Mac OS X Lion released today

The wait is over, Mac OS X Lion is here.

After months of teasing, Apple has finally confirmed that Mac OS X Lion will be released today, 20 July. The news was delivered by the company’s top financial suit, Peter Oppenheimer, during last night’s conference call regarding Apple’s latest results.

While Oppenheimer said the new software would be up for grabs from the Mac App Store today, there was no news of any new hardware to match. New MacBooks, MacBook Airs, Mac Minis and Mac Pros are all expected to be launched to coincide with the new operating system.

OS X Lion promises to bring a more iOS-like design and feel to Macs, with Apple looking to unify its approach to its mobile and desktop operating systems. New features include an iOS-style Launchpad, full screen apps and beefed up multitouch.

Lion will cost £20.99. Keep your eyes on Apple’s virtual app emporium and let us know when you’ve snagged it and what your first thoughts are. You can tell us over on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
