AppleCare Staff have reportedly begun their training ahead of the launch of Mac OS X Mavericks.
According to 9to5 Mac:
These sources say that training has begun today, and support staff will be required to learn about the operating system’s new features, installation process, and troubleshooting options for at least six hours over the course of the next few weeks. The training is said to be similar in secrecy and style to the iOS 7 and iTunes Radio training, and it has yet to begin for all AppleCare employees. AppleCare advisors will learn the OS X Mavericks materials in small groups in order to prevent information about the training process from becoming public knowledge.
With Apple claiming that Mavericks will be available “this fall”, it’s likely that the software will be released in late October. The software has already been available to developers since WWDC in June, and has received 8 major updates since then. The new software includes proper support for multiple displays, enhancements to Finder, iCloud Keychain, Maps for desktop, and a total redesign moving away from skeumorphism.
AppleCare training, whilst only in its initial stages, definitely shows that the Mavericks release is not far away now, those of you running a Mac who haven’t yet had access to it, only have a few more weeks left to wait!
