Update ’em if you got it! Apple has released the GM version of OS X 10.9, codenamed Mavericks to its Developers.
At the last major Apple announcement earlier this summer, information regarding Apple’s next desktop OS release was announced. Recently, Apple announced the GM availability of their latest desktop OS, code named Mavericks, on Friday 2013-10-04.
Mavericks is largely a maintenance release. It has a number of back end changes that improve performance. It also has some interesting user enhancements like FaceTime Audio Calling, FaceTime AutoAnswer (FT does not have to be running), multiple monitor support, tabs in Finder and a new, redesigned Calendar, among other enhancements.
I’ve got the new OS installed on my MacBook Pro; and odds are, that if you have a Mac running Mountain Lion, you’re going to be able to run Mavericks without an issue.
Stay tuned to Soft32, as I plan on having an extensive write-up on the new features in Mavericks in the next week or so. Mavericks is due to hit the streets before the end of October 2013.
