OS X Yosemite Review

48

OS X Yosemite Review

Last year was iOS's time to shine with a sparkly new interface. In 2014 it's OS X that gets the facelift. Apple has released OS X Yosemite, or OS X v10.10, to be more precise, and with it comes a large number of visual improvements and usability improvements that make OS X better than ever.

Each year millions of Mac users walk into Apple Stores around the world to buy their first Mac — about half the people who buy a Mac are new to the platform, according to Apple. But many of those people have already been informed about the Apple user experience through their use of iOS devices — iPads, iPhones and iPod touches.

So it makes a lot of sense for Apple to align the visual interface of OS X more consistently with iOS 7 and iOS 8 than it has in the past. It's a less abrupt transition for those millions of new Mac users, and it's a more uniform user experience throughout.

Regardless, OS X has its own identity — after all, the Mac preceded the iPhone by almost two and a half decades, and OS X itself was nearly a decade old when the iPhone came on the scene. So retaining what makes a Mac a Mac was very important to Apple, and they've done well with Yosemite.

Read our comprehensive review of OS X Yosemite to find out how.

Everything you need to know from Apple's iPad and Mac October event

Today we were battered with a ton of awesome announcements from Apple, and if you can't be bothered to comb through them all, we've got the important information here.

The biggest takeaway from today's event is the announcement of the iPad Air 2. It shaves down the profile to 6.1 mm (for reference, the existing iPad Air is 7.5 mm thick). There's a new 8 megapixel camera inside that's similar to what we're seeing in the iPhone 6 Plus and a dedicated A8X image signal processor to handle timelapse and slow-mo shots. The front-facing camera has had some great improvements, and lets in 81% more light thanks to a larger aperture. There's also burst-mode selfies to shoot.
