Yosemite introduced a major revision to the operating system's user interface,
designed with inspiration from iOS 7, while still maintaining the OS X desktop
metaphor. The interface incorporates a flatter visual appearance with blurred
The new Today view in Notification Center gives you fast access to information
you need to know now. Click the Notification Center icon, or use a two-finger swipe
from the edge of your trackpad, even in full-screen view.
Spotlight pulls information from new sources like Wikipedia, news sites, Maps,
iTunes, movie listings, and more. It’s smart about which information it returns, so
you’ll find just what you’re looking for, faster than ever.
The new Messages in Yosemite is an app that recognizes people use messaging
more often than email now for quick, casual communication, and even for work
and longer missives. Apple has also provided Messages with screen sharing

Say you start writing a report on your iMac, but you want to continue on your iPad
as you head to your meeting. Or maybe you start writing an email on your iPhone,

Personal Hotspot on your iPhone when they are near each other.

in Finder, but Apple’s own iCloud Drive now offers you the same thing, with even
tighter integration, using your existing iCloud account.
New Safari is a big change from previous versions, with a more streamlined look
that devotes less UI to chrome and more to actual web page content. You can
scroll through your open tabs with a gesture or view them all in one window with
the new Tab view.
The best way to manage email on a Mac gets even better with OS X Yosemite.
With the new Markup feature, you can quickly annotate an image or PDF
attachment. You can also fill out a form and even include your signature, then
send it back without leaving Mail.
AirDrop makes sharing files between Mac computers simple. And now it works
between Mac and iOS devices, too. So with just a few clicks on your Mac, you can
take a file from any folder and use AirDrop to send it to a nearby Mac or iOS
