As per the announcement at WWDC 2013, Apple has just released its first Developer Preview of OS X Mavericks 10.9. In keeping with the nature of the past few releases, OS X 10.9 delivers a plethora of rather minor changes which, collectively, make for a pretty decent overall improvement. Details after the break!
Ditching the theme of big cats with its OS X releases, Apple has instead gone down the direction of its California home state in the naming of the next few installments, and first up is OS X Mavericks. The Cupertino-based company has brought a host of new changes to the fold, including Finder tabs, multiple displays Tagging and more, and we've got all the details coming right up after the break.
With the iPad and iPhone being so popular amongst a worldwide audience, many have questioned Apple's long term interest in the Mac, as well as OS X. With the Mac Pro long overdue an update and Apple seemingly more interested in its iOS devices than its OS X ones. According to 9to5Mac though, Apple will update its computer operating system this year, and it will be an update that will please Apple's power users.
Apple's range of iPhone, iPad and Mac hardware generates significant interest and revenue for the company, but there is also an extremely healthy interest in the software that leaves through the company's Cupertino doors and ends up on our digital shelves. The company's iOS firmware has been top of the discussion agenda over the last few weeks for various reasons, but we mustn't forget the recent speculation and interest surrounding the next-generation of Mac OS X. We are under no illusion that Apple will manage to blindside us with certain aspects of OS X 10.9, but it seems that the current recruitment drive for interface engineers is suggesting that Apple's next desktop OS could come bundled with the Siri digital assistant, as mentioned before as well.
Some Mac users may still be getting to grips with the intricacies of OS X Mountain Lion and all that it has to offer, but reports today are suggesting that Apple is well underway with testing of the next major release of OS X. Currently sitting at version OS X 10.8.2, the operating system that powers Apple's Mac machines, if the reports prove to be accurate then it looks like the Cupertino based company is planning on making some major changes in OS X 10.9 that could see the company's digital Siri assistant and Maps integration being offered to users.
