Last Thursday, Apple announced some of its newest products that put an end to all the rumors and speculations that have been going around for some time in the tech world. Apple announced their new iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini 3, Retina iMac and the OS X Yosemite. Today we want to take a quick look at the OS X Yosemite and discuss about its most important features.
The OS X Yosemite is actually number 11 on the list of Apple operating systems and it’s compatible with laptops and desktops that have the Apple signature on it. The OS X Yosemite is the second version of OS X, which marks the second time Apple has released an important update downloadable for free.
OS X Yosemite is the first version of the Mac OS that features a public beta since 2000 when Apple released the public beta of OS X. The new OS X Yosemite is also the first operating system to have the interface theme which first debuted on iOS 7 and also the first operating system to feature a set of services that utilizes the built-in wireless network protocols, known as Continuity. This feature enables lots of interactions between Apple tech devices.
If you want to install the OS X Yosemite you don’t need much. It runs on MacBook Air and Mac Pro computers, as long as the devices are from 2008 and later. If you have a MacBook Pro or an iMac, they must be from 2007 and later. The exceptions are MacBooks, Mac Mini and Xserve which must be from 2009. The MacBooks must have the aluminum casing.
To install the OS X Yosemite you need to have at least 8GB of memory on your computer, but 16GB will be ideal for the new OS to function perfectly. Before installing it you need to do a complete backup of your existing system.
