You can also download the manual update installer. This is a useful option when you need to update multiple computers, but only want to download the update once. Standalone installers are available from Apple Support Downloads.
The Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9 release proved to be the most significant of all the releases made by apple in the Mac operating system X series. Mavericks proved to have a lot of in-built features that made it stand apart from all other operating systems released under the tag of the Mac OS X line up. The major standpoint behind the release of the Mavericks OS was t make sure that there was increased battery life, more adaptability and add in more application and revamp the old applications in terms of aesthetics.
The mac OS X Mavericks are one of the most revolutionary Mac OS X releases that imbibed all the revolutionary features that make apple stand a class apart. you can download the DMG file from the below link and make sure that you have met all the basic system that requires to run the Mac OS X Mavericks on your Mac system without any hassles.
I did go to the Apple Store, with a flash drive in hand, but was told they needed the computer to do the install. They would not upgrade to an external disk, either. They mentioned that while they had access to Apple the installers were part of one large bundle and they couldn't separate out just one OS and the bundle needed the Machine ID to perform an upgrade. (I suspect that even if I take the Mac in, they might not be able to do the upgrade anyway.)
Going forward, I'm sure that you will ALWAYS download a copy of each Major macOS release (and immediately "Quit" the installer), so that each new macOS will be in your App Store -> Purchases tab. That will give you options in the future for installing older versions of macOS
Our second-to-last question actually stated to happen to us last week, but we killed the download, because we never asked for it at that time (iTunes was going to download Mavericks into the Downloads folder), and no... we have no idea what initiated that Mavericks download as soon as we plugged in iPhone 6+ with USB. Our last question is the biggie. It forces us all to ask, where are we going? Sort of like when Brits explain a parade of Scots. Noone would keep a thing in their pockets, as their pockets are full of holes. Frightening, it is! There must be a download somewhere. Scotland? Our new Mac Pro is in similar condition to "I-Killed" below, TWO CONSECUTIVE BAD MP SHIPMENTS IN A ROW. Only we are not AASP, so we can't use tools to workaround SIP-blocked Apple Hardware Diagnostics and determine what is really wrong (amazingly, with a loot of non-Apple parts, they do that). Or might be wrong (read links below to understand that the MP is a very complex machine, even pro repair people can often only guess what went wrong). Apple Diagnostics just don't work on the new OS. Noope, iCloud was no improvement, groping through firewall, encryption and then SIP.
However, say your machine for some reason really needed a temporary or permanent Mavericks in the eyes of Apple Support. I am certain that then your download would be provided. Apple does keep copies.
Downloading and using different Mac OS installers is very common for troubleshooting purposes, for IT staff and admins, and for tinkerers. This article will discuss where to download and access installers for macOS Ventura 13, MacOS Monterey 12, macOS Big Sur 11, macOS Catalina, MacOS Mojave, MacOS High Sierra, macOS Sierra, Mac OS X El Capitan, OS X Yosemite, OS X Mavericks, Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, and others too.
For earlier versions of Mac OS X, including Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9, Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8, Mac OS X Lion 10.7, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6, Mac OS X Leopard 10.5, Mac OS X Tiger 10.4, and before, the process to obtain those installers differs a bit.
Another option is to peruse the Apple Vintage Software collection at Archive.org which may have image files of older system restore disks and other older system software, just beware that archive.org is not an official distributor of Apple software so appropriate precautions should be taken and only download from there at your own risk.
However, as explained above, Apple regularly updates the OS X installer on the Mac App Store so that it installs the latest version of OS X 10.9. If you create a new bootable installer using the first major update to Mavericks after your Mac was released, that drive should be able to boot all your Macs.
DiskMaker X (previously called Lion DiskMaker) is a utility that makes it easy to create a bootable OS X install drive, and version 3 supports the Mavericks installer. In fact, under the hood, DiskMaker X 3 actually uses the new createinstallmedia program.
This directory contains binaries for a base distribution and packages to run on macOS. Releases for old Mac OS X systems (through Mac OS X 10.5) and PowerPC Macs can be found in the old directory.Note: Although we take precautions when assembling binaries, please use the normal precautions with downloaded executables.

R 4.2.2 binary for macOS 11 (Big Sur) and higher, Apple silicon arm64 build, signed and notarized package. Contains R 4.2.2 framework, R.app GUI 1.79 for Apple silicon Macs (M1 and higher), Tcl/Tk 8.6.12 X11 libraries and Texinfo 6.8. Important: this version does NOT work on older Intel-based Macs - see below for Intel version.Note: the use of X11 (including tcltk) requires XQuartz (version 2.8.1 or later). Always re-install XQuartz when upgrading your macOS to a new major version.This release uses Xcode 13.1 and experimental GNU Fortran 12 arm64 fork. If you wish to compile R packages which contain Fortran code, you may need to download GNU Fortran for arm64 from -project.org/tools. Any external libraries and tools are expected to live in /opt/R/arm64 to not conflict with Intel-based software and this build will not use /usr/local to avoid such conflicts (see the tools page for more details).

The latter two components are optional and can be ommitted when choosing "custom install", they are only needed if you want to use the tcltk R package or build package documentation from sources.Note: the use of X11 (including tcltk) requires XQuartz to be installed (version 2.7.11 or later) since it is no longer part of macOS. Always re-install XQuartz when upgrading your macOS to a new major version.This release supports Intel Macs, but it is also known to work using Rosetta2 on M1-based Macs. For native Apple silicon arm64 binary see above.Important: this release uses Xcode 12.4 and GNU Fortran 8.2.
