View Full Version : Didn't have to pay for OS X Mountain Lion...

Jul 25, 2012, 08:10 AM
Hi Everyone,
I am a registered Dev, and I used my account to download OS X Mountain Lion betas, and this morning, when I went to the Dev center to get my code to download the final release, it wasn't updated. So I went to the Mac App Store and it just said download, it didn't make me pay. Is this normal, is Apple just detecting betas in your account and giving it to you for free, or is this just a fluke?


I went to my purchases tab, and it now says I purchased OS X Mountain Lion on July 9th, 2012.

I think it's counting the GM seed as the final version. Haha

Is the ML GM equivalent to what is in the App Store?

GM = final build. No difference.

So then I guess if you downloaded the GM, you got the final release for free because Apple didn't change anything. That's neat.
