About a week ago, we reported that thanks to reports of Apple Stores pulling overnight shifts on the 24th of July, it seemed very likely that a release of OS X Mountain Lion could be taking place on the 25th of July. Safe to say the rumored 19th of July date did not pan out, leading us to believe that the 25th does seem like a plausible candidate for a release. Thanks to the folks at 9to5 Mac, they have received a screenshot which shows that OS X Mountain Lion has been seeded to Apple Care representatives who are testing them on their main Macs at work as opposed to remote computing on special Macs which was how they have been testing the OS for the past few weeks.
This is the same Golden Master build that was seeded to developers earlier this month, and we can only assume that all of this is leading up to the 24th of July which is when everything will be prepped for its release on the 25th. Of course this is by no means a guarantee, but everything does seem to be pointing towards that possibility. Either way we will be keeping our eyes peeled, so be sure to check back with us on the 25th of July to see if these reports have panned out!
