Updates to Mavericks' Safari, iBooks, Remote Desktop apps incoming

Joins previously-rumored Mail update

Apple is preparing updates to several core apps in OS X Mavericks, sources say. The people note that Apple is now seeding new versions of Safari, iBooks, and Remote Desktop to its workers, as well as a previously-rumored Mail update. The Safari code is identified as v7.0.1, and expected to provide a number of bugfixes. The same description applies to iBooks 1.0.1, and Remote Desktop 3.7.1.

The Mail update will allegedly be delivered as a separate "Mail Update for Mavericks 1.0" release, instead of as part of OS X 10.9.1, which would be standard procedure. This may be due to the fixes mentioned in its release notes, which specifically target problems with Gmail, including the use of custom Gmail settings.

When the new apps will be rolled out to the public is unknown, but Apple typically releases small-scale patches no later than a couple of weeks after they seed internally.

    With this new version of iBooks run on earlier OS X versions. Quite a few school-aged kids don't have the latest Macs.

    No - you need Mavericks to run iBooks. Guaranteed. Quite a few non-school aged adults don't have the latest Macs too.

    The "latest Macs" aren't required to run Mavericks. Just about any iMac or MacBook Pro from 2007 onward, MacBooks from 2008, and Mac minis from 2009 are capable of running Mavericks.

    That's anywhere from about a 5 to a 7 year old computer, depending on the model, ready for Mavericks. If your Mac is only slightly newer than the original, 1st-generation iPhone, then it's likely that Mavericks is good to go for you.
