Mac OS X Mountain Lion to be released July 25th

Jul 24th, 2012

Apple announced today that the 8th major iteration of their operating system, Mac OS X Mountain Lion will be released on July 25th (tomorrow, at the time of this writing), the operating system update will cost $19.99 and will be available on the Mac App Store. The update will bring major features, such as the Notification System, improved accessibility features, as well as full social integration with both Twitter and Facebook being implemented into the main functions of the OS. Apple also promised improved security features due to recent security issues, including FIPS 140-2 certification (whatever that means). Accompanying the security updates, Apple will include a plethora of updated and improved features, such as a new Safari browser, Reminders, and Game Center. Expect major delays if you’re planning on updating your system tomorrow, as with all Apple launches there will be an indubitably large number of people downloading the update.
