OS X Yosemite to Release in Late October, Apple Prepping Major Announcement Event
We've been stuck with OS X Mavericks for far too long. A change is needed. A new OS for a new era (this era being "the year after OS X Mavericks was released).
Luckily, that change is nearly upon us. Apple has announced that the latest Mac OS X operating system, entitled "Yosemite," will be releasing in the fall of 2014. But we're practically in the fall of 2014 already- so where's our Yosemite.
It's not quite clear. But according to 9to5Mac, the new operating system will release in October. Their reports claim that the last developer preview will be seeded on September 29, and that a gold master build will then follow on October 10 (or "sometime around Oct 10). And after that, Yosemite will be practically ours. 9to5Mac claims that with this schedule, Yosemite should be set to launch in the end of October.
Backing up their claims, Christian Today also adds that Apple has an enormous press event slated for September 9, and that's the likeliest day we'll hear about the upcoming Yosemite release date.
Makes sense- companies like to release big info like this to the absolute widest audience, and revealing the release date at a press event everyone will be watching is a surefire way to draw a giant, Apple-hungry crowd.
According to Macrumors, Yosemite has been in the works since June of this year, and will feature a "flatter, more modern look." It'll also have better connectivity between Macbooks and iPhones/iPads, which is definitely a plus, considering that people these days normally carry at least one of those around with them at all times (or all three, just to be special).
Check back soon for the latest on OS X Mavericks and all the other technological wonders Apple has in store for the people who slavishly buy Apple products.
