Apple has taken a different approach to providing its users with a new OS. For many years, any release of a new OS was with much fanfare. Upgrading your OS meant spending money, getting the necessary media, and the OS was to be better and different in all ways possible.
The difference is that, unlike Microsoft, the OS receives updates rather than an overhaul. It’s like taking your bike or car to the mechanic to get it revved up. The best thing is that there are less shaky components and less frequent updates to install.
In Apple’s OS X, you just have to open up your app store, click the update button, and “Presto!” You have a new OS with most of the same components and optimized workings. Apple’s OS X Yosemite, on the other hand, has received a visual overhaul. It’s like you painted your house with a new coat of paint.
Most of Apple’s in-built apps have been targeted with this update. Most of Apple’s OS X still looks similar, but Yosemite converts your Mac into something different. With OS X 10.10 Yosemite, your Mac turns into something that is constantly in-check and connected with the Apple ecosystem.
Yosemite makes your Mac and your iPhone work together perfectly, in sync. OS X Yosemite is cleaner and more balanced. You still have the old dock at the bottom, the same options and settings, a menu bar at the top, and the same old keyboard shortcuts and gestures. OS X Yosemite changes very little things.
With OS X Yosemite, Apple has made it easy for all you Apple ecosystem devices to talk to each other and exchange information easily. Yosemite even lets you make and receive calls from your Mac. AirDrop now works seamlessly between you Mac and iOS.
As long as OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.1 work together, all features sound good to use. OS X Yosemite is a simple set of small changes.
