Apple Announces OS X Mavericks; Shows Off New Features



During the WWDC 2013 keynote today, Apple and Craig Ferenghi announced the next version of Mac OS X, OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The new California-themed software update will include Finder tabs, tag support, multiple displays and more.

Safari has also been updated with a new bookmarks and massive performance improvements.

iCloud Keychain will hold all of your passwords in the cloud, across all devices. Safari will also auto-suggest secure passwords that you don’t need to remember. It will also remember your previously used credit cards but you have to remember your own security code.

Notifications have also been updated and it looks promising! Push notifications from apps will push iOS alerts to your Mac. Notifications on the lockscreen that show you everything you missed since you last logged on. It will also update all apps in the background.

Maps for OS X has been announced and will push directions from Maps on your Mac to your iPhone.

iBooks and Calendar have also been updated but there’s nothing too important with those.

As usual, Mavericks will be available as a digital download from the Mac App Store this fall. It is available for developer preview now.
