A New Operating System for Macs
Apple has recently released its latest upgrade to the operating system on Macs (know as OS-X), and have called this new version Yosemite (after the national park in the US).
This is the upgrade to its most recent operating system, which was Mavericks. Previous versions (in reverse order) were Mountain Lion, Lion, Snow Leopard, Leopard, and a few other animals!
Can I upgrade my Mac?
If you have a Mac that is several years old, you may be wondering if you are able to update it to Yosemite. If you are running any operating from Snow Leopard (10.6) to Mavericks (10.9), you will probably be able to upgrade by visiting the App Store on your Mac.
But some model Macs may be too old for this upgrade. Check out his article for details of which Macs are able to be upgraded to Yosemite.
Fixing 'teething' problems
If you have already downloaded Yosemite, you may have found, like I did, some annoying issues and features that you need to do something about. For example, I wanted to send a link to a Safari page to someone, but when I chose the 'Share' option, it told me I did not actually have any!
This article saved the day and helped me get back these options, and another that discusses dealing with some of the other differences that you may not like.
Some great new features
Of course, there are some great new features. Overall, I am loving it - especially the way that it looks so similar to the iOS equivalents now. This scooped article looks at some of the great new features of the Mail, Messages and Calendar apps.
We'll include more articles on the new features of Yosemite over the coming weeks and months, so keep visiting the iTandCoffee blog!
