Today at the WWDC 2013 conference in San Francisco, Apple took the wraps off the latest update for their Mac computers, OS X 10.9. Named Mavericks, after a surfing location in California, the release features updates such as iBooks, file tagging, multiple display support and notifications.
Starting things off, OS X Mavericks will now come with iBooks and Maps, just like the rest of Apple's iOS devices. The calender application has also been upgraded with a new overall look, to go along with continuous scrolling and suggestions that make it easier to input new entries.
Apple also added a couple new features to Safari, including redesigning Top Sites and adding a new Shared Links tab that displays sites shared through Twitter and LinkedIn. Power consumption was also adjusted on the browser, as Apple claims that it bests both Chrome and Firefox in that aspect.
The new features didn't stop there though, as Mavericks also comes with the ability to tag files for easier organization and to open multiple Finder tabs within the same window. Multiple display support has also been added to OS X 10.9, a feature that had been lacking for quite some time.
The full update should be released sometime this fall, and will be available through the Mac App Store as usual.
