    Top New Features in Mac OS X Mavericks

    by Esther P., Pad & Quill Techster
    With iOS 7 getting most of the attention after Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference this year, there hasn't been as much fanfare about the new OS X Mavericks launching in the fall. But for Mac fans around the world, OS X will be a big deal, featuring more than 200 new updates. Here are a few of the ones we're looking forward to the most.


    For all the book lovers and students out there, this one's for you. iBooks is now available in OS X Mavericks, with books that you've downloaded on other iOS devices automatically available on your Mac. You can easily switch between multiple open books, navigate books just like you would on any other iOS device, and share notes, highlights, and bookmarks with iCloud.


    Searching for directions and local businesses just got easier with the new Maps app on OS X Mavericks. The graphics are gorgeous, Yelp reviews are built in, and you can send directions to your iPhone for voice navigation. Maps are built in to the Mail, Contacts, and Calendar apps for easy integration. Any address pops up on a map for real-time traffic, step-by-step directions, and alternate routes.

    Multi-Display Support

    If you're an Apple fanatic, the new multi-display support available in OS X Mavericks is just for you. Working across multiple screens and devices just got easier with the option for multiple app windows on either display, Mission Control for getting a broader view of open apps, and the ability to drag an app across the room to your HDTV with AirPlay and Apple TV.

    Finder Tabs

    Trouble staying organized? Finder Tabs and Tags can help with that. Finder Tabs combines multiple Finder windows into one, so you can have a tab for All Documents, one for Photos, and one for Homework all in one window. Easily switch between tabs

    MacBook Air Protection

    Laptops come in handy, especially when you're a student or a freelancer. Being able to use your MacBook in the coffee shop, the airport, your car, or anywhere you need to get some work done while you wait is one of the best perks of owning a laptop. On the flip side, taking your MacBook with you everywhere you go makes it that much more likely that you'll ding, drop, smudge, or spill coffee on your laptop. With a little MacBook Air protection, however, you'll be ready for accidents before they happen.

    MacBook Air Cases

    Let's start with the most practical way to protect your laptop: a MacBook Air case. No matter how careful you are, accidents happen. Your friend sets a coffee mug on your MacBook and leaves a coffee ring. Your cat walks over the laptop cover and leaves scratches on the finish. Or you throw the laptop in your bag along with your car keys, never thinking about how they'll scratch your MacBook.
    A book-style MacBook Air case provides more than scratch and damage protection. It's like a secret camouflage that makes your MacBook look just like a book—not an expensive electronic device.


    When it comes to damage from spilled drinks or leaving your MacBook on top of the car and then driving away, there's not much a MacBook Air case can do for you. In that case, it pays to have AppleCare or a third-party protection plan. Along with coverage for the hardware, you'll also receive technical support and software support.

    Backup Protection

    MacBook Air protection involves more than just physical damage. Viruses, hard drive crashes, and software corruption can be just as devastating as cracking your laptop case—or
