It has been a full day for Apple yesterday. The most anticipated tech event of this month took place on October 16 when all rumors and speculations were put to an end. Apple revealed its latest products including the new iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini, the Retina iMac and the OS X Yosemite new operating system.
The new OS X Yosemite is a follow up to the last year’s iOs 7 and it free to download from Apple’s Mac Store. The new operating system looks superb: brighter colors, simpler interfaces and fewer textures. The new Apple OS runs on any Mac computer that had previously the OS X10.7 Lion version or older. It can even run on Macs that had the OS X10.6 Snow Leopard on. Installing the new OS X Yosemite is pretty simple: you download from the Apple Store and you must have 2GB of RAM and at least 8GB of free storage on your computer.
The new OS X Yosemite offers its users a truly unique visual experience. The new interface is flatter and more colorful without the previous texture and weight. The gradients are more subtle and some of them are gone completely. The best word to describe the new OS X Yosemite is translucent. The toolbars and the sidebars are translucent, and although it can be a little distracting at first, the user will soon get used to it and appreciate it.
With the new OS X Yosemite Apple has made many window toolbars simpler and more compact. The Safari Toolbar changed its looks and is now in line with the Spotlight buttons. The Contacts section is on the vertical side now. Also, the apps icons have been changed: it has a new Finder button and the Share button looks exactly like the one on iOs.
One of the most important new features on the OS X Yosemite is the Handoff feature which allows its users to switch from the app on the iOs device to the Mac and continue what they were doing. For example, if you’re writing an email on you iPhone email app and decide to write a more detailed email that requires more time and concentration, you can switch to your Mac. Awesome, right?
If you haven’t downloaded the OS X Yosemite yet, go to the Apple Mac Store and do it now. It’s free and it’s worth it.
