Mavericks gets some great iOS Features:
Google maps is a mainstay of a lot of searches, but having an integrated map feature in OSX has certain benefits, especially if a you use several Apple devices. For example, it allows you to create turn-by-turn trip directions and transfer these from a Mac to an iPhone where audio prompts can guide our way once you're on the road.
Here is a view of the main OWC campus:
OS X Mavericks now offers the option to install updates when they are ready. The default setting is off, but you will be asked if you want to turn it on the first time software updates are installed. "Software Update" in System Preferences has been replaced with "App Store". The default settings for App Store are:
The default settings for App Store are:
- Automatically check for updates
- Download and newly available updates in the background
- Install system data files and security updates
The first time you allow the Mac to install updates it will ask if you want to enable automatic updates.
An iBook is Apple's name for ebooks. These are generally EPUB files that are static text and pictures. There are multimedia capabilities, however, including user interactions and reading to the user through VoiceOver. Prior to OS X Mavericks iBooks were limited to iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads, or iPod Touches. OS X now includes an official iBooks application that has the same functionality as iBooks on iOS including:
- iBooks Store where you can purchase new iBooks.
- iCloud syncing between all devices using the same Apple ID account.
- Editing such as adding notes, highlighting, adding a bookmark, and even where you left off reading will sync with iCloud.
The Calendar app now has a sleek, flattened design.
Notification Center was first available in iOS 5 and made its move to the desktop in OS X Mountain Lion. Notification Center provides quick and easy access to your email, meetings and more. It uses banners (just information) and alerts (information with available user interaction) to let the user know of new items.
OS X Mavericks improves brings new features to the Notification Center:
- Updates from websites
- Web developers use push notifications in Safari to keep you up-to-date on website changes even when Safari isn't running. Example uses of this could be winning an auction, a recent package shipment, or a product update.
- More interactive notifications
- You can quickly respond to a message, FaceTime call, or a message without interrupting your workflow.
- A quick view of all of the notifications that occurred while you were away from the computer is displayed at the log-in screen. This is a simple way to see what you've missed.
The options for "Later" are:
- Try in an Hour
- Try Tonight
- Remind Me Tomorrow
