It has been nearly 4 months since Apple released OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion making it the ninth major release date of OS X. Mountain Lion brought a lot of new features and integrated iOS and Mac OS X more closely and did much to improve an already great OS but still Apple chose to exclude some little things like Siri and the recently released Apple Maps. That might change with the next iteration of OS X as we are getting reports that Apple will be making its Mac OS and iOS more integrated by including Siri and Maps in OS X 10.9.
9to5Mac reports that early builds of the next-generation Mac operating system, OS X 10.9, are pointing towards a possible Siri and Maps integration with Mac computers next year. It has been a year since Apple released Siri and it has matured much since to become a better personal assistant. Apple has also been including Siri in all its iOS devices so it was only a matter of time after it came to Apple’s Mac OS. While with the Maps app, it is clear that Apple wants to dominate the whole experience so it would take the first chance to make it available on Apple’s entire platform.
Apple usually upgrades its Mac OS around summer of each year, so if we are guessing it right, then we will be hearing about OS X 10.9’s betas making their way to developers soon.
