion won’t arrive alongside new hardware, the overnights will be shorter, rumor has it. The platform will sport a price tag of $19.99 for upgrades.
