OS X 10.9 Mavericks

OS X 10.9 Mavericks is an operating system that was designed and developed by Apple from 2013 to 2016 alongside Apple’s personal computers. The system was released on October 22, 2013, for Free from the Mac App Store, or was preinstalled on currently sold computers.

The update emphasized battery life, Finder improvements, other improvements for power users, continued iCloud integration, and brought more of Apple’s iOS apps to OS X.

Mavericks, 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.

This software got the last update (10.9.5) on July 18, 2016, but in the meantime was replaced by a newer version OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Today OS X 10.9 Mavericks is 10 years old!
