This Is One Of The Most Convenient New Features Of OS X Mavericks

The improved Notifications in OS X 10.9 are great. Not only can you respond to notifications as they appear on your desktop, but the new Notification Center also lets you know when your peripherals are about to die.

Now when your keyboard or mouse is getting low on juice, OS X Mavericks will display a notification alerting you that it’s almost time to change the batteries. The days of getting caught with a dead mouse during a presentation may finally be over.

    This is unbelievably awesome. Takes away the notification that looks like the volume/brightness feedback and the even worse notification where you have to dismiss the “battery almost dead” frame in the middle of the screen.

    I’d have taken a screenshot of the trackpad instead. The trackpad has quicker battery life than the keyboard.

    I was so happy when I yanked my flash drive from my mac and got a notification in the corner instead of a giant red popup window screaming at me.

    Uhhhh, ever since Leopard I get a pop up notification that my batteries are low. This is nothing new. It’s just moved to Notification Center.

    I agree with ‘bdKennedy’ that this is not a big deal. I don’t believe Apple is promoting this as a significant innovation. The Pop-up notice is just as effective.
