Apple with the first beta build of OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks download released to registered developers, introduced its expanding support for 4K display. But with this new release, the Cupertino company seems to be planning bigger than expected.
According to the report from 9to5Mac, the latest developer release of OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 beta 1 may be a part of a bigger and wider installment of the release and Apple-branded 4K display as though. Pulling some internal resources and rushing out a public release of OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 download to fix the infamous “goto fail” security flaw, with that in mind, Apple has made yet another Mavericks related launch.
Finally, we here got to confirm that this new OS X 10.9.3 beta (dev seed) with build number 13D12 download is now available on the Mac Dev Program and App Store for registered UDID developers.
Released with support for Retina 4K displays, OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 beta can be downloaded alternatively for the Mac App Store or ran directly through Apple’s Member Center website.
“As is always the case with Apple’s beta builds of iOS or Mac OS X, the software is only officially available to those who are part of the paid Mac Dev Program.”
While the release notes are sparse as usual, but the OS X team is specifically asking users to install the software to focus their attention on graphics drivers and audio aspects of the system. Apple didn’t included in the official release notes, though, its also seems that the company has integrated additional support for users with MacBooks ad 4K display.
“The newly added support for 4K monitors means that users can now allow Mac OS X to run natively on Retina-’grade’ resolution for sharper content and an overall improved visual experience.
As explained by 9to5Mac:
Running OS X pixel-doubled on a 4K display means content is much sharper than before. It is the same as running a Retina MacBook Pro at standard Retina resolution or as using a Retina iPhone or iPad. The screen pushes double the resolution in the same amount of space in order to provide the user with sharper graphics.”
Remind you of additional support for 4K displays, not only comes a great news for current users of the hardware, also potentially provides a little insight into Apple’s upcoming direction, to introduce higher-resolution displays in the future hardware and software as well.
Download links will only be available through your official dev account, Apple advising to stay clear of it and users are being warned that they will not be able to revert back to a previous installation of Mavericks, when installed 10.9.3 initial beta.
