Apple launches Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, available through the Mac App Store only

Apple has just released the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion into the Mac App Store. It’s available everywhere and you can get it right now.

The Lion requires a compatible Intel-based Mac and Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. It costs $30/€24 and you can find it in the Mac App Store right away.

In case you need to know more about what’s new in Lion, you can read all about in our blog post here.

If you bought a Mac between 6 June and 20 July, you qualify for a free upgrade. You can learn how to get your free update here.

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion weighs 3.49GB, so the download process will take a while. And the install process requires a reboot unlike Apple’s promises. Still installing it takes less than an hour.
