Apple calls for OS X Mavericks app submissions in preparation of launch

In a notice sent out on Tuesday, Apple requests developers prepare for the impending OS X 10.9 Mavericks rollout by testing apps with the latest Golden Master build before submitting their software to the Mac App Store for review.

The short note, seen above, comes nearly two weeks after Apple released the Mavericks GM to developers earlier in October. Alongside that build, a Golden Master version of Xcode 5.0.1 was also seeded.

Tuesday's correspondence suggests Apple is quickly moving toward a public release of OS X Mavericks, which has been planned to debut sometime this fall.

While Apple does not reveal the exact date it plans to unveil Mavericks in today's note, the company is widely expected to announce the next-generation OS X at a special event on Oct. 22. Invitations sent to press outlets on Tuesday read, "We still have a lot to cover," and features the top of Apple's logo with a background made from colorful versions of the mark's "leaf."

Anticipated at the event is a focus on new iPads, though some speculate Apple's Mac Pro desktop will finally emerge alongside Mavericks.

AppleInsider will be on hand for Apple's announcement, which will kick off at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern next Tuesday.

    Developers were, of course, already doing this. But Apple knows websites will publish information like this treating it as news when it reality it is just Apple generating free publicity for the upcoming launch.

    Apple would be crazy not to take advantage of it. And of course, if Apple didn't announce it, they would be treated as developer unfriendly for not warning everyone.

    (Good) developers were doing this, but, conspiracy theories aside, Apple wasn't accepting submissions for review until this announcement. This is also telling developers that nothing is going to change from the GM to the release version that would cause software built and tested with the GM seeds to fail.
