If I downloan Mac osx lion, does that mean that i will have to pay for Mac osx mountain lion

If I download Mac os x lion, does that mean that i will have to pay for Mac os x mountain lion? or will it be like an upgrade for free?
I am just not to sure as to whether I buy it now or later? Please help.
Thanks.

If you do not find Lion or Mountain Lion features compelling, I recommend you not buy it AT ALL!
10.6.8 works for most of the stuff I do, and I only got 10.7 to play with it.
If you are using
Photoshop CS2
AppleWorks
Word 2004 or earlier
Quicken 2007 or earlier
Eudora 6
FileMaker 6
look long and hard at 10.7 -- these Applications along with hundreds of other less-popular titles are no longer supported in these versions!!

    Apps previously purchased will continue to operate wherever you are.    However; you'll not be able to update them other than by using the original purchase details.   What this means is that you can only 'purchase' from a country's store if you have a valid credit card and residence of and in that country.

  • Why do we have to buy mountain lion when we bought lion? Others who didn't purchase lion don't have to pay for it to move to mountain lion

    why do we have to buy mountain lion when we bought lion? Others who didn't purchase lion don't have to pay for it to move to mountain lion.

    As far as I know the only people not having to pay for Mountain Lion are the ones that have purchased a apple computer after the 4th of june or something. These people get a free upgrade. All others will have to pay for a copy of Mountian Lion.
    Do you maybe have a source, which states that others don't have to pay for it, where people that have bought Lion do have to pay?
    With kind regards,
    Wes

  • Does anyone know if I would have to pay to upgrade OS X Lion to the OS X Mountain Lion?

    Hey, I am looking at buying a Mac Pro but have just seen thaat Apple has a new OS X Mountain Lion coming out htis winter.... Does Anyone know if I would have to pay to upgrade from OS X Lion to the OS X Mountain Lion?  Sorry this will be my first Mac and I would like to buy it with the latest OS.  I would hate to buy now then a newer OS comes out...  Can anyone help?

    Well, as both hardware and software seem to be on an accelerating schedule of renewals, you might never buy a mac on that philosophy!
    Apple normally offer a period of grace if an new OS comes out a month or so after a new purchase (i.e., you can get a free upgrade), but longer than that an you have to pay.
    Of course, there's no compulsion to upgrade to the new OS just because it exists. Plenty of people are still running Leopard 10.5.8.

  • I'm a video editor working primarily in FCP7 and just purchased the latest Mac Pro running Yosemite ? Does anyone know if any options have become available for running FCP7 on this platform ?

    I'm a video editor working primarily in FCP7 and just purchased the latest Mac Pro running Yosemite ? Does anyone know if any options have become available for running FCP7 on this platform ?

    It would "run" (more like Sunday stroll or walk) if you installed Snow Leopard in a VM. Especially if you have 6-core (and would help to have 6 or 8 cores anyway if you were able to and intend to make best use of nMP for video editing).
    If you "classic" Mac Pro was 2009 or later, adding two AMD graphic cards, upgrading the processor to 8-core 3.xGHz would have gotten you a FCP-X capable machine and still dual boot and use Snow Leopard as needed.
    Any Mac Pro can now use 1000MB/sec SSD PCIe blade to boot from and/or for scratch and editing to help improve work flow.

  • Bought a new mac last weekend do I have to pay for Mountain Lion

    I bought a MacBook Air on Saturday but it didn't have Mountain Lion installed. Do I have to pay for an upgrade?

    No, go to http://www.apple.com/osx and then Upgrade and go to the up-to-date program and register your purchase.  You will receive an email with a redemption code to download ML for free.

  • Hi, I need the program of access from the office, so i'm going to but the Microsoft office 365 university, will i have to but any other program to use the access from my mac? or to open any database that I will have did from any other computer (not mac)?

    There has never been a Mac version of Access. Microsoft never created one, realising that it was very inferior to the FileMaker Pro database application.
    So if you must run Access you will have to run Windows on your mac.

  • I preordered an album , and it is not going on my phone. it only says purchased , does that mean i have to pay for it again?

    i preordered the weeknds new album , and it came out tonight. next to the songs , it just says "purchased" . it isn't downloading or anything , does this mean i have to pay for it again?

    Does it show in the Purchased tab in the iTunes store app on your phone for downloading ? Or on your computer's iTunes does it download via the Store > Check For Available Downloads menu option so that you can sync it to your phone ?

  • TS4006 when using iCloud between mac and pad, what does this mean - "your iPad will  no longer back up to your computer automatically when you sync with iTunes"

    when using iCloud between mac and pad, what does this mean - "your iPad will  no longer back up to your computer automatically when you sync with iTunes"
    DONT WORRY EVERYONE, FOUND THE ANSWER I NEEDED FROM ANOTHER POSTING - THANK YOU

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You don't need to do anything, you have chosen to back up to iCloud instead of iTunes.
    Being able to back up to the cloud can be very useful, especially if you don't have access to a computer or have infrequent access to one, however unless you specifically need to use iCloud for back up, you will find backing up to iTunes significantly more convenient and possibly more reliable.

  • If I bought a game on my iPod that is also sold for the macbook do I still have to pay for it on the Mac?

    Yes. Because iOS and Mac OS X are two entirely different operating systems.

  • I was given a 16Gb ipad mini retina with cellular but I need more storage. We do not have the receipt as it is a gift. I like to swap for a 64Gb unit and pay for the difference my self, how do I go about doing that? I have not open the packaging yet.

    Hi
    Thanks for that. Yes, the ipad was purchased recently. I called Apple last Friday and they ask for the receipt. I wonder if anyone were able to swap their ipad for a larger storage in the past at the apple store without a receipt? 16Gb is such a small storage.

  • TS4006 IPad not showing up in devices.  Does this mean we didn't have it set up properly or just that it's not connected to wi if?

    My IPad is not showing up on Find my IPhone.  Does this mean we don't have it set up properly or it's not connected to Wifi?  It was stolen last night.  Trying to locate it

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can only locate your device when it is logged into iCloud and 'Find My Phone' is enabled, additionally the device will need to be switched on and connected to a wifi or cellular network.
    Unfortunately, you cannot activate iCloud or 'Find My Phone' remotely.
    If the device is wiped by you or another, you may not be able to locate the device (although some have reported they can)

  • HT202879 Other Word Processors than Pages? & why do we have to pay for an upgrade that is incomplete?

    I am very unhappy.
    In order to access my documents from iCloud I have to upgrade to Mavericks (free, alright) and the new Pages, for which I have to pay.
    The new Pages (and Numbers etc) does not have the same functionality as the one I have been using - yet I have to pay for it. Alright, Apple promises to upgrade in the next six months and add the new functionality. This is not good enough.
    This was a very unpleasant surprise today - when I went to my document that I have been working on on my iPhone and my Mac at various times during the day and the Mac one had changed to 'Untitled 47' and the version on my iPhone would not open on my Mac unless I upgraded to the new Pages - $19.99 - and to OSX Mavericks - free - but I don't want to upgrade yet. And I don't want to pay for a new version of Pages that clearly does not have the same functionality(according to the user comments and the apple page that  this discussion is about).
    I have praised Apple to high heaven for the functionality of iCloud. But this really really annoys me.
    If there's anything I hate its a company I am relying on forcing me to upgrade before they've sorted out the bugs.
    I am definitely considering changing to a different company's word processor - if only they had a word processor that I could use on my Mac and iOS devices.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks Tom! Following your advice I posted a (shorter) version at feedback.
    And thanks for those hints. Yes I've been looking at those ones.
    IA Writer and Byword both can use the iCloud.
    Writeroom only syncs using Dropbox.
    Of course they're very minimal apps compared to Pages, or Word.
    I feel very depressed.
    Perhaps I will have to use one of these and then import into Word for final editing.
    Believe it or not, for a minute I thought MS Word might be a contender for iOS syncing - because there is this thing called Office 365. But look at the reviews.
    https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/office-mobile-for-office-365/id541164041
    I really don't want to deal with all the problems of updating to Mavericks just now.
