Did you recently purchase a new Mac? Did you know that your new Mac is eligible for a free upgrade to Mountain Lion? If you purchased a new Mac after June 11, you’ll be able to claim a copy of Mountain Lion through Apple’s Up-To-Date program.

If you want to take advantage of this free upgrade you’ll have 30 days from the release date to take action. When Mountain Lion is officially launched in the Mac App Store, simply visit Apple’s Up-To-Date page.

All you’ll have to do is fill out a short form with basic contact information and the serial number of your new Mac. When the information is verified, Apple will email you a redemption code to claim a copy of Mountain Lion in the Mac App Store.

The new version of OS X is expected to be released following Apple’s Q3 earnings call scheduled for the afternoon of July 24. Mountain Lion’s core features are inspired by iOS to bring a more unified experience across all Apple devices. New features such as Messages and Notification Center will give you a taste of iOS on your Mac, while enhancements like Gatekeeper will help keep your system secured.
