Apple has postponed the release of OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 for iPad during the iPhone event on September 10. Now the operating systems are likely to come by the end of October.
Certainly it’s a bad news for those who are eagerly awaiting the release of OS X Mavericks (Version 10.9) than the new iPhones, as the OS X Mavericks wouldn’t come before the end of October and the same updates are coming to the iPad consumers, as new iOS 7 for iPad has been delayed too.
As per the rumors confirmed by 9to5Mac, it seems that Apple has delayed the release of OS X Mavericks to allow its engineers to focus on iOS 7 for iPhone as well as to respond timely to all the problems that may arise after the sale of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Similarly, iOS 7 for iPad doesn’t seem to be released until Apple unveils the new models of tablet to the public.
9to5Mac points out that Apple usually releases the version of OS X as a result of keynote on fiscal results and the next won’t happen before the end of October, so it will be very unlikely to see Mavericks on the Mac App Store from September 10. In addition, the delayed release would be consistent with the announcement of new MacBook, which is also waiting for the same period – and the arrival of the updated iPad, possibly during a special keynote in late October.
However, the system requirements of the iBooks application quote the words “iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 or later”, which signs the imminent launch of OS X Mavericks. Last year, the arrival of updated OS X was followed after 3 days of the modification in system requirements of its iBooks application. If the Cupertino were to follow the same logic, then OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 would be ready to download globally very soon. Till then, we are waiting for next Tuesday to discover finally — what the plans of Apple are.
