Apple Mountain Lion hits 3 million downloads in 4 days

Apple Inc.’s newest cat is roaring: the tech company said Mountain Lion, its newest OS X operating system for desktops and laptops, surpassed three million downloads barely four days after its release.

This feat makes Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) the “most successful” OS X release so far, Apple said in a news release posted on its website.

“Just a year after the incredibly successful introduction of Lion, customers have downloaded Mountain Lion over three million times in just four days, making it our most successful release ever,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Mountain Lion, which claims to have more than 200 new features, is the ninth major release of Apple’s OS X platform for desktop and laptop computers.

It can be downloaded from the Mac App Store as an upgrade to Lion (OS X 7) or Snow Leopard (OS X 6) users for $19.99.

Among Mountain Lion’s new features are the Messages app, Notification Center, system-wide Sharing, Dictation, AirPlay Mirroring and Game Center.

Facebook integration is coming soon as a software upgrade, Apple said. — TJD, GMA News
