AppleCare workers start training for OS X Mavericks

updated 10:09 am EDT, Wed October 2, 2013

Secrecy measures in place to prevent Mavericks info from leaking out

Apple has today begun training AppleCare workers on OS X Mavericks, according to sources. During the next few weeks, staff are expected to spend at least six hours learning about new features, the installation process, and troubleshooting options. Apple is reportedly maintaining the same sort of secrecy it applied to iOS 7 and iTunes Radio training, meaning AppleCare advisors will only learn about Mavericks in small groups in order to keep the training process from becoming public.

The timing of the training is believed to support rumors that Mavericks will ship later this month. Officially Apple has only stated that the OS is due sometime this fall, but the company is running out of time, particularly since it's anticipated that the company's final 2013 press event will take place in October. There Apple will likely announce new Macs and a final date for Mavericks, alongside new iPads.
