Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference developers kicks off next week, therefore people are beginning to get excited about what Apple will unveil at the show, a recent article posted on AppleInsider suggests that Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will make an appearance.

AppleInsider’s article points out that a developer build of Mac OS X 10.6.8 features a change which is said to enhance the Mac App Store for Mac OS X Lion, this suggests that not only is Lion coming pretty soon but it will also be purchasable via the Mac App Store.

Despite being able to easily purchase and install Mac OS X 10.7 Lion from the Mac App Store it is thought that Lion will also be available on a disc, this ensures that everyone will be able to install the new OS version no-matter their situation.

Generally Apple’s software announcements result in them going live later that day, therefore we could potentially see Mac OS X 10.7 hit the Mac App Store sometime next week. Obviously there is a chance hat AppleInsider’s article is inaccurate, however it has been roughly 22 months since Snow Leopard was released therefore a major release is long overdue. It has to be said that it also makes sense to roll-out the update via the Mac App Store which was launched earlier this year.

Do you think a Max OS X 10.7 Lion launch will come next week?
