Mac OS X is a new chapter in the iBooks story begins. Now you can launch the iBooks app on your Mac and the books you’ve already downloaded on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch will automatically appear in your library. And there are over 2 million more books in the iBooks Store, ready for you to download with just a few clicks.1 Reading books is intuitive and easy — turn pages with a swipe and zoom in on images with a pinch. If you’re a student hitting the books, keep as many open as you like and search through them with ease. And when you take notes, highlight passages, or add a bookmark on your Mac, iCloud pushes them to all your devices automatically. iCloud even remembers which page you’re on. So if you start reading on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you can pick up right where you left off on your Mac.
Mac OS X updates are typically a paid upgrade, but Apple has finally embraced the free distribution model, including a bunch of new app updates to boot.
As users are now naturally used to browsing and managing the Web with tabbed interfaces, one is left to wonder why first-party developers never incorporated this into the native OS sooner. You can now browse your directories with similar Safari-like prowess. Mavericks also brings the ability to add tags to each file. Users can now label each file with a tag and color for quick indexed search.
You can now create responses directly from notifications. Supported services include Facebook, Twitter, FaceTime, e-mail, instant message, calendar events, and reminders.
Mavericks revamps the way your Macbook allocates its system resources to save power and keep your apps running smoothly by drastically reducing processor consumption for inactive windows.
The newly released Mac OS X Mavericks makes it the first time Apple will be providing an upgrade to the Mac device for free. With more than 150 new distinctive features like the iBooks and Maps as well as an inclusion of a new enhanced version of Safari, the operating system comes with improved multi-display feature and the introduction of tabs and tags that provide the ability to attach a tag to each file. It also boasts of reduced processor power consumption which means your PC works pretty fast without overclocking the processor’s speed which, most times, is the culprit for the high power consumption associated with computer processors. This is definitely worth going for.
The iBook provides direct access to your iBook library. You can also use the built-in map to plan trips and then send it to your phone for voice navigation. The map comes with a calendar that can calculate an estimated time a trip will take while it also gives you a weather forecast for your destination.
Another exciting addition is the iCloud Keychain that stores usernames and passwords of your favorite websites, including your credit card and Wifi passwords. This is done through a highly secured channel to make sure you are not vulnerable to hackers and online thieves.
Mavericks also provides important performance enhancements for a system that support integrated graphics by providing OpenCL support. The new version includes more reliability of Virtual Private Network connections and uses USB cards for their authentication.
So, you’ve decided to download an older version of Mac OS X. There are many reasons that could point you to this radical decision. To begin with, some of your apps may not be working properly (or simply crash) on newer operating systems. Also, you may have noticed your Mac’s performance went down right after the last update. Finally, if you want to run a parallel copy of Mac OS X on a virtual machine, you too will need a working installation file of an older Mac OS X. Further down we’ll explain where to get one and what problems you may face down the road.
Mavericks continues Apple’s recent trend of launching more regular
low-cost updates to OS X without any major changes but which add some new
features and improve integration with iOS. The most notable additions are from
iOS such as the much troubled Apple Maps and e-book library iBooks.
Other system enhancements include Finder tabs, support for multiple displays
and Keychain integration with iCloud.
The launch of Apple Maps on iOS wasn’t exactly covered in glory but some of the problems that plagued it on launch have been ironed out and now Mac users have a useful alternative to Google Maps. Obviously, Maps isn’t as useful on a Mac as it is on an iPhone or iPad (unless you like to navigate around town carrying your Mac), but it is useful for planning itineraries and journeys which you can then sync with iCloud for using instantly on your iPhone or iPad.
