OS X Mavericks

 

OS X Mavericks

Apple OS X Mavericks begins a new chapter in the iBooks story. Now the books you've already downloaded on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch will automatically appear in iBooks on your Mac. And there are over 1.8 million more in the iBooks Store, ready for you to download with just a few clicks. Reading books is every bit as intuitive as it is on an iOS device - turn pages with a swipe, zoom in on images with a pinch, or scroll from cover to cover. If you're a student hitting the books, keep as many open as you like and search through them with ease. When you quote an excerpt while writing a paper, iBooks adds a citation for you. And when you take notes, highlight passages, or add a bookmark on your Mac, iCloud pushes them to all your devices automatically. That way you have them on whichever one you take to class. iCloud even remembers which page you're on. So if you start reading on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you can pick up right where you left off on your Mac.

Apple OS X Mavericks Maps app

Now you've got the whole world on your desktop. The OS X Mavericks Maps app lets you use every pixel of your display to explore new destinations, and it takes full advantage of the graphics power of your Mac. So zooming is incredibly smooth and responsive. Text and details are crisp and easy to read. And you get gorgeous views such as Flyover, a photo-realistic, interactive 3D experience that lets you soar high above select cities. Maps makes it simple to get information on local points of interest like restaurants and hotels, showing you phone numbers, photos, and even Yelp reviews. It's also easy to get there on time, thanks to point-to-point directions, real-time traffic conditions, and suggested alternate routes. When you're ready to go, send your map to your iPhone for voice navigation on the way. With Apple OS X Mavericks, maps are built into Mail, Contacts, and Calendar, too. So wherever you see an address, you can see it on a map, just like that.

 

OS X Mavericks Safari

 

OS X Mavericks Safari

Safari in Apple OS X Mavericks delivers blazing performance and introduces breakthrough technologies. Innovative new features make it simple to return to sites you visit often - and discover new sites as well. Shared Links in the new Sidebar shows links posted by people you follow on Twitter and LinkedIn, so you can keep up with interesting new content. And with the redesigned Top Sites, it's easy to organize your favorites. There are also unique advancements under the hood. Thanks to the new Nitro Tiered JIT and Fast Start technologies in Safari, the web pages you visit feel snappier and more responsive. Browsing the web can take a toll on battery life, but with new power-saving technologies, you won't waste energy on web pages in the background or plug-in content you don't want to see. In Apple OS X Mavericks, Safari is simply the best way to surf.
