June 2nd, Apple unveiled the next version of OS X, Yosemite. Yosemite is currently only available to developers and is in “Developer Preview 1” release stage.
After installing Yosemite, you’re greeted with a whole new level of Mac OS X.
Over the years, OS X has changed in many ways. But the principles that deﬁne it haven’t: power, simplicity, beauty. So when Apple set out to create OS X Yosemite, they wanted to make it more powerful and easier to use, while maintaining the elements essential to Mac. It’s the next natural step in the evolution of OS X. Not just because of how it looks. But because of what it empowers you to do. Thoughtfully redesigning OS X meant going deep into every aspect of the interface and focusing on details large and small. There are obvious changes to big things, like translucency in windows and streamlined toolbars. And there are more subtle changes to a lot of small things, like the buttons, icons, and font you see throughout the system. The more you use your Mac, the more you’ll notice, and the more you’ll love it. By adding translucency to certain interface elements in OS X Yosemite, we’ve put a greater emphasis on your content. Translucent toolbars let you know there’s more to see than what’s visible in the window as you scroll. And a translucent sidebar lets you see what’s hidden behind the active window. So the interface takes on the look of your desktop image and your content — making your Mac experience different from anyone else’s. The new Today feature in Notification Center tells you everything you need to know now. It gives you a concise summary of the day’s upcoming events, reminders, and birthdays. It even summarizes tomorrow’s events. In addition, you’ll get quick access to important information with widgets like Calendar, Weather, Stocks, World Clock, Calculator, and Reminders. And you can customize what you see by adding more widgets from the Mac App Store. You can access Notification Center with just a swipe. It’s always available, even when you’re working in full screen. The fastest way to find things on your Mac keeps getting better. The redesigned Spotlight appears front and center when you open it. It’s great for looking up information from sources like Wikipedia, Bing, news, Maps, movies, and more. And it gives you richer, more interactive previews of your results. So you can read a document, send an email, or make a phone call by clicking a result.
