    Apple announces OS X 10.10 Yosemite with new interface, enhanced apps & continuity






    Apple on Monday officially took the wraps off the next major software release for Mac, a redesigned and enhanced version of the OS X platform dubbed "Yosemite," bringing much of the cleaner, modern look of iOS to the Mac.

    Apple software chief Craig Federighi showcased new "translucent materials" in the redesigned operating system, which also features bright colors and new icons. Apple also focused on "precise and consistent" fonts throughout the OS, eschewing their traditional Lucida Grande typeface in favor of a new sans-serif that appears to be a Helvetica variant.

    Yosemite also comes with a new "dark mode," which turns the normally-light gray menu bars and dock to a darker gray, while Notification Center has been updated with a new Today View that can be extended with widgets and apps from the Mac App Store. It's not yet known whether the appearance of widgets in Notification Center spells the end of the Dashboard.





    In a demo, Federighi highlighted translucent sidebar material in apps that reacts to the background wallpaper. Showcasing Notification Center, he showed how widgets can be added and edited from apps that can export them. One third-party app shown was ESPN SportsCenter.

    Mail has also been updated in Yosemite adding a new feature dubbed "Mail Drop," which addresses issues with large file attachments. Apple's cloud-based servers will independently host files up to 5 gigabytes in size which can be accessed by users with all mail clients.

    Mail also gains Markup, which adds the ability to draw notes on attachments included in emails.

    Safari has been enhanced with an improved smart search bar, which includes spotlight suggestions and quick bookmarks. Sharing has been enhanced with quick sharing abilities and RSS subscriptions.

    A new "Tab View" in Safari gives users the ability to quickly glance what they have open, while new private windows can be created separately from an already-open window. Safari also gains HTML5 Premium Video, which supports services like Netflix without plugins, giving up to 2 hours of longer battery life during playback.

    Safari in OS X Yosemite gets new sharing and browsing options, and saves even more



    Apple is giving Safari a big makeover with the launch of OS X Yosemite, as previewed at WWDC 2014. They're adding a whole host of new features while attempting to simplify the experience at the same time.

    Most noticeable is the thin, one-bar browser bar that the company insists eliminates the need for a standard favorites bar. Now, when you type a search term into the address bar you'll be greeted with results from the web, a list of relevant sites you've already added as bookmarks, as well as a Spotlight search of your computer.

    There's also a new sharing feature that lets you forward web pages to social networks Twitter and Facebook, and also send them to your recent contacts via Mail. You can also subscribe to RSS feeds right from the menu and then have those subscriptions pop up in a Safari sidebar.

    Tabs also get an update with a new overview screen that shows a screenshot of all your tabs at once, and stacks tabs from the same site.

    On the Internet front, Safari scores WebGL support for 3D web applications as well as HTML5 Premium Video functionality. According to Apple, this makes streaming video so much more efficient that it can actually save a ton of battery life on a MacBook. If you're watching 1080p video via Netflix, your MacBook battery will last up to 2 hour longer thanks to the HTML5 upgrade.

    Apple publishes Swift programing language guide on iBooks



    Apple just announced its new Swift programming language at WWDC, and has already published a free guide for developers looking to learn the language.

    Swift is a new programming language for creating iOS and OS X apps. Swift builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

    This book provides:

    - A tour of the language.
    - A detailed guide delving into each language feature.
    - A formal reference for the language.

    You can grab the guide on iBooks right now.

    Apple brings iOS SMS and phone calling to the Mac



    In addition to announcing new integration between iOS and Mac OS X with AirDrop support and its new Handoff feature, Apple announced today that it’s bringing SMS and phone calls to the Mac. That means that you can now have your SMS text messages and phone calls from your iPhone arrive as notifications on your Mac. Users will be able to respond to messages and even use the Mac as a speaker phone in order to complete a phone call. Previously iOS users only had access to iMessage messages and FaceTime on the Mac.

    Apple’s new Handoff feature brings further integration between iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite by allowing users to pick up where they left off in apps across platforms using a single swiping gesture.

    During the presentation, Apple’s Craig Federighi used the new calling feature on the Mac to make a call to new Apple employee and Beats Electronics co-founder Dr. Dre.

    Spotlight in OS X Yosemite gains new and advanced search functionality



    In OS X Yosemite, Apple has put the operating system’s long-existing Spotlight search feature front and center. The search user interface that was previous focused on the top right of the desktop is now located at the center of the user interface.

    The search functionality is now enhanced to include access to news and maps as well as the ability to perform conversions and advanced math equations. The new enhancements mirror much of the functionality offered by add-on software like Alfred and Quicksilver.

    OS X 10.10 Yosemite features translucent windows, dark mode, redesigned icons, new co



    Apple has re-engineered OS X 10 completely. Menubars are now translucent, reflecting iOS. There is also a brand new icon set, featuring gorgeously flat iconography. In addition, there is now an optional dark mode for people who don’t want to be distracted by OS X’s default white bright interface.

    Apps have been reworked, featuring translucency and flatter materials throughout. Notification Center, for instance, flies in from the side with glossy blurs, very reminiscent of OS X.
