OS X Yosemite release date: The latest Apple Mac OS, the OS X 10.10.
Yosemite is rumored to be available on Oct.
It’s expected to be unveiled at an Apple event where we may also see the new iPad variants launched.
The OS X Yosemite release date has been in speculation for weeks and though Apple has announced it during the WWDC, it was mum on specifics.
One of the key features of the new Mac OS is that AirDrop will now be available between iOS 8 powered handsets and OS X Yosemite running devices.
The OS X Yosemite Beta version has already been release and made available and it’s only a matter of time when we’ll see the Gold Master version, signaling that the availability date is at hand.
According to Apple Insider, there are still lingering issues in Beta version and these include: Extensions, iCloud Drive, Aperture, iPhoto, Safari, Developer Tools, and localization.
The Apple-focus site also notes that Family Sharing on Pages for the Mac and the iOS App Store remain disabled with the current preview version of the OS X Yosemite, but the Cupertino tech giant continue to remind developer that they will need to re-sign applications with new Gatekeeper signatures.
There are still issues with Handoff and TextEdit as well.
The OS X Yosemite Public Beta 3 is the third release for end users that are part of Apple’s AppleSeed customer software seeding program, 9to5 Mac reports.
The new OS has flat design, transluscent panels, and lack of gradients and textures of iOS 7 can be found throughout the Yosemite.
The Verge notes that the new interface update lends a much more modern look to the desktop operating system.
The OS X Yosemite succeeds the OS X Mavericks and like the latter will be made available for download for free.
