Apple confirms the core technologies within the next version of its OSX desktop operating system as well as the existing computers on which it will work.


Although much of the focus of Apple's World Wide Developers Conference has been on the updates coming to the iPhone and iPad through the next generation of the company's mobile device operating system, Apple also wowed the crowds with the latest version of its desktop operating system, OSX Mavericks, the first release in 10 years not to be named after a big cat.

Some of the new features, such as native compatibility with multiple monitors, and integrated maps and notification apps that share alerts and info automatically with other Apple devices were extremely impressive, as was its ability to minimize processor strain and power drain -- crucial when running on a notebook or ultrabook and without a power socket nearby.

However, in order to upgrade to Mavericks when it is officially launched this autumn, a computer will need to already be running OSX 10.6.7 (Snow Leopard) or later, and have a minimum of 8GB of free disk space available for the install.

Apple has also published a very detailed PDF file on its site offering a complete breakdown of the core technologies that will feature in OSX Mavericks.
