Apple Inc. (AAPL) To Add More Power-User Features In OS X 10.9 [REPORT]

Apple Inc. (AAPL) To Add More Power-User Features In OS X 10.9 [REPORT]

Perhaps owing to the massive backlash Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) received when it released Windows 8, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will not be unveiling a new operating system that they’ve build from the ground up, but rather is expected to release a version built on incremental changes to Mountain Lion. Internally in Cupertino the OS is known as “Cabernet” and will in all likelihood be previewed to the public at the Worldwide Developer’s Conference coming in June.

Most of this reporting is simple rumor, but Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac has a proven track record of providing the goods and the skinny from the normally tight-lipped development teams in Cupertino.  Comments made by CEO Tim Cook during Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s most recent earnings call seem to back up Mr. Gurman’s suggestion that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will focus on software at the WWDC this June.

DG Value Adds 23.7% In 2020, Plans New SPAC Fund

Dov Gertzulin's DG Value Funds returned approximately 19.2% in the quarter ending December 31, 2020, according to a copy of the hedge fund's full-year 2020 letter to investors, a copy of which ValueWalk has been able to review. Following the fourth-quarter performance, DG's flagship value strategy ended 2020 with a positive return of 23.7%. That Read More

My guess is that they will find some type of big cat to replace the “Cabernet” label before the newest release is shown in June. Additionally, the new OS will feature a number of expected though still rumored changes:

  • Enhancements to Finder to bring it in line with third-party tools that add things like tabbed browsing and tags for content organization.
  • The new version of the file explorer is said to have tabs, allowing users to switch between multiple folders without opening multiple Finder windows.
  • A new version of Safari with a focus on speed and efficiency. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has long been lagging behind Firefox as Mac users’ preferred browser.
  • App switching and pausing tricks incorporated from iOS, which would make for CPU and battery life usage improvements, especially for “casual” users who don’t need multiple apps running fully at the same time.
  • Improved multi-monitor use, which will allow users to run full-screen apps on one monitor and access different desktop spaces or other full-screen apps alongside those. This has long been a desired feature of true power users.
  • A number of under-the-hood changes to core apps to make them use resources more efficiently.

All in all, it’s expected that the new operating system will make users happy without forcing them to learn an entirely new operating  system, something that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) would have been wise to do with Windows 8.
