Scratching the Surface of Apple’s OS X Yosemite Beta

By on

A lot of technological wonders await everyone this Fall of 2014 and one of those you will have to look forward to is the latest cut in Mac’s operating system, the OS X 10.10, also known as Yosemite.

This beta build promises to remove clutter in its interface and has introduced a fresh new look to your Mac. It is recommended that you back up your data in case you decide to experience a sneak peek of the OS X Yosemite, just in case something goes wrong in your try-out.

Generally the whole feel Yosemite brings is simplicity with elegance. The windows and icons feel more flat and it’s translucency allow you to understand the layers present. Some call this approach as “pseudo-iOS7” as it resembles greatly such appearance and navigational feel.

You can certainly feel the minimalism on toolbars and the focus on the content – whether on Safari, TextEdit, etc. The color arrangement at the top left of the windows pretty much represent a stoplight of a different caliber – red for close, yellow to minimize and green to maximize.

Most users will enjoy the feature in iCloud which allows all your devices to access your files, like Dropbox. The connectivity between your mobile phone and other Apple devices is also pretty awesome in this operating system. It allows the messages on your iPhone to become available in Mac, even answer calls through the latter as long as they are connected in the same Wifi network. These are available in the auto-update integration of apple devices known as Continuity.

There? are a lot more leaps collectively noticeable by any user on the Notification Center with all its useful widgets, Spotlight with more relevant and organized featured searches and iCloud being able to be accessible in Window’s PC’s too.

For sure a few more finishing touches are set prior to Yosemite’s official release. A few bugs are expected to show up at this point, knowing this is beta, but Apple promises an organic approach to style and evolution,?which clearly highlights the elegance in the simplicity of OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
