Updating current generations of MacBook Airs to Mavericks

by masoud_kakoli / September 6, 2013 11:59 PM PDT

I know that OS X Mavericks has not yet been released for public use. However, I would like to know that is it possible to update current generations of MacBook Airs featured with Intel's fourth generation of processors, Haswell, to Mavericks for FREE after it releases for public use?

Thanks in advance!!!!

Why would you expect Mavericks to be free?
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / September 7, 2013 1:02 AM PDT

Apple usually has an "Up to date" program that allows buyers of any Mac product that is purchased within a specified time span before the official launch of Mavericks, or purchase a Mac that does not ship with Mavericks AFTER the official launch, to update for free.

Everyone else will have to purchase it.

I live in Iran and due to sanctions I'm unable to pay for the update. I mean that I cannot use any international debit/credit card. Did you understand me?

As we all have to live with our government meddling you have to find a way without getting yourself into a jam.

Sometimes you find folk that demand that Apple change the world.
