Apple's new operating system will offer new features that speed up Macs, extend battery life, and make for what the company hopes is an easier user experience.

The new system, OS X Mavericks, was unveiled Monday at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, and will be available later this year for download, Business Insider reports.

The new features coming to OS X Mavericks include:
  • Finder tabs: Multiple Finder windows can be pulled into tabs on top of a single window. Users can view various sections of their computers in a single place.
  • Tagging: A document can be tagged when it is saved, making it appear in the Finder sidebar. Files can have multiple tags and can also be assigned by dragging a file to the tag section in Finder.
  • Multiple displays: The OS X dock can move between multiple displays. Two different full-screen apps can be used on different displays, such as an HDTV connected through Airplay.
  • Improved Safari: A new sidebar on the browser allows for better navigation. Shared Links allows users to see the links their friends share on social networks. It also runs faster and uses less power than Chrome and Firefox, Apple says.
  • iCloud Keychain: Suggests hard-to-guess passwords and stores them across devices.
  • Notifications: They can be viewed without opening the app.
