OS X Mavericks To Be Priced Between $50-100

OS X Mavericks To Be Priced Between $50-100

It was announced in June this year at the WWDC, but Apple didn’t reveal any further detail of its upcoming OS X Mavericks such as its date of release and the price.

The OS X Mavericks is OS X 10.9 and the upgrade has added iBooks, Apple Maps and several more apart from revamping the Finder with tabs and to offer better battery life.

GottaBeMobile writes, “Apple won’t charge for the iOS 7 update arriving on the iPhone and iPad this fall, but it will very likely charge users for the OS X Mavericks upgrade which will arrive in the Mac App Store at some point this year.”

OS X Mavericks To Be Priced Between $50-100

About the pricing part it is learned the upgrade will cost around $50 or $100, which is a good jump from the recent OS X upgrade costs.

Apple started charging for an upgrade in 2009 with OS X Snow Leopard. Earlier it charged just $29.99 for a single license, cheaper than that of the OS X upgrade and also Windows 7 upgrade of Microsoft, which costs $119.

In 2011 the company charged $29.99 for an upgrade to OS X Lion. The next year the update for OS X Snow Leopard was priced tagged just $20.

GottaBeMobile writes further, “Apple will likely set an OS X Mavericks price of $20 to $30 on the Mac App Store. The OS X Mavericks software will be free on all Macs purchased after the release and Apple typically offers a 30 day grace period to users who buy a Mac before the new version of OS X is released.”

    It would honestly be crazy of Apple to charge more than $20 for OS X 10.9. This is definitely going to be the iOS 6 of OS X. The improvements revolve around Maps, slight redesigns (the removal of linen just like the banners in iOS 6), and battery improvements. But just like iOS 6, 10.9 will be followed by an OS 11, the iOS 7 Macs. Let’s see how things play out.

        You know I would be surprised since Apple announced iOS 4.2.10.

          Well the dot is a separator not a decimal. Its like Linux went from 3.9 to 3.10 to 3.11
