“OS X Mavericks powered half of all Macs that went online in March, the largest percentage of any individual version of Apple’s operating system since 2009’s Snow Leopard, statistics showed,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.
“Mavericks, which carries the numerical designation of OS X 10.9, accounted for 49.5% of all Mac operating systems tracked by Web analytics company Net Applications last month,” Keizer reports. “The six-month-old operating system gained about 4 percentage points in March, slightly more than the month before.”
“Apple has not disclosed what it will name the next version, OS X 10.10, or when it will release the upgrade, but is expected to reveal the former at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which will run June 2-6 in San Francisco,” Keizer reports. “If the company repeats last year’s process, it will unveil OS X 10.10 at WWDC on June 2 and make a preview available to registered developers that same day. Although Apple could surprise customers — and developers — with an early launch of the upgrade, for the last three versions Apple has waited an average of 148 days between announcement and official release. Using that average and a June 2 announcement, OS X 10.10 would launch on Oct. 28.”
