Apple Unveils Yosemite, Their Biggest Desktop Change Yet

Jun 7 2014, 10:34pm CDT | by

This OS X update will be the largest departure from recent years

The upcoming update to OS X is going to be incredibly different compared to past releases from Apple. In fact, it is the largest update they have done in a decade, with the exception of iOS 7, which changed the way iPhones look in a major way.

It is far too early to take a long look at how Yosemite is going to work, since it is in the initial beta testing phases for developers and power users, but there is no denying that it looks very different and claims to have a lot of things that aren’t going to be found anywhere else.

The design is recognizable as an Apple product, but it nonetheless looks very different. They have worked hard to change the icons and buttons to have a “flatter” appearance and fit in with what designers now see as the most innovative style. Even the font has been changed to give a drastically different look.

Notifications are also one of the big changes that is coming. OS X notifications will now look more similar to iOS’s than the current Mac version, but it is also going to be much more simple and helpful compared to what is currently available in OS X. The notification bar is going to take over for widgets, rather than working with them as they do now.

These are just two things to think about, but the truth is that this is a major update that we’ll see later on this year. This fall Yosemite will be available for free to all Mac users.

Yes, OS X Yosemite is sexy, modern, and a far cry from what Apple desktops ran 20+ years ago, but that doesn't mean there's no value in nostalgia. Way back when Macs ran on CPUs with speeds of 33MHz (or even less), OS 7 -- also ...

PadGadget’s iPad Tips: How to Enable Handoff in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite

Oct 21 2014 9:58am CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

Apple has added some pretty cool features between its mobile and desktop operating systems. The Continuity category makes it possible for users to access “Handoff,” send and receive text messages from non-iOS devices, and make phone calls on the Mac and iPad. Until iOS 8.1, I was unable to access the features of Handoff. I wasn’t the only one. There were a lot of users talking about issues with Handoff. For me, and hopefully the hundreds of users with the same problem, iOS 8.1 has fixed th ...
