Websites begin pushing Safari notifications pre-Mavericks

updated 09:30 am EDT, Tue October 22, 2013

Hints at imminent Mavericks release

Some prominent websites are already beginning to push Safari notifications, even though the feature requires OS X Mavericks, reports note. These include sites like NBA.com and the New York Times. The option allows Mavericks users to receive alerts from websites even when Safari is closed; at the moment, the only way to see notifications is with the Mavericks GM available to developers.

Apple is expected to announce a final release date for Mavericks -- likely due the end of the month -- at today's press event in San Francisco. The premature activation of Safari notifications could be part of a planned demonstration, but Apple has already thoroughly demonstrated Mavericks, and may want to spend more of today's presentation on new Macs and iPads. MacNN will be covering the event live.
