Apple has had us in for quite a few surprises, this year at WWDC. Their work in tightly integrating their iOS and Mac OS systems seem to be what the developers looked forward to. Like with Mavericks last year, we’re here to discuss our findings about Apple’s next Mac OS release – Yosemite.
Like we have done many times earlier, again, we’re not really authorised to try out the Developer Preview of Yosemite. But we figured, there is always a chance that we’d not be lucky enough to see a tomorrow; better live dangerously. So, my partner in crime and brother, Darryl, found a way for us to experience it right now, before you lot get to try it in the beta program. Oh! Here’s a link to sign up for it.
Mission Control was a feature added in Mac OS X Lion as an upgrade to the Exposé feature that was introduced in 10.3 Panther. It was done to accommodate Lion’s full screen apps. It simply brings forth every single open app in one screen. All the full screen apps, along with the Desktop workspaces and the Dashboard are lined on the top of the screen and the closest Desktop apps occupy the major portion of the rest. Exposé now only exists as a vestige that can be invoked on a per app basis by adjusting the option in the trackpad settings.
I’m looking forward to all of Mavericks’ features, so let’s co-title it. Mavericks – The top new features of the next Mac OS X.
This year at WWDC, Apple unveiled a lot of things they’re bringing out for the rest of the year. Honestly, I’m the most thrilled about the next version of OS X. Sure iOS had a major overhaul, but I won’t be thinking about it until and unless I own an iOS device.
