Apple recently released OS X 10.9.3 to the public and has now seeded 10.9.4 beta to developers, which is great timing seeing as though WWDC 2014 will be in less than a week’s time. The reason why we mention this is because on June 2nd, Apple will seed OS X 10.10 beta to developers.
If all goes to plan that will mean that the OS X 10.9.4 public release will be in tandem with Mac OS X 10.10 beta. There is no word yet on what changes this new beta version brings, then again we don’t know much about the upcoming 10.10 either.
Having said that, we do know that Apple will make more of a big deal out of Mac OS X 10.10 features rather than iOS 8, as Jony Ive has had to do the complete opposite of last year and borrow some of the iOS team in order to get the latest version of OS X ready for next week.
We are sure that devs are not too bothered about today’s OS X 10.9.4 beta seed, as they have 10.10 in mind, as they wait in anticipation as to what new features they are likely to see. We do have a few ideas, but this is based on assumptions, although some of the ideas could be spot on.
Having said that, we don’t expect the public release of OS X 10.10 until later this year,maybe October, and so there will still be continued support for Mavericks, although we only expect one more update after 10.9.4 to 10.9.5.
