Apple on Monday announced a new version of its Mac operating system at its World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco. The newest version of Max OS X is called “Mavericks” and has three primary new features Mac users.
Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi showed off the biggest features of Mac OS X Mavericks: Finder Tabs, Tagging and Multiple Displays.
- Finder Tabs: In Mac OS X, the finder is the primary point of contact for accessing apps and documents in the operating system. Finder Tabs brings a browser-like tab interface to Mac computers.
- Tagging: Mac users can now “tag” documents, pictures or videos saved to their computers by topic. For instance, if you are saving pictures of your family, you can tag the pictures as “family.” Tags should make it much easier for users to search for documents and other content through the finder.
- Multiple Displays: Mac OS X has always worked with multiple screens. Apple has just made it easier to organize your desktop across multiple displays by allow users to draw content from one screen to another without disrupting the content that is on the desktop

New features in Mac OS X Mavericks
Mavericks is the first of Apple’s Mac OS X versions to not be named after a “big cat” (such as a Mountain Lion or Leopard) that was championed by Steve Jobs. (The company joked that the last possibility was Sea Lion.) The new naming convention for Mac OS going forward will be based on "inspiring" locations in California. OS X Mavericks is due to be widely available this Fall.
