OS X Yosemite.
A fresh new look for your work.
OS X is the operating system behind every Mac and is designed to deliver a completely intuitive and integrated experience for users.
Completely new design.
With OS X Yosemite, every app has been refined feature by feature and pixel by pixel — a fresh look with all of the power and simplicity you know and love. Spotlight now appears front and centre when you open it, with more powerful sources of information and interactive previews of your content. Even Notification Centre has been completely rethought — with a new Today view and widgets that show you everything you need to know.
Advanced new features.
The apps built into every Mac let you explore your business, connect with co-workers and work more efficiently. In OS X Yosemite, all of these apps have new features that make it easier for you to stay focused and productive. Safari gives you new ways to access your favourite sites, manage your tabs and have more control over your privacy. And Mail now lets you easily add annotations to attachments, like shapes, text and signatures.
Connected like never before.
With OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, integration between your Mac and iOS device has never been better. With Handoff, now you can start writing an email or creating a document on your Mac, and pick up exactly where you left off when you switch to another device. Your iPhone is more connected too — now you can pick up and place new calls on your Mac, easily connect to the Internet with your Personal Hotspot, or even send SMS and MMS texts from the Messages app.*
Built to perform.
The Mac line-up has everything your business needs, from notebooks with all-day battery life to powerful desktop computers. And every Mac is designed with software and hardware that work together seamlessly, so everything you do is easy and intuitive.
Every Mac is made with innovative components that give you smoother graphics, faster storage and great all-round performance. From the stunning iMac with Retina 5K display to the thin and light MacBook Air, each Mac is equipped with fast processors, high-speed graphics and advanced storage. No matter which Mac you pick, you get everything you need to get the job done.
OS X is built to bring out the best in your Mac, so you get a fully integrated system in which the hardware and software work together seamlessly. OS X uses advanced technologies in your Mac to increase battery life and deliver the best possible performance. And OS X is designed for the gorgeous Mac displays, including high-resolution Retina displays, so fonts look crisp and graphics are vivid.
Easy and intuitive.
It’s easy to find, create, share and do just about everything for your business on a Mac. From the desktop you see when you start up a Mac to the applications you use every day at work, it’s all designed to be easy and intuitive. The apps on your Mac also work seamlessly with the apps on your iOS device. If you already use an iPhone or iPad, a Mac will feel instantly familiar.
Apps made for productivity.
On every Mac, out of the box.
Macs come loaded with beautifully designed, state-of-the-art apps that you’ll love to work with, enabling you to be even more productive.
Built-in apps for productivity.
Your Mac comes with many of the apps you need to work — for tasks like sending email and messages, managing your schedule and browsing the web. In the latest release of OS X, all of these apps have been enhanced with a simpler, more elegant look. And apps like Safari, Mail, Messages and Finder have brand new features that make it easier to stay focused and productive.
Collaboration made easy.
Every Mac comes with Pages, Numbers and Keynote, giving you a powerful platform to create and share documents, spreadsheets and presentations — even in native Microsoft Office formats. With iCloud Drive, it’s now even easier to manage your files across devices and keep them in sync, or share them directly with colleagues using iOS devices through AirDrop.
More on the Mac App Store.
With thousands of apps for business, users can find the right app for any task on the Mac App Store. And now apps can be even more powerful with Extensions — delivering functionality like widgets for Notification Centre or giving users access to files from third-party services right there in the Finder. And with programs like the Volume Purchase Program for Business, getting apps for your employees has never been easier.
Make your Mac a powerful server.
OS X Server enables any Mac to easily bring speed, control and collaboration to your organisation. It’s easy to set up and provide services like Mail, Calendar and VPN to your employees. And powerful tools like Profile Manager and Caching Server help your organisation deploy and manage other Mac and iOS devices with ease.
