Purported leaked images of OS X 10.10 leak new UI and design changes
On the eve of the WWDC 2014 keynote, it seems that a few screenshots of OS X 10.10 (which we're guessing will be called Yosemite or El Capitan) have leaked, giving us a purported look at the future of Apple's desktop operating system. Originally reported by MacRumors (and since removed by request,) we can see changes that, as expected, bring the OS X design more in line with what the iOS 7 redesign introduced. In the image above, you see a much flatter Safari start page, with a lot of white space. Additionally, there's a new Dock style, doing away with the current frosted glass shelf in favor of a more simple translucent strip behind the app icons. You may also notice that the Finder icon has been changed. Let's check out a few more of the leaked photos.
Here we see a redesigned Spotlight. Rather than being attached to the menu bar at the top-right of the display, it will now instead launch wherever you have your mouse pointer if the rumors are correct. There's still the Quick Look functionality built-in, and it looks much more like the third-party app launchers that are out there.
Notification Center is sporting a new look, featuring a very iOS-like appearance with the dark background and light text mixed with translucency.
The same goes for Control Center, matching the light translucent background that the feature sports in iOS. You get access to what looks to be volume, album art and play controls, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings, and more.
MacRumors seems fairly confident that these are real, and we have no reason not to trust their track record. Of course, we'll know in just about an hour when WWDC 2014 kicks off. We'll have all the news here on Gear Live as it happens!
