Last year, roughly one month before Apple released OS X Mountain Lion, the company extended its beta program to certain Apple Retail Store staff members. This year, the company appears to be doing something quite similar with the new OS X Mavericks. The folks over at 9to5Mac are reporting that retail store staff are being invited to try the beta of OS X Mavericks. The following was sent to many retail employees:
You are invited to participate in the pre-release OS X Mavericks seed program. Participation, including submitting feedback, is completely voluntary and not an expectation of your job. If you accept, we will provide you with a pre-release version of OS X Mavericks to install and use. You will get to preview all of the exciting new features like iBooks, Maps, Calendar, Safari, iCloud Keychain, Multiple Displays, Notifications, Finder Tabs, Tags, and much more! You should use OS X Mavericks only your personal computer and on your personal time. Apple will provide you with ways to submit feedback on your experiences with OS X Mavericks, should you choose to do so. Apple also asks that you use future builds of OS X Mavericks as they are made available. The responses from prior seed programs have been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Apple retail employees might soon be able to provide more insight into the new Mac operating system.
