first_imgThe GM or “Golden Master” build of OS X Lion is in the hands of developers today, meaning Apple’s newest version of their prized operating system is basically finished and ready to ship. If no major bugs are found in the new build, Lion could be released any time in the next couple of weeks leading up to an earnings report on July 19th.Earlier speculation had Apple releasing the update on the 19th, along with a refreshed line of Macbook Air notebooks. Since the folks at Apple tend to spice up those earnings reports with news of recent product releases, it’s a good bet that Lion will be launching at least a few days beforehand, if not a full week. The refreshed Airs, on the other hand, are still living in the land of rumors and hearsay.OS X Lion will be available only through the Mac App Store as an update for OS X Snow Leopard. The update will cost $29, and you can sign up at Apple’s site to get an email notification when the release is live.Whichever day Apple chooses to release Lion, one thing’s for certain at this point — it’s coming this month, and soon. When a GM build is seeded to developers, it means that, for all intents and purposes, the project is wrapping up and getting ready for a full public launch. On top of that, Apple’s official Lion page now has a note slapped on top of it that says “Coming in July.” You can’t get much more concrete than that without circling a date on a calendar.Update: 9to5Mac is reporting that they’ve been told by sources that the date could be the 14th.via Apple Insiderlast_img read more
