Mac OS X Lion not launching today after all, apparently
But rumors suggest that the new Apple operating system will be available to consumers tomorrow as a download from the Mac App Store.
Another day is upon us, and so far, there isn't any sign of Mac OS X Lion. But one rumor suggests users won't need to wait much longer.
Chinese Mac site MIC Gadget is reporting that Mac OS X Lion will launch tomorrow. The publication said that Apple stores in China are planning "overnights" tonight. Overnights are typically used for Apple to train employees on new products and refresh the store's display with updated products.
Last week, 9to5Mac had cited "overseas sources" saying that the, and therefore the operating system would launch today.
When users finally get their hands on the OS update, they will find a host of new features, including a "resume" feature, allowing them to pick up where they left off in programs, and a Launchpad to see installed applications.
For its part, Apple has not specified an exact launch date for Mac OS X Lion, saying only that it would be made available in July. The platform will be released on the company's Mac App Store as a digital download for $29.99.
