    Maverick : I have iPhoto 11, but when I want to update it asks for a price of 14l€ somethinf, so it is not free.

      Yes, I tried Pages….. There’s still a charge. Will it be coming off or DO we have to pay?

        You get it free with a new Mac, or a free upgrade if you purchased it before.

    I thought last wwdc Maverick would be integrated with IOS, like AirDrop. I cannot get this to work between my MacPro & IPad

      AirDrop is iOS to iOS or Mac to Mac, but not iOS to Mac. Two different concepts when it comes to file management. Apple has never said anything about ever having iOS to Mac AirDrop.

    Gary, I have been waiting a long time for an iMac with the Retina display. However, I am now learning that the Retina display is NOT a minor step for the iMac, because the Retina requires very expensive screen technology and very complex “screen drivers.” Consequently, at present, a Retina display would add about $400 bucks to the price of the small iMac and about $900 to the price of a large iMac. In other words, Apple figures the market for a Retina iMac would be very small at present.

    I have mountain lion installed on my iMac so thought i would start to download mavericks for free after a few moments i thought about my purchased software and would it still work (Compatible) so i thought best to stop the download and cancel it for a while but i can only pause it,is there any way i can cancel the download till i have checked things out. I found out about the free update via automatic updates
    Thanks for the great informative videos Gary

      Pausing is all you need to do. Nothing will happen again until you start. Should only take you a short time to confirm that your software works. I haven’t heard of any major issues from major vendors.

          I always recommend that everyone use the latest versions of all software and operating systems.

    I updated to OS X Maverick and now there seems to be no email sync between my IMac desktop and any other devices, e.g. IPad, IPhone. I use Google mail. If I am checking mail on my IPad or IPhone and I delete the email, it does not delete on the IMac. With Snow Leopard this was not an issue. How do I get these devices to work together when it comes to email?

      There have been widely reported issues with using Google’s mail system and the Mail app in Mavericks. But most of it is due to it being “fixed” — Mac users had to set things up in special ways to get Gmail to work well before. Now those settings are not needed. Search for “mavericks gmail” and you’ll come up with tons of talk and things you can change.

    “Pages’ is still listed at $19.99 with a 2-star rating. I didn’t have it before Mav. Does that mean I would have to pay or is Apple still cleaning house vis-a–vis iLife, iWork?

      6 years ago

      It is free when you get a new Mac, or if you are upgrading the apps.

    Apparently iWork is free with new Macs and iOS7.
    Lots of scrolling issues reported (my experience too) w Mavericks
