Apple Seeds OS X 10.9.1 Mavericks Beta to Developers
Apple on Friday seeded the first OS X 10.9.1 Mavericks beta to developers. As noted by the guys from Cupertino, this is a maintenance and security update that aims at improving Mail, Graphics, and VoiceOver features of the operating system for Macs.
The new Mavericks beta is marked as "build 13B27" and it is intended only for testing purposes. As to the date of public release, it is unknown, but hopefully Apple will make the new OS X available for all users in the coming weeks.
OS X 10.9 Mavericks was officially released in October. Those who use OS X Snow Leopard or above can upgrade to Mavericks through the Mac App Store. Moreover, this version of the Apple’s operating system for desktops is available for free.
Mavericks, named after a Northern California surf spot, brings several new features to the OS X operating system, though Apple also paid considerable attention to enhancing performance and battery life with its latest major release. Stats published soon after the release of Mavericks found that public adoption was three times faster than that of Apple's $20 Mountain Lion upgrade from 2012.
To download and test the new Mavericks beta one should have an Apple Developer account.
