Rumor: Mac OS X Lion launch on June 14

9 to 5 Mac is reporting that Apple is planning to launch OS X Lion on Tuesday, June 14.

According to the site’s sources, Apple Retail had a visual overhaul the night before, with a possible emphasis on software. The site’s also heard that retail levels of Snow Leopard DVDs are slowly dwindling.

Historically, Apple has used WWDC to launch a developer release of the next version of Mac OS X with whatever new goodies are announced during the keynote.┬áSurely, there are things that will end up in Lion that aren’t present in the current developer preview. It takes time for developers and features to get ready for a public release. A week’s time isn’t enough, based on what’s been done for years.

That said, we’ll know tomorrow.
