Mac OS X Yosemite under the magnifying glass


Apple revealed a sneak peek into Mac OS X Yosemite earlier this week. Not surprisingly, Apple updated its desktop OS to match iOS 7’s design language. The new OS X now embodies a brighter and flatter styling, coupled with icon updates, font changes, and translucent materials. Here’s a quick look at the visual design changes in Yosemite and my impressions of them.

A lot of these changes will be subjective as to whether they are good or not. I’ll wait and see for myself.

    I agree with all his critisisms. They’re the exact same ones I had when using the beta. A lot of aspects need tightening up. The settings panel is also an outdated mess. They should make it similar in structure to the iOS settings up, with the categories in a sidebar.
