It's been four months since the release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the latest version of Apple's Mac operating system. It is the first time that a version of OS X has been made available, to Mac owners, free of charge and it has been estimated that one-third of Macs had been updated to Mavericks within weeks of it being launched in late October 2013. That figure is, no doubt, much higher now.
Following on from our Mastering Mountain Lion series, relating is OS X 10.8, the Mac Computer Skills authors have written a number of Mavericks tutorials to help familiarise you with some of the changes.
In this series, we tell you what you really need to know to make the most of this new operating system. We answer your biggest questions, show off the best features and even guide you through those little but important things that you’re likely to miss.
