Whenever a new OS is released on any platform, there usually lies a series of hidden gems and goodies within, and OS X Mavericks, which released earlier on this week at Apple's special iPad event, is no exception to the rule. As well as the new stock wallpapers, there are 43 "hidden" backgrounds on offer to those on the new, California-themed flavor of OS X, and although they don't necessarily relate to the fruit company's home state, they are still rather easy on the eye. If you are looking for some alternative backdrops for your newly-updated Mac, then check out the details after the jump!

With Apple currently working on iOS 7 beta and offering bi-weekly beta releases for developers to test, it's easy to forget that it is not the only operating system that Apple has on the fire. OS X Mavericks 10.9 is also under development inside Apple's Cupertino HQ, and it too is currently available to developers as part of the company's Developer Preview program.
