Written by Andrew S. Ross (@arstechnica) on November 19, 2018 11:07:06The new version of OS X, 10.9, is available for download on the Mac App Store today, marking a dramatic shift for the operating system.
The OS X update is designed to improve the overall performance of the system, and it’s a huge change for the majority of users who use OS X every day.
Apple’s goal for OS X has always been to provide an easy-to-use and dependable desktop experience that’s easy to learn and use, and OS X 11 brings that to the desktop.
The new update comes alongside the OS X Mavericks update, which was released last month, as well as several security updates that have made their way to the Mac.
As expected, the biggest news in this latest release is that Apple’s been releasing a new version for the Mac that is designed for the new 10.10 release.
This is the first time that Apple has made such a drastic change to its operating system in such a major way.
This update is also the first release to support OS X Yosemite.
As we reported back in November, the OS 10.11 update was coming to OS X as well, but Apple had yet to release the new version.
It seems that Yosemite is the new one to roll out to users.
