Besides iOS 7, Apple has also announced a brand new version for Mac OS X operating system. The new Mac OS X operating system is named as Mac OS X Mavericks.

The new version of Mac OS X is focuses on extended battery life and UI responsiveness. The OpenGL 4 is to optimize graphic drawing, but also other tricks like compressed memory and more. Apple promises that that with this optimizations, the CPU usage will be lower up to 72%.

Mac OS X Mavericks also features energy saving called as App Nap, if an app window is completely overlaid by another window (so you can’t see what’s happening), the app will “nap” so it doesn’t waste resources unnecessarily. We believed this is also one of the reason that the CPU usage will be lower.

Mac OS X Mavericks also brings support for multiple displays. One way to add a new display is to use your Apple TV that’s hooked up to your HDTV as a second display. Or you could just plug displays the regular way.

Another new feature is tags, which help you organize files – each file can have multiple tags and you can see the list of files with a tag update in real time.
