If you are using a Mac and have been waiting patiently for Apple to officially launch OS X 10.9, it looks like you will have to wait a few more weeks. A new report from 9to5Mac claims, via unnamed sources, that OS X 10.9, also known by its code name Mavericks, won't be ready for its launch until sometime in late October.
Apple released the current version of OS X, Mountain Lion, in July 2012, so launching the next version of the Mac operating system in late October represents a delay in Apple's usual strategy. However, 9to5Mac claims that the reason for the Mavericks hold up is so that Apple can put all of its efforts in releasing iOS 7 later this month at the same time the company launches new iPhone products.
Apple first announced Mavericks in June as part of their WWDC event and is supposed to have a number of new features and improvements, including adding new native iBooks and Map apps, a way to store passwords called iCloud Keychain, better support for multiple monitors and more. Apple is also expected to release a number of new Mac models this fall alongside the Mavericks launch.
