Apple to Release Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite in Beta Tomorrow

Thursday, July 24th is the date set for the launch of Apple's new operating system for Mac users. Unveiled last month in San Francisco at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite has a new redesigned look with a refined toolbar, new notification-center features, and a dark mode. 

"All in all, they come together for a gorgeous and more usable version of OS X, the best ever," Apple's SVP of software engineering, Craig Federighi, told developers at WWDC.

CNet reported today that Apple is planning to give its Mac users a chance to use its latest Mac OS. And Apple is said to launch the first public beta version of OS X Yosemite tomorrow.

An additional new feature of Yosemite will now allow users to "synchronize with Apple's iOS mobile operating system through AirDrop file-sharing, iMessage messaging, and the ability to make and take phone calls." 

Other new features of Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite include: phone calls, SMS, Handoff, Instant Hotspot, iCloud Drive and spotlight suggestions (only for are US-based users).

Apple is not earning much from Mac these days. Mac sales only generate less than 15% of the total revenue for the tech giant. However, Mac devices play an important role in building Apple's ecosystem.

Apple has reported strong Mac sales at certain time periods when other PC maker firms have struggled. And Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite will play a key role to boost Mac sales for the sake of Apple in the PC computing market.

Apple has already reported its Q3 earnings report yesterday which showed that Mac sales increased 18 percent to 4.4 million in the quarter ending on June 28.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook said, " We've had overwhelming response from customers and developers to the new features we previewed in OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. 

Yosemite has been redesigned with a fresh look and powerful new apps and iOS 8 is the biggest release since the launch of the App Store. With powerful continuity features, these upcoming releases will allow Macs and iOS devices to work together in even smarter ways.

Customers can start on activity like writing an email on one device and pass it to another, picking up where they left off without missing a beat. They will even be able to make and receive iPhone calls on their Mac with just a click. These are features that only Apple can deliver."

Last year's Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks was made available to be downloaded for free by Apple. And this year, Apple is again going to offer a free download of the beta version of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The official version of OS X 10.10 Yosemite will be released this fall.

Apple has certain limits for using free Yosemite OS. Beta version of OS X 10.10 Yosemite will be available on first come first serve basis. Only one million people who signed up first can access the beta version, per Apple limits.

Only those Mac users can get their hands on the first public beta of OS X 10.10 Yosemite who already installed OS X Mavericks. Mac users can apply for beta Yosemite by signing up using their Apple IDs. Only the approved users will get redemption codes when OS X Yosemite Beta version is ready to be downloaded and installed from the Mac App Store.

But Apple has asked users to back up their Macs before installing and advised users not to install the beta version of OS X Yosemite on their primary Mac computer. Instead they should install it on a secondary Mac to avoid any inconvenience as the beta version can have errors or issues. And users can report about their issues or bugs directly to Apple through built-in Feedback Assistant application.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
