Apple announced on Tuesday morning, during the big annual event in San Francisco, that it is releasing its new operating system Mavericks OS X and that the upgrade, available for download  from the online Mac App Store, will be offered without a fee.

Mavericks OS X was first unveiled in June this year during the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. This latest Apple's operating system update comes with a number of new characteristics, such as the file tagging ability, ability to see what links friends share, using the Safari browser, and the ability to respond to received messages in notifications. In addition, Mavericks OS X also has new iBooks and Maps apps.

In addition, according to Craig Federighi, Apple senior vice president of software engineering,  Mavericks OS X will also extend devices’ battery life and improve computing speed.

You will be able to use Mavericks OS X on a number of Mac computers, even such old machines you bought in 2007.
