OS X 10.9 Mavericks is an operating system that was designed and developed by Apple from 2013 to 2014 alongside Apple’s personal computers. The system has been released on October 22, 2013, and was available for Free from Mac App Store, or was preinstalled on currently sold computers. This software gets the last update (10.9.5) on September 17, 2014, and later has been replaced by a newer version OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
The update emphasized battery life, Finder improvements, other improvements for power users, and continued iCloud integration, as well as bringing more of Apple’s iOS apps to OS X.
Mavericks, which was named after the surfing location in Northern California, was the first in the series of OS X releases named for places in Apple’s home state; earlier releases used the names of big cats.
OS X Mavericks was the first OS X major release to be a free upgrade and the second overall since Mac OS X 10.1 Puma.
Today OS X 10.9 Mavericks is 10 years old!
