Mac OS X 10.7 Lion was released several months ago back in July, and not surprisingly it looks like Apple has already started work on OS X 10.8. According to Mac Rumors, this seems to be based on their web logs, which has started showing an increasing number of visitors running on OS X 10.8.
Apparently OS X 10.8 started popping up in August, but has recently started to see an increase over the past few months. While Mac Rumors has not ruled out the possibility that the data could have been falsified, what they do note is that the origins of these visitors running on OS X 10.8 are coming from Apple’s company itself along with its surrounding areas. This seems to be in keeping with the pattern that Mac Rumors discovered back in 2009 with OS X 10.7.
However for those looking forward to OS X 10.8 and whatever goodies it may be packing, based on Apple’s trend of releasing major OS updates every 2 years, the earliest we can expect to see OS X 10.8 will most probably be in 2013.
