Apple says its latest operating system for Mac computers is available free of charge, a knock to rival Microsoft, which is selling its Windows 8 Pro operating system for $199.
Apple Inc. made the announcement Tuesday at an event in San Francisco, where the company is also expected to unveil its latest iPads to round out its holiday gadget lineup.
