    Apple is currently planning a late October launch for OS X Mavericks, according to a report from 9to5Mac.
    For its past two major OS X updates, Apple has released the new software the day after an earnings release, and the report notes that the company could follow a similar pattern with Mavericks. Apple will release its September quarter earnings in late October, aligning with the rumored Mavericks launch timeframe.

    Apple's other major operating system update, iOS 7, is set to arrive later this month alongside new iPhone hardware. The new iPhones are expected to be introduced at Apple's media event scheduled for next Tuesday, and based on Apple's previous patterns iOS 7 could launch to the public roughly a week later. The iPad version of iOS 7 may, however, be held back slightly and launched aside new iPad hardware within the next several months.

    Update: AllThingsD has confirmed that Mavericks will be released in late October.

    I hope no one's surprised by this. Mavericks will be released alongside the new MacPro, MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac mini.

    I believe the new iPads will also be released alongside the new Macs.

    Sounds like a reasonable timeline. It will certainly help solidify my decision to hold off on purchasing a new iMac for a while.

    I'd need a new laptop to run Mavericks :/ so I guess I'll only be enjoying iOS 7 on my iP5...

    Cannot wait for Mavericks to be released. No MAJOR changes, but enough of a performance boost on my 2009 iMac thanks to the compressed memory feature.

    Well DP7 is a big improvement, so I'm thinking this means it will be fairly bullet-proof by then.

    Late October is actually pretty good considering they said a Fall release. Technically, September is still considered summer until the 22nd. So releasing something 4-5 weeks into a new season is right on verses waiting until December.

    Guess I'll just install ML over the weekend on my Mac Mini. I did the DIY Fusion install and was going to wait for Mav but 4-5 weeks is a long time.

    September is 'considered' fall to most people, but it's technically still summer until the 22nd.

    Kinda wish they'd get more people on the development teams just so that Mac OS X isn't always placed on the back burner when it comes to iOS. I know iOS & Mac OS X share a lot of code, but there are so many things that can only be done on Mac OS X.

    Until Apple adds the important producer apps on the iPad (Xcode, iBooks Author, etc.) and a few other things (multiuser support), I'm tired of iOS getting all the glory. I know iOS devices sell better, but maybe that's because Apple somewhat neglects everything else.

    What's another 2 months in Apple's universe. The only bummer is I have to wait that time for the new Mac Pro....
