Apple announced OS X 10.10 and decided to name it “Yosemite.” It has an redesigned interface where it has typography and translucency which is similar to iOS 7. The notification centre is also improved so now you can show widgets from various apps. And also there’s a brand new feature called dark UI mode.
The spotlight feature has also been improved and it can now appear anywhere on the screen and it will pull information from various sources. Everything is presented in an elegant manner making the experience even more delightful.
Mail is also improved in OS X 10.10 and Apple has decided to address the issue with large file attachments with the help of a technology called Mail drop. So the way in which this works is instead of your message bouncing off mail servers, you can send your attachment up to five gigabytes in size encrypted via iCloud. If the recipient is on a Mac, they get the mail just like before. But if they are on something else, they get a secure link to an attachment where they can download the file.
The new Markup feature in OS X Yosemite Mail allows you to touch up image attachments without using a third-party application where you could draw pretty arrows, add text, create cartoon bubbles and do much more.
Safari has also been improved in Yosemite, now it shows all your smart search suggestions and Spotlight suggestions right in the completion menu, with previews of suggestion snippets. You can also create a new Private window alongside your ordinary windows where as previously, launching a Private window would close all your existing windows. And it now supports SPDY, WebGL, HTML5 Premium Video to efficiently stream video and other modern technologies and improves battery life up to two hours longer for streaming from Netflix on a MacBook.
One of the most exciting feature of OS X 10.10 Yosemite is called Continuity, which allows for much easier and seamless transitions between mobile and desktop devices. This extends to the new Instant Hotspot feature, Messages, phone calls and much more. The way in which it works is that let’s say when you receive a phone call, your Mac shows a notification, you can accept a call on your Mac and it can even use the computer as a speakerphone.
OS X 10.10 Yosemite will be available this Fall and is completely free to download. Registered Apple developers can download a preview version of the software today where as others will be able to download Yosemite betas during the summer.
