It has been widely believed that Apple’s latest operating system, OS X Mavericks, would see a release sometime later this month, although specific release dates have yet to be given, but it looks like those rumors could come true as the ninth beta of Mavericks has since been released to those participating in the program. Interestingly enough the latest release has dropped the “Developer Preview” from its name, suggesting that work on the software could be drawing to a close and possibly meeting its rumored October release.
The latest build is 13A598 which is close to the previous release, 13A584, indicating that there has not been major changes made to the operating system, apart from some minor tweaks which we guess is to be expected. Once again this points to the fact that it is possible that the beta could be in its final stages and it shouldn’t be too long before a Golden Master build of the operating system is announced. We’ll definitely keep our eyes peeled but until we hear from Apple officially, try not to get your hopes up just yet.
