Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks – General View

During the WWDC 2013, Apple announced their new operating system, the Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks main purpose is to add a better integration with Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS versions. The Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks will bring with its release over 200 extra features comparing it with the previous OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion system.

Release date, price and features of Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Unfortunately, Apple did not announce a specific date for the Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks release, but they informed us that it will be available for public in Autumn. The price was also not published, but since the previous OS version, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, was very cheap ($20) we expect that the price of the Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks will be the same.

The new Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks will save a multi-monitor support, which the Mountain Lion was not “successfully” suporting. The Mountain Lion boosted the system’s feature set and its security, and it was accepted by a very large number of people. Unfortunately, some iOS features could not work properly with Mountain Lion, such as iCloud documents full screen mode, but the Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks is able to support multi-monitor. A great update of Mavericks OS, is that the dock and menu bar follows the user on whatever screen they are working on and each of the displays are shown independently.
