Apple has just announced its Q3 2012 financial results. As expected, the company made a massive amount of money: $8.8 billion of profit, in fact, from $35 billion in revenue.
Perhaps more exciting than incomprehensible numbers is OS X Mountain Lion. In the financial results press release, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed rumors that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be launching tomorrow. Here’s the official word, straight from that aforementioned release:
“We’re thrilled with record sales of 17 million iPads in the June quarter,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve also just updated the entire MacBook line, will release Mountain Lion tomorrow and will be launching iOS 6 this Fall. We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we’ve got in the pipeline.”
Mountain Lion will be available via the Mac App Store for just $19.99 and, if all of your Macs are connected to the Apple ID that you use to purchase the update, you will be able to install it on all of them at no extra charge.
I’ve been waiting for Mountain Lion’s improvements for a long time. I’m going to throw it on my Mac mini server tomorrow, but will hold off putting it on my MacBook Pro until I purchase an SSD.
If you own any Macs, are you going to install it tomorrow, or will you wait to find out if there are any nasty bugs? Let us know!
