Tutorial Description

Enough with the installation!

It's time to start exploring the new features of OS X Yosemite.

As usual, my approach isn't to just cherry pick all the new features, but to systematically go through the entire operating system and take a look at how things have changed (or not).

So in this week's episode, I start from first principles and take a look at some of the basic changes to the user interface, as well as the Dock and the new Today View, "borrowed" from iOS. I also briefly cover the Notifications panel and its configuration.

The rest of the show takes a look at the newly introduced iCloud Drive.

Now that OS X Yosemite is with us, the barrier to using iCloud Drive has now been lifted for many people (unless you still need to access your iCloud data from Mavericks or iOS7), so I take a look at some iCloud Drive optimised applications, as well as using iCloud Drive to sync files and documents in your own folder structure. This episode also takes a brief look at the new iCloud Document Picker on iOS, but I'll look at that in more detail in next week's iOS show.

The full tutorial covers:

  • UI Changes
  • The Dock
  • Today and Notifications View
  • Configuring Notifications
  • iCloud Drive
  • Using iCloud Drive
  • iCloud on iOS
  • iCloud Picker

Just to point out that if you upgrade to iCloud Drive from System Preferences rather than whilst upgrading to Yosemite, you will need to reboot before you can see the files in iCloud Drive in the Finder.
