Apple is expected to drop its new OS X Mountain Lion software on July 25, according to a recent report. A previous announcement had claimed the upgrade would be launched this month, however, no exact date was ever given. However, according to 9to5Mac July 25 now seems the most likely release date.

The tech site believes this will be the date Apple fans can expect, because Apple retail stores will be performing overnight updates to stores the night before; indicating the launch of a new product.
That date also would correspond with vacation black out dates MacRumors had earlier indicated were being imposed on third party company employees who are hired to reinforce Apple during product releases.
However, Apple is being its usual quiet self, and has refused to officially confirm whether July 25 will be the date of the release.
In a previous announcement Apple has said that it would launch OS X Mountain Lion in July for $19.99 and that it will include a number of improvements and features such as new Reminders and Messages.
Other features would include upgraded Notification Center, Power Nap, Dictation, Gatekeeper among other things.
Mac App Stores will make the product available on the alleged release date.
The Mountain Lion update will not be launched alongside any other major hardware launch, unlike 2011 when new Minis and MacBook Airs were launched at the same time.
