MacMost Now 877: Looking Forward To Mavericks

Here is what we know about Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks so far. We'll get new iBooks and Maps apps, and changes to Safari and Calendar. There will be better multiple screen support. The Finder will include tabs and tags. We can expect Mavericks in the fall, most likely through the Mac App Store.

    Think the reason you can’t store the 3 digit security code is more to do with the credit card industry protocols than anything to do with Apple. At least in the UK it works like that from what I’ve been told. That is, even encrypted the credit card number and 3 digit security code can not be stored together

      But all third-party password apps do that now. 1Password, LastPass, etc. I think the protocols you refer to have to do with merchant web sites storing information, not personal apps or services.

        True, but 1Password, LastPass, etc. do not have to worry about PCI DSS compliance. As a credit card merchant, Apple does.

          But do those rules really cross over between services? iCloud Keychain and iTunes stores are separate services. I’d imagine that they have separate rules. Right now I can put my CC pin number in a Pages document and store that in iCloud — how is that different than storing it in iCloud Keychain? It shouldn’t be. If Agile has an online store where they sell 1Password, then how is that different than Apple having a store where they sell products and also an iCloud Keychain service?

    Gary,
    I think you do a terrific job of what, how, and why on Apple changes.

    I think they will release iBooks and Maps Mac Apps in BETA before Mavericks so we can test it out and they can see how iCloud holds up. I am really looking forward to iCloud KeyChain, but I don’t see how that can be an early release since it works closely with Safari and the new iOS 7 app. I am hoping in can replace iWallet that I use now which does not auto-synch. What shortcomings are you expecting from the new KeyChain apps?

      6 years ago

      Hard to guess until we can see and use iCloud Keychain. It will probably not be as feature-rich as 1Password, but will have the ability to enter passwords into Safari in iOS, which 1Password can’t do. But that is just a guess.

    Hi Gary,

    Great overview of Mavericks!

    I’m curious if the eventual release of Mavericks will create problems with currently Mountain Lion compatible software. For example, do you anticipate a lag in the development of Mavericks-compatible versions of current software?

      6 years ago

      I doubt it. I don’t see any reason why current software that works with Mountain Lion won’t run fine in Mavericks.

        Philip

        Is that because there isn’t a radical leap from Mountain Lion to Mavericks? I encountered past software compatibility problems from Snow Leopard to Lion / Mountain Lion.

          6 years ago

          Not necessarily. You can have a radical leap and still be backward compatible. You can also have a tiny change and not be backward compatible.
          What sort of compatibility issue did you have before — which software exactly? What did the developer of the software have to say about the problem you experienced?
