OS X Lion Getting Installed at Apple Stores and AppleCare Support Centers



It’s almost here, folks! After weeks of anticipation and rumors about OS X Lion’s public launch, we’ve heard word that copies of Lion are shipping to Apple Stores for the Mac demo units on the store floor. Additionally, Lion is also getting installed at AppleCare support centers.

Lion is rumored to be dropping this Wednesday morning at 8:30 AM ET.


“We’ve now been able to confirm that Apple Retail stores have begun receiving final copies of OS X Lion today. The installations have come on hard drive and are meant for the Apple Retail demo computers on the store floor.”


“We’ve received word that all AppleCare reps are now receiving Lion training as well as getting their computers upgraded to Lion.  The process began over the weekend and looks to be completing today.

We’ve heard numerous reports that new Store display materials have been arriving over the past week as well.”

Updated Macbook Airs, Mac Minis, and a new Cinema Display with Thunderbolt are also expected to launch with OS X Lion this week.
