After months of waiting and nine developer previews, Apple has finally decided to release its latest desktop operating system. Announced back in June, at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, the OS X Mavericks, Apple’s first non-cat OS X, is now ready to meet the public consumption.
As the Cupertino Company itself announced, the update is available as a free download to those starting from OS X Snow Leopard up to Mountain Lion. The update brings multiple notable changes from last year’s release of Mountain Lion.
As most of you know, Apple has offered from the past couple of years, annual updates of its desktop OS X, updates that brought multiple changes, but in the same time, the Fruit Company has managed to keep those alterations subtle and productive. The OS X Mountain Lion was perhaps one of the most notable OS X updates since it brought a more significant update with multiple iOS-like features such as iMessage, Game Center, Reminders and Notification Center.
However, the Mavericks update is, so far, free for everyone, which is a premiere for the Fruit Company, as well. Back in 2011 and in 2012, when Lion and Mountain Lion were revealed, Apple charged people with a small download fee. But now, with a new overall iOS 7-like experience, OS X Mavericks is offered free of charge for everybody.
For those who still do not know, Craig Federighi, the head of iOS and OS X, tried to offer a new insight of what the new desktop OS update brings. So far, we know about the new tabbed navigation, which helps users to organize their folders, and the capacity of adjusting its memory based on the specific task in hand. In the same time, OS X Mavericks brings iCloud Keychain support, Safari Push Notifications and many other amazing features.
The OS X Mavericks is compatible with the following Mac models:
