Today at Apple’s worldwide developer conference they released the next version of their popular Desktop operating system OSx. They released OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the new update provides a cleaner design which resembles a lot iOS 7. The OS now has a much more clean interface with translucent panels, flat design, and lack of gradients and textures and this new design overhaul can be found throughout OS X 10.10. The app icons now feature flatter designs with windows of apps being translucent and with sharper corners. And windows can now adjust color and temperature based on the users selected background just like in iOS 7 and now in iOS 8. The notification center has been greatly improved in Yosemite, you can now view your calendar, reminders, weather and an much more. Apple also says that now the capabilities of the notification center can be expanded thanks to third-party widgets. OS X 10.10 is more of a visual refresh then a complete overhaul of the operating system. In my opinion the biggest improvement to OS X is the better the better integration with apple’s other devices such as the iPhone and iPad. Compelling users to buy themselves into the Apple ecosystem and at the end of the day, I believe that OS X 10.10 was a very interesting update and that it will be benefit consumers in the long run. The developer preview will be available today and the public beta will available this summer. Everyone else will get the update this Fall.
