OS X Yosemite: Macworld's complete guide to Apple's new feature-packed OS

Jon Phillips | Oct. 20, 2014
Apple's latest OS X version, Yosemite, is ready for download, but simply installing the system is only the first step in a very interesting journey. Apple has made significant changes across OS X, improving the Safari browser, Notifications Center, Spotlight searching, and even how the desktop finds synergy with iOS devices.

Spotlight searching expands its repertoire

Spotlight started as a relatively simple system search tool. Today, in Yosemite, it's a full-fledged Internet crawler that can not only rifle through your OS, but also the web, Wikipedia, news headlines, maps, Bing, the App Store, iTunes, and even movie show times. We discuss all the new Spotlight features here.

Mail, Messages and Calendars

OK, they don't pack the same levels of glitz and glamour as the tweaks listed above, but changes to Mail, Messages, and Calendar will certainly influence your Yosemite experience. You can read about new features like Mail Drop, Markup, and Soundbites here.
