OS X Yosemite free

Apple's OS X Yosemite is looking mighty fine with it's radical iOS-like redesign. Many are chomping at the bit to get their hands on it, and Apple has let us know that the public release for OS X 10.10 will be coming this fall, and as with Mavericks, it will be completely free. Developers can get their hands on the preview today, but if you aren't a dev and want early access, Apple will have a Yosemite preview this summer. Just head over to the OS X Preview page to sign up.

iCloud Drive: Apple finally lets you browse and store iCloud documents on Mac, iOS, and Windows

iCloud Drive

We've waited a few years to get here, but Apple just announced iCloud Drive during its WWDC 2014 keynote. What is it? Well, iCloud Drive allows you to browse, view, store, and manage your iCloud documents and data in a way that sounds similar to Dropbox. Now, you can see what exactly is using your iCloud data, and you can store anything you'd like within your iCloud account--not just documents and whatever the apps you use want to store there. It's built right into the OS X Yosemite Finder, and is also available on iOS, and even Windows.

OS X Yosemite WWDC

Apple has just announced OS X . As featured in a leak earlier today, the new operating system takes a bunch of design cues from iOS to bring visual parity between the two Apple operating systems. Apple's Craig Federighi showed off all of the new features, followed by a demo.

Tentpole features in the redesign include new, flat icons that are reminiscent of the iOS 7 redesign.  An optional dark mode changes the menu bar from white to black, which allows you to get rid of the striking white for those who don't want it. Apple has also brought in a bunch of transparency and translucency, with the frosted glass look throughout the UI.

OS X 10.10 name may have been revealed by WWDC banner

OS X 10.10 WWDC banner

Apple's WWDC 2014 kicks off this Monday morning, and the company is hard at work getting the Moscone Center dolled up prior to showtime. One of the posters that is going up is the one for OS X 10.10, and it may have revealed the name of the next major Apple desktop operating system.

The banner, pictured above (credit to The Verge,) shows the El Capitan granite monolith in Yosemite. Apple has filed for the rights to the named OS X El Cap, OS X El Capitan, and OS X Yosemite. Of course, there's no way to know which name Apple will be going with until they make the announcement on Monday, but the banner certainly does narrow things down quite a bit, doesn't it?

Stay tuned for full WWDC 2014 coverage this Monday.
