Earlier today, Apple essentially completed work on the first public release of Mac OS X Lion with the seeding of the Golden Master version of the product to developers. This Golden Master stage essentially marks today’s release as the release that the public will be getting their hands on. Now, we have been told by reliable sources that Apple is planning to ship Mac OS X Lion on July 14th.

The release will come through the Mac App Store for $29.99. Separately, a server version of OS X Lion will be available via the Mac App Store for $49.99. This July 14th release date backs up with what we have heard regarding the new MacBook Air‘s release date. We cannot confirm, though, that the MacBook Air will be released on Lion day, but it does make sense – seeing that Lion has constantly been marketed alongside the MacBook Air.

Our sources do warn, though, that this release date can be pushed back at anytime due to any last minute bugs. A situation like this happened with iOS 4.2 last year. Apple ended up pushing the release date back and seeded multiple Golden Master builds to developers until the software was perfect for its public release.
