OS X 10.9 Mavericks

The first OS X release to break from the cat names and take its name from a location in California, Mavericks shipped in October 2013 for free.

This version of Mac OS X includes several improvements designed to extend battery life for notebook users, including App Nap, compressed memory and timer coalescing. Finder gained tabs, and iBooks as well as Maps made their first appearance as system apps.

While Aqua retained many components from Mountain Lion, much of the skeuomorphic design from previous releases were stripped from Maverick’s user interface.
