It looks like Mac users will have to wait a little bit longer to experience OS X Mavericks. Apple’s new operating system for Macs isn’t expected to launch until the end of October, according to 9to5Mac. According to the report, Apple will not announce the release date of OS X Mavericks at next week's iPhone event. Instead, the launch will be announced at a separate event a few weeks later. They note:
For the launch of both OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion, Apple released the new operating systems the day following an earning results release. Apple traditionally shares its Q4 earnings numbers during the second half of October, so perhaps Apple will release Mavericks the day following its Q4 results announcement…This news suggests that Apple won't announce new Macs until October as well. These will probably include new iMacs, MacBook Pros, and the previously announced Mac Pro update. Apple first demoed OS X Mavericks in June. The new OS includes a number of enhancements. These include improved multiple-monitor support, the introduction of iBooks and Maps applications, new power-user features, and more. OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 7 arrived earlier this week.
