Mac OS X Mavericks compatibility and system requirements

Apple had a busy day yesterday, and while many of you will say it was a positive outcome, Apple haters will have a different opinion. Okay, so we know that without Steve Jobs their keynotes are dull and boring, and also the fact that some of you will be disappointed with the lack of decent new products, but WWDC is always about what is to come, and not what will be released on the day.

Having said that, Apple has seen fit to update their AirPort Extreme and more importantly, the MacBook Air, which now comes with the much-improved Haswell processor, but decided to leave the MacBook Pro out. The new model will be much faster and have an improved battery life, but further improvements will come once Mac OS X Mavericks is released later this year.

We’re told that this is the most powerful version of Mac OS X yet, and we have no reason to disagree with them, but we do hope they make some much-needed improvements. Apple only showed us some of the main new features, but they tell us there will be over 200 changes with Mavericks when compared to Mountain Lion.

Mac OS X Mavericks compatibility — Apple did not tell us at the time what Mac devices would have support for the upcoming desktop operating system, but thanks to AppleInsider we have the full list of compatible devices below. However, as a rule of thumb, if your Mac is able to run Mountain Lion, then it will be able to run Mavericks.

Mac OS X Mavericks system requirements — Generally your system will need to be 64-bit and be running Mac OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard or higher. You will also need at least 8GB of free disk space in order to install Mavericks on your Mac device.

When will OS X Mavericks be released? As yet Apple has not set out a date, which is strange because they normally do during a WWDC event. However, they did say it will be sometime in the fall, which is later compared to previous years, although we do know some of the team had to be pulled off in order to work on iOS 7, so could have delayed Mavericks progress.

Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks price — The price of Mountain Lion is $19.99 in the US, so we have no reason to believe why Mavericks would cost any more.

Are you impressed with what you have seen so far?
