10.8 via Up to Date Program

Nello Lucchesi
Yesterday I applied for my free Mountain Lion 10.8 upgrades for my new
MacBook Airs:

So far, no response from Apple.

Has anyone received their code yet?

I waited and waited and waited. Then I was looking in the App Store
for something else and noticed Mountain Lion had a Download button
with no price attached.

Downloaded, installed. Still haven't had any official notice from Apple.

Check the App Store.

Cheers,

That's interesting it has a price attached in my App Store of $20.99
(we are in Australia - sometimes makes a difference)

Ars Technica (and Apple) say that Apple will send a code to use on the store:

http://arstechnica.com/apple/2012/07/bought-a-mac-recently-get-your-free-copy-of-mountain-lion/

"Once you submit your claim and Apple verifies you in the system, Apple will send you a download code via e-mail where you can grab Mountain Lion from the App Store—no purchase required."

Just wondering if anyone else received their code.

My point was that I submitted a claim but did not receive a code by
email or any other way. OTOH the App Store simply offered a Download
button where I'm pretty sure it had showed a price earlier in the day.
By then I was willing to just pay up.

My claim was confusing as clicking through from the NZ Store in one
case took me to the Australian claim page. Later in the day I tried a
different link that seemed to take me to an NZ claim page.

It gets extra confusing because Apple in NZ is tied to Apple Australia.

It occurs to me as I write this that since I'd been using the beta
*perhaps* this was what gave me the download and perhaps I haven't
actually installed the release version yet.

Yet when I'd downloaded the beta I didn't just get it from the Store.

Now I'm confused…

Cheers,

Miraz

If you have the GM then the release version is identical. No need to download anything.

undone, raising its hat and grinning and stealing the silver.  It was
music that went down to the feet by way of the pelvis without paying a
call on Mr. Brain. --Soul Music

This morning I've received 2 emails from Apple. One has a PDF
attachment, the other a password to open the attachment.

Too busy watching Olympic Opening ceremonies to delve into the emails yet.

Cheers,
