Mac OS X Mavericks, or simply OS X Mavericks, is version 10.9 of Apple Computer's Mac OS X operating system for Macintosh desktop, laptop and server computers.

Apple says you need either Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6), Lion (OS X 10.7), or Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) installed before you can install Mavericks (OS X 10.9). But there are situations in which.
On October 22, 2013 announced that OS X Mavericks, the 10th major release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system, is available for free from the Mac App Store.
With more than 200 new features, OS X Mavericks brings iBooks and Maps to the Mac, includes a new version of Safari, enhances multi-display support, introduces Finder Tabs and Tags and delivers new core technologies for breakthrough power efficiency and performance.
“Mavericks is an incredible release, which introduces significant new apps and features, while also improving the performance and battery life of your Mac,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.
Mac Mavericks Update
“We want every Mac user to experience the latest features, the most advanced technologies, and the strongest security. We believe the best way to do this is to begin a new era of personal computing software where OS upgrades are free.”-->
Apple has released its newest operating system, OS X Mavericks, at the somewhat surprising price of free. Apple’s operating systems have been getting cheaper over the years, with Mountain Lion carrying a light price tag of just $20. Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, has always been free — and generates more interest due to the larger install base — so it’s not out of the ordinary for the normally pricey Apple to release a major product for free. As an average user, does the free OS change the way you use Apple computers?
Operating systems are a big deal, and because of that, most upgrades tend to sport a plethora of new features. In the case of Mavericks, Apple claims that there are over 200 (we’re unsure if abandoning the big cat naming convention counts as one of those features). However, the majority of Mac — and all desktop and laptop — users are average users that just interact with computers in a casual way: browsing the web, checking up on social media, playing games, and so on. Do any of Mavericks’ 200-plus new features change that experience in the way that, for instance, Windows 8 did? Aside from the new desktop wallpaper, will you actually notice that you’re using Mavericks?
Some digital saints (or sinners, depending on how interested you are in Mavericks), have written so much on Apple’s new OS that it borders on the ludicrous. You’d think that a, for instance, 24-page feature about the OS would mean that everything old is new again, but would your parents notice anything covered in those 24 pages? As an average OS X user, the most noticeable update is that your dock will now have little iBooks and Maps icons sitting in it. It’s not Google Maps. If you don’t immediately install Chrome or Firefox onto any fresh OS installation, Safari is new as well, but if you didn’t previously know that, you may not have noticed.
If you like to keep tidy, the best feature of Mavericks — by far — is that you can now open multiple folders in one Finder instance via tabs, just like in a web browser. If you like to communicate as efficiently as possible, the best feature of Mavericks — by far — is that you can respond to Messages, FaceTime, and emails directly in the little Notification Center popups, similar to how you can in third-party clients like Adium or (on Windows) Digsby.
OS X 10.9 also introduces better multi-monitor support — something that was available in the newer Apple operating systems, but not as polished as it is in Mavericks. This time around, each display gets its own desktop, rather than extending the single desktop onto multiple displays — the Dock even invokes on whichever display is in focus. Furthermore, some of Mavericks’ aesthetics lose the skeuomorphism like iOS 7 did all around, but you won’t really notice if you stick to non-Apple apps. Unlike Mavericks’ mobile counterpart, the operating system largely looks the same, and most of the updates are under the hood.
Overall, Mavericks isn’t the in-your-face upgrade that iOS 7 was. Like with its hardware, Apple has been traveling down the iterative update path for quite a while with its desktop OS. Each update makes using a Mac a little better, but unless you’re whatever constitutes a “power user” these days, you never truly notice in your day-to-day operations. It would appear that with the minimal price tag of free, Mavericks brings minimal change. However, like Futurama once said, when you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.
