Apple seeds OS X Yosemite Golden Master to developers

OS X Yosemite golden master

While Microsoft was busy introducing Windows 10 to the world, Apple released the first OS X Yosemite golden master candidate. Developers and beta testers were seeded with the update today through the Mac App Store, and the golden master designation means that the company is confident that this could be the exact same version that it ships to the general public when Yosemite is released later this fall, barring any last-minute bugs (hence the word “candidate.”) OS X Yosemite was originally introduced back in June during the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference, where it was shown to have a radical redesign from the current OS X Mavericks, along with much tighter optional integration with iOS 8.

It’s rumored that Apple will ship OS X 10.10 Yosemite next month, alongside an update to the Mac lineup that would include the first iMac with Retina display at 5K resolution.
