Apple will be back this fall with the all new MAC OS Yosemite which will be more powerful, easy to use and will seamlessly provide connectivity between your all Apple devices. We can say that with Yosemite, the MAC will be completely redefined. The interface of Yosemite will be more beautiful with added transparency and intuitive features that are accessible at all times.
OS X Yosemite have a brand new interface and it’s designed to have uniform integration with iOS 8. OS X Yosemite is still in beta, so lots of details could change between now and its final release this season.
Design and Look
A design area that OS X Yosemite really plays up is window transparency. The sidebars in apps such as the Finder and Messages are now semi-transparent. The effect lets you see more of what is happening in the application windows in the background, especially while multitasking with lots of apps. The system’s font has also changed, moving from Lucida Grande to Helvetica Neue. That means the font for menus and preferences throughout the system are now Helvetica Neue, just like in iOS 7. The icons are all redrawn and have a nice mix of design elements between iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks.
A new feature has been added to the Notification panel which tells you what exactly you need to know. With OS X Yosemite, the Notification Center takes on many of the same elements that are available on iOS 7 and iOS 8, especially the “Today” screen, which shows a list of appointments, weather conditions, reminders and stock quotes. It gives you a concise summary of the day’s upcoming events, reminders, and birthdays. You can access Notification Centre with just a swipe. It’s always available, even when you’re working in full screen.
With iCloud you will get access to all your files and folders from anywhere in the world. The data is stored inside app folders on your iPhone or Mac. As the name suggests, iCloud Drive can also be used as general cloud storage for files that can be accessed anywhere. Apple has also added AirDrop support between the Mac, iPhone and iPad so that you can easily transfer files from one device to another with ease.
The idea behind the spotlight was to provide users with the information they want, based on what they type. Spotlight uses a lot of the same information that powers Siri, but uses search terms for input rather than voice. With Spotlight you can type into it and in addition to seeing data from your Mac or connected hard drives, you can also pull up Meta data from top searches on the web, Wikipedia entries, iTunes files, maps and even movie listings.
In addition to the above features the Mac OS Yosemite will provide you with a refreshed and redesigned Safari, Apple browser, better messaging facility as messages from your phone will also appear in the messaging app. Better mail options with attachment up to 5GB. Mail Drop will be employed for sending huge attachments to other users. You can send files up to 5GB in size, without having to go through your mail sever.
