My job as an Apple consultant is to make sure you and your business are running at its best. Business continuity is so important in this day that making one small mistake can massive issues.
This is why I’m advising my clients to not upgrade to Apples newest operating system.
On October 22nd Apple released OS X 10.9. They rocked the world when they announced that it would be free, causing a frenzy in the business world. OS X 10.9, codename Mavericks, comes with massive updates but at the same time can cause a horrible effect on your work.
For starters, not all applications that worked in 10.8 (Mountain Lion) work in 10.9. Are your programs compatible? If it’s an older program (let’s say Microsoft office 2004) there’s a good chance it won’t work. Find out from the manufacturer if it’s 10.9 compatible.
Other than compatibility, 10.9 has already been proven to have other issues. Issues like Mail.app having issues with Gmail, or Safari being slower than normal have caused users to be angry. Many postings on Apples support forums have come up over the last two weeks.
According to 9to5mac, Apple has already started testing 10.9.1 which will fix many of the issues discussed. Once this update comes out, then I can suggest updating.
Having issues with Mavericks – comment below and let’s see how we can help you.
