OS X Yosemite release date set for Oct. 21: Launch to coincide with new Apple iPads


It seems like Apple Inc. is on the roll after unveiling a lot of new products and software upgrades over the last few days.

If rumors are correct, the technology giant from Cupertino, CA will unveil the final version of the OS X Yosemite on Oct. 21 alongside the company's two new iPads.

According to The Daily Dot, credible sources were saying that the next version of the Mac operating system will come out next month during the same event where the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will be revealed.

Earlier, Apple mentioned during the Worldwide Developers Conference last June that the new OS upgrade will be released sometime this fall, but they did not divulge the exact date.

However, the company allowed developers to try the new operating system upgrade.  The first one-million customers who signed up for the beta-testing program were also able to experience Yosemite.

Since the announcement in June, the company has released the Developer Preview 8 and Public Beta 3 to the members of the beta-testing crowd. The OS X Yosemite is the first system upgrade that the tech firm opened to the public to try out before it becomes available in the market.

According to PC Advisor, OS X Yosemite will showcase new features, including a redesigned interface with clearer, more user-friendly controls, upgraded font for easier reading, and cleaner app icons.

The new OS will also feature the Today view located at the Notification Center where users can take a peek on vital information such as the Calendar, Reminders, Weather, as well as their favorite social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

OS X Yosemite will also have a new Handoff feature that will allow the user's iPhone or iPad to be connected with a Mac without having to be connected physically.

Just like 10.9 Mavericks and the other Apple operating systems, the public is expecting to get the new OS X Yosemite upgrade for free for compatible Apple devices.
