With Apple being secretive about the release date there’s been endless amounts of speculation on the normal sites around the Lion release date. Today’s roomers however are looking quite likely to be true. The mid July release date seemed to come and go with no release in site.
Now the Apple ‘Whispers’ are starting to believe the release date will be the 22nd of July. The 22nd is a Friday, which figures as history states all OS X releases have been on a Friday. ]
From as early as 2002, Jaguar was released on the 23rd of August, followed by Panther arriving on the 24th of October in 2003, following suit Tiger hit the shops on the 29th of April 2005. 2 years later Leopard hit the shops on the 26th of October 2007, and finally Snow Leopard hit the shelves on the 28th of August 2009. All of which have been a Friday release.
Now with Apple store staff being advised holidays are not allowed on Friday the 22nd, it would make perfect sense for the latest release to hit the App Store.
