Earlier this year at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2013, Apple unveiled OS X 10.9 Mavericks, its latest platform update for Mac. With this update, the company moves away from its tradition of naming the releases after cats, such as Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion and the likes. There are also a number of new features in this update, which is yet to be released to the public. Rumor has it that after seeding OS X 10.9 Mavericks GM build last week, work on OS X 10.10 has already begun at One Infinite Loop.
No fancy name has been attached as yet to OS X 10.10, which is likely to be unveiled next year. It will be the next major software update from Apple for Mac. It is said that OS X 10.10 will continue with the trend of bringing design elements from iCloud and iOS to the desktop. Apple is expected to stick to its tradition of making software related announcements at WWDC, so its highly likely that OS X 10.10 will be unveiled alongside iOS 8 at WWDC 2014. As far as OS X 10.9 is concerned, the company is yet to provide a concrete release date, though it is expected that Mavericks will drop towards the end of this month. Mac users have been anxiously waiting for this update, which brings more than 200 new features for compatible Mac machines.
