The two platforms won’t be released to the general public until this fall, but Apple announced several new features that it previewed. Here are five highlights for each of the upcoming software versions.
OS X Yosemite
Brand new look — Yosemite features a new aesthetics for OS X that draw from many of the elements Apple introduced last year with the release of iOS 7. This means OS X will feature a flat design, bright, vibrant colors and an extensive use of translucent menus.
Apple said iOS 8 will be available for developers today. It will be released for free to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users this fall.
