It appears that iOS developers can now download OS X 10.10 Yosemite without needing a separate OS X developer account. In the past, a Mac developer account has been required to get developer preview software from Apple, and will set you back $99, for a total of about $200 for developers with both iOS and Mac accounts.
The WWDC 2014 keynote is done, the dust is settling, and you're no doubt eager to take a more relaxed look at OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8. Fortunately Apple already has you covered on both parts with its preview pages for both operating systems now live over on Apple.com.
Apple announced OS X 10.10 Yosemite today during WWDC 2014. OS X Yosemite features a new design, as well as features like Handoff, which keeps your Mac in communication with your iOS devices, and improved Spotlight search.
After much anticipation Apple has today formally introduced the next version of OS X at WWDC 2014 in San Francisco. OS X 10.10 takes on the Yosemite name that was first hinted at by that giant banner of El Capitan in the past couple of days.

It wasn't that long ago that the OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 update was sent to users, but today Apple seeded the first beta of the 10.9.4 update to developers. There's no word right now what's in OS X 10.9.4, but if we had to guess we'd say it's more bug fixes for Mavericks and possibly some back-end tweaks to help with the coming update and transition to OS X 10.10 Syrah (which we'll be learning more about next week at WWDC 2014).
iTunes 11.2 made the /Users folder disappear temporarily, if you're using iCloud's Find My Mac feature. Apple fixed it with an iTunes 11.2.1 update that appeared later in the day. And now the company has explained the change in a security post. Apple:
