It’s been more than a year since Scott Forstall (American software engineer) was the senior vice president of iOS Software at Apple Inc. in 2012; he left Apple while Craig Federighi and Jony Ive were both put up as the new senior vice presidents of both the OS X and the iOS. This gave the Apple a new chance in creating a unified and single design to make Mac and iPad into one thing. This all seemed as a logical move at the time.
But that was not what really happened, in fact the new OS X Version 10.9 also known as the Maverick that is just a simple upgrade of the Mac operating system which Apple has been developing for the past many years. It although does come with a huge list of new features and a lot of tweaks but the feeling and the look remains the same.
So what are the pros and cons of the new Maverick you might ask yourself? Well here they are
- More advanced apps
- It can be upgraded free of cost
- There are a lot of additional new performance tweaks
- Most of the system changes are too small
- The options of notification require much more improvement
- Most of the apps require more than a simple change in their look

The best part of the Maverick is that you can download the whole operating system free of cost directly from the App Store and not like the MOUNTAIN LION which can cost up to $19.99. Within the App Store you can find Maverick as a free upgrade which you can easily do so on the Snow Leopard or any other newer version. And finally once the operating system has been downloaded which is about 5.29-GB it would not even take more than 30 minutes to update. The sad part of all this is that once you start running your new operation system you won’t feel that much change within it and it would simply feel as you are running your old OS, except of the new desktop wallpaper and the new aquamarine. Also you can use this Maverick OS for multi-monitor display.
It has been a lot of face-lifting on the apps within the Maverick such as the new Calendar app, which makes it much easier to sync, manage and share with Google calendars. Then a lot of improvements have also been carried out with the Notes and Contact option, as the Contacts option now look much more like an email client, while the Notes have changed its look from the simple yellow sheet to an off-white sheet which can easily be synchronized with your iPhone.
