Apple unveils OS X Yosemite

OS X YosemiteWith a large focus on linking together its mobile and PC operating systems, Apple revealed its latest version of the Mac OS X, dubbed Yosemite, Monday at its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The operating system has a new look, a refined toolbar, new notification center features, and a dark mode, Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, told developers. Additionally, the OS will now synchronize with Apple’s iOS mobile system through AirDrop file sharing, iMessage messaging and the ability to make and take phone calls.

“All in all, they come together for a gorgeous and more usable version of OS X, the best ever,” he said.
