One of the main features I'm looking forward to is the ability to assign my phone number to iMessage.

With iOS6 being released to the masses on Wednesday, I figured 10.8.2 would be released at the same time. However, Apple didn't mention anything about ML or iMessage during yesterdays keynote.

iOS6 provides the unification for non iPhone iOS devices (iTouch, iPad).

Anyone have a guess/rumor on 10.8.2's release to the world so Macs can finally unify as well?

OS X updates and iOS updates are unrelated and are released independently of each other.

Since they integrate and unify features across devices, the smart money would be on 10.8.2 being released right around the 19th.

I've been using 10.8.2 for a few weeks now and can tell you my user experience with Messages has been perfect. You should enjoy it!

That's what I was thinking, but there was no mention of it. During the Keynote in July, Scott F. talked about both the Mac and iOS unifying AppleID and phone numbers. I was disappointed ML didn't ship with it ready. Then determine iOS6 was required as well...so I figured the 10.8.2 and iOS6 would be married for a same date release. However, Apple didn't mention it at all.

? Does Apple release GMs for incremental OSX updates? If not, my money is on the 18th or 20th to help relieve pressure on Apple's servers.

OS X updates and iOS updates are unrelated and are released independently of each other.

That is not true at all. There are frequently OS X updates required to support new iOS features and the releases of both updates often occur close together for just this reason. For example 10.8.2 includes a new feature in Mail that allows passes to be added to the new iOS 6 Passbook app.

Frequently these relate to a specific app and are not updates to OS X, but to the apps, such as the iTunes 10.7 update that was just released to provide iOS 6 support. If you look at the history, Mac OS X updates are not scheduled to occur in step with iOS updates. They are independent.

OP asked about 10.8.2. Go look at the feature list (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/09/11/apple-seeds-near-final-os-x-10-8-2-developer-seed-ahead-of-media-event/) of 10.8.2. Like I said it lists features that require iOS6 and vice versa. These are features that are not going to get added in an iTunes or iPhoto update.

From the MR article:

Apple will likely coordinate the release OS X Mountain Lion alongside iOS 6. We will learn more tomorrow at Apple's media event.

Just acknowledge you were mistaken and move along. :)

I've been having video (files and streams) and games stutter in fullscreen ever since I updated to Mtn. Lion, and have seen a few posts of others having similar symptoms. Does anyone know if 10.8.2 fixes this?

By then we'll have a good idea what impressions Win8/Surface is having on the world. :eek:

Sorry, but today you're proven wrong. 10.8.2 was the final unification piece to iMessage.

I am a bit confused with game center, when I read the update info I understood that we could link facebook with it so that our facebook friends would show up in there and be able to send them requests from there.

I also don't have the Facebook synced with my contacts like it suggests, maybe I am completely missing this 'single sign on' for Facebook but I've looked through settings and I cannot find a place to enter my login info for facebook to OS X itself..
