Apple starts training support staff for OS X Mavericks ahead of late October Launch


Apple had given us a preview of OS X Mavericks during the WWDC 2013 Keynote, and told us that it will released this fall.

As we reported earlier, the company is planning to release OS X Mavericks in October.

9to5Mac reports that Apple has started training its AppleCare staff to gear up for the launch.

These sources say that training has begun today, and support staff will be required to learn about the operating system’s new features, installation process, and troubleshooting options for at least six hours over the course of the next few weeks.

The training is said to be similar in secrecy and style to the iOS 7 and iTunes Radio training, and it has yet to begin for all AppleCare employees. AppleCare advisors will learn the OS X Mavericks materials in small groups in order to prevent information about the training process from becoming public knowledge.

OS X Mavericks includes major new features such as Finder tabs, document tags, better multiple display support, improvements to Safari, new Maps app, new iBooks app and lots more.

Apple has seeded eight developer previews of OS X Mavericks to developers so far. It released OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 8 couple of weeks back.

I can’t wait to install it on my MacBook Pro.
