• Use tabs with full-screen Finder to organise and access all your files and folders.

• Organise files with tags no matter where they’re located — in iCloud or on your Mac.
• Give a document as many tags as you want.
• Click a tag in the Finder sidebar to see all the files with that tag. 

Advanced Technologies 
• With energy-saving core technologies in OS X Mavericks, you can surf the web longer on a single charge.

• App Nap regulates applications you’re not using so they consume less energy.

iCloud Keychain on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch requires iOS 7.0.3.

Multiple Display with Apple TV and an HDTV works with Apple TV (2nd generation or newer), iMac (mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Pro (early 2011 or newer) and Mac Pro (late 2013).

Comments and Ratings for OS X Mavericks

No more beachball of death! (10.9.2)
09/03/2014 18:52:00 4/5 By TheGreatDaniel
It seems my Mac has a new lease of life… I upgraded to Mavericks with the knowledge that this may kill my aged Macbook Air 2009, but it has made it much better to my surprise! I have seen the negative reviews and thought it would be suicide for the old girl, but no…. it works. The beach ball of death has gone (I hope forever). Even the Mac App Store App, which previously took about 2-3 minutes to open (which I’m writing this on) works quite well. It would seem Apple have done a good job at last with an operaring system. My Mac has been virtually unusable for the past 3 years until now (always had the latest OS X upgrade in case you ask). I’ve tried clean installs; 1) with time machine 2) with not using time machine and just starting it with nothing installed. 3) booting from an external drive in case it was my harddrive that was moribund. I’ve tried it all and it has just been sooooo slow, but now it works. I wouldn’t buy another Mac now, as the iPads are so good, but if you have an old Mac that has seen better days, then give it a go (do back up before in case it doesn’t help).

Tread very carefully!! MacBook Pro 2012 Build - Logic Board Issue (10.9.1)
09/03/2014 16:25:00 1/5 By Psyissi
I have a MacBook Pro 2012 build and was running Lion.. I made the mistake of installing Mavericks, many good reasons why this was a mistake, most of which have already been documented in previous reviews. However, there is a double edge to this and this is really important... Due to the numerous problems being experienced, to get to the root of the issues, I was fortunate enough to be able to carry out the following.. With the help of three friends, all using MacBook Pro's purchased at the same time, all suffering from similar problems that seemed to appear at the same time, Mavericks upgrade, we decided to benchmark test all machines. To be clear, the specs of our machines are identical, all with 16Gb Ram, 500Gb hard drives, no other ancillary devices being used in this test. We clean installed Mavericks on two machines and clean installed the latest Lion on another two! Due to the anomalies we were experiencing under extensive identical usage profiles throughout our test, we had to extend our testing exercise. We repeated the clean install again with opposite OS's and still found some major operational inconsistencies. In a nutshell, we had in fact discovered that three machines had logic board problems at the very least. The one good machine out performed the other three regardless of Lion or Maverick's being installed. Even on this machine it is true to say that Mavericks was much slower and sluggish compared to Lion. Three of us have now had the logic boards replaced by Apple and two of us are still having dreadful and unacceptable problems. In effect, we have uncovered and contribute to the evidence that, certainly MacBook Pro's have some major, deep rooted hardware reliability issues. We would urge anybody with a MacBook Pro to engage in a deeper examination of the whole setup, not just the OS.

This is great! (10.9.2)

This update has revolutionised my computer! It’s simple to use, however patience is required when it comes to the downloading stage! My computer is over a year old and this is the best thing I ever did to it! I reccomend this update!

Mavericks - What cowboy put this in then? (10.9.2)
08/03/2014 11:35:00 1/5 By P-Dubbya
Having updated my MacBook Pro to Mavericks, the thing has slowed down to a point that the G3s of yesteryear looked positively lively. It takes 30 seconds or so to change between some windows with most of the CPU power seeming to go into driving the spinning beach ball. I would have preferred to do a clean install but Apple have not only done away with OS discs but also made the process as difficult as possible using the downloaded version. If I could bill Apple for the time I’ve wasted trying to sort out this issue I would have been able to buy a new laptop with a clean install already in place. I’m seriously thinking of trashing the lot and going back to Mountain Lion, which at least worked, though the pinnacle of operating stability was still Snow Leopard. The whole Apple ethos used to be built on ease of use but over the past couple of years they have let us down badly with both hardware and software errors that should never have made it to market without further testing and refinement. I may come back and do a new rating for the clean install, if I ever get it to work, but as for doing an upgrade from an existing OS, forget it — one star is supremely generous.

Not the update for me. (10.9.2)
08/03/2014 11:32:00 1/5 By jonnyboy 231
I updated from Snow Leopard and it was the absolute worst thing I could have done, such a big mistake, small things that are problems for example all the gestures have changed, and they are no long easy and natural to do, Text Edit now doesn’t just open, you have to mess around opening new documents and whatnot. A few of my old applications are no longer supported which is a problem. I now have to pay out money I don’t have to correct my mistake and get Snow Leopard back again.

Easy as pie (10.9.2)
08/03/2014 09:55:00 5/5 By Stupidget
I was contemplating upgrading to Mavericks, but, was slightly concered about some of the reviews I read. After doing a FULL time machine backup and then running Disk Diagnostics on my main HD I decided to upgrade. It took about 30mins to download Mavericks and the entire upgrade took about 1.5 hours to complete. Every main prgramme that I use, Photoshop CS5, Chrome and attached scanners, USB drives and printers all work perfectly and I’m very happy with the upgrade.

Please Stop Pushing This failed OS! (10.9.1)
06/03/2014 22:03:00 1/5 By Jamey47
You folks have a problem. This software is so buggy that an exterminator should be called in to put a stop to it. I tried installing it twice over Lion and went through two weeks of Mac Hell trying to undo the damage. The damage is still ongoing for my other Mac. Now Apple keeps pushing this software off on my Notifications and almost demanding that it be installed again. To many bad reviews are out there about this software and APPLE needs to wake up and smell the rotten apple that they have created. Wish it was worth doing but it is just not.

rating (10.9.1)

With so many concerns why is the rating so misleadingly high?

OSX Mavericks (10.9.1)
05/03/2014 18:10:00 5/5 By simnew
Great update for me. Updated 6 Mac’s to Mavericks without problem including a 7 year old iMac. No performance impact as far as I can see. A few nice improvements - mainly in some of the apps and in Finder, but overall compared to other OS upgrades I have done , this is a piece of cake. Of course there are some real moaners on here….. some of them sound like children but as an experienced IT specialist, I was amazed how smooth the upgrade was. Don’t hesitate - but of course, always make sure you have at least backed up your files just in case something does go wrong. It didn’t on the six occasions that I have installed it, but you should always take certain precautions and with Time machine and a passport Hard disk costing next to nothing these days, there are almost no reasons not to take a backup.

rubbish upgrade (10.9.1)
05/03/2014 11:37:00 1/5 By ray835
