Apple designed OS X Mavericks similar to iOS 7 as both will feature close to the same appearance. iOS 7 rolled out to mobile device users last month.

It includes over 200 new features such as iBooks, improved multiple display support, iCloud Keychain, new Finder features, Maps, quick reply and lock screen notifications, auto-updating apps, and many other enhancements to improve battery life and performance.

Apple's last major update for its computers rolled out around this same time last year with OS X Mountain Lion. That version brought some of iOS 6's best features to the computers.

The OS X Mavericks Second Golden Master version was seeded by Apple to developers over the weekend hinting at the software's imminent release.

This new version rolled out just a little more than two weeks after the first one. It was only available for users performing a fresh install of Mavericks. Some users have had luck re-installing the new GM over the prior version, according to 9to5Mac.

Golden Master is the status where the software it is ready to ship and be installed on new Macs. Apple moved a fair portion of its Mac software engineering resources onto 10.10 in preparation for the roll out.
