Apple is going to make the Apple Mac users happy by releasing the upcoming OS X 10.9 soon.
Mac users, most of the times, think that Apple favors the iPhone and iPad users as it always give them new and exciting features whenever a new iOS is launched.
However, if the latest report from 9to5Mac is something to go by, Apple is going to give its next Mac operating system a big facelift with several iOS-like features.
The website reports that the OS X 10.9 will be much different from the earlier operating systems viz. OS X Leopard and OS X Lion. The new OS will improve many options for the 'power user' and many of the important features will be taken directly from Apple's mobile operating system, iOS.
The report also suggests that browsing is going to be easier with OS X 10.9 as the newly updated Safari is also going to tag along with it. The web browser is said to be coming with redesigned backend for improved page loading, speed, and efficiency.
The Finder application that allows users to find files and folders in the system will also get a big facelift. The application will get tabbed browsing and tags. The applications on OS X 10.9 will work in full screen when put in multi-screen setup and the second monitor will show the desktop.
There are also reports that the OS X 10.9 will also have integrated Siri functions, but so far it is not known whether it will be partial or complete integration.
It is not like Apple is going to introduce iOS-based applications and functions in a Mac OS for the first time. The OS X Mountain Lion also had many applications that were first introduced in iOS and later were integrated into the OS X Mountain Lion.
Apple is expected to launch the new operating system during the recently announced Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Apple's mobile operating system iOS 7 as well as next generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone 5S, are also expected to show up at the five-day event.
