Apple Targeting Late October for OS X Mavericks Launch

The current buzz among Apple fans is the forthcoming release of the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS7, as well as the release of new iPhone designs. Both were spotlighted at the WWDC conference back in June. A number of well placed sources state that news regarding the release of these to the general public is days away. Also spotlighted at WWDC was Apple's new desktop operating system, called OS X Mavericks, which sources are saying will be released in October. Previously, it was believed that Mavericks would be released alongside iOS7.

In a recent article in The L.A. Times, Salvador Rodriguez noted that Apple released the last two OS X versions, Lion and Mountain Lion, in July of 2010 and 2011, respectively. Why the move to October? Many contend that Apple had to reallocate software engineers working on Mavericks to iOS7, in order to have it ready for its targeted release date. 9To5 Mac, a reputable Apple news site, speculates that news regarding Maverick's release could be released after the company releases their fourth quarter earnings in late October. Numerous sources have noted that, in the past, Apple has released operating system news after releasing an earnings report.

Mavericks has been in beta since it was unveiled at WWDC. News about Mavericks' features have leaked to the public. For starters, Mavericks will not be an overhaul, as was Lion and Mountain Lion. The Finder application, will see a major upgrade, and allow tags and tabbed browsing. 9To5Mac goes on to point out that previously, users had to rely on third-party software or hacks to utilize such features. Other potential upgrades include a faster version of Apple's browser, Safari.

Other applications seeing an upgrade include Calendar and Notes/Reminders. Improved multiple monitor support is also rumored to be in the cards. Rumors have also circulated, but have not been substantiated, that Mavericks will feature Siri compatibility. Based on rumors from reliable sources, Apple will not only be releasing the new iPhone, iOS7 and Mavericks over the next few months, but new versions of the Mac, MacBook and iPad, all of which are sure to keep Apple fans happy.
