OS X Yosemite Review

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.
