Can You Get Handoff to Work in OS X Yosemite?

Can You Get Handoff to Work in OS X Yosemite?

When Apple first announced OS X Yosemite, Handoff was one of the features I was most excited about. And then this week, when the Yosemite update arrived, I was stoked to use it. Unfortunately, I can't—and not just because of compatibility issues , either.

To go along with this morning’s third iOS 7 beta, Apple has released OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 3. This new preview arrives two weeks following Preview 2. Like Preview 2, it seems likely that Preview 3 focuses on bug and performance fixes.

OS X Mavericks launches for the general public this fall with new Maps and iBooks apps, significant battery life, scrolling, and overall performance adjustments, and power-user features like revamped multiple-monitor support, Finder Tags, Finder Tabs, and a faster Safari browser.

Apple OS X Mavericks: Everything You Need to Know

Apple OS X Mavericks: Everything You Need to Know

While iOS 7 was expected to be the star of Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) this year, it wasn't the only operating system getting a significant update. Supposedly codenamed "Cabernet" at headquarters, OS X Mavericks was unveiled on Monday with little fanfare. The specific improvements, however, are designed to improve performance across Apple platforms. So upgrading to OS X Mavericks won't just make life on your Mac easier. It'll make life easier.

Screen Shot 2013-04-17 at 5.32.36 PM

Following the most recent build just over a week ago, Apple has seeded another build of the upcoming OS X 10.8.4 to registered developers.

The new build comes in at build number 12E33a, and Apple asks developers to, again, focus on Safari, WiFi, and Graphics Drivers.

We previously reported that OS X 10.8.4 has hooks to support faster, 802.11ac WiFi connectivity. 

Thanks, D!

Apple next-generation MacBook Pro (with Retina display) eyes-on at WWDC 2012

Apple nextgeneration MacBook Pro with Retina display eyeson at WWDC 2012

Heh -- rumor didn't have this one! We just wrapped our eyes around Apple's new 15.4-inch "next-generation" MacBook Pro here at WWDC 2012, and while it was under lock and key, it doesn't take a touch to see that this thing is devilishly thin. For all intents and purposes, this is the 15-inch MacBook Air that many have been waiting for. Gone is the optical drive, and in are two USB 3.0 ports, two Thunderbolt sockets (side-by-side, instead of one on each edge), a full-size HDMI socket, a 3.5mm headphone port and an SD card slot. Oh, and a MagSafe 2 power connector. On one hand, it's great to see Apple finally embracing USB 3.0; on the other, it's obvious by the duo of Thunderbolt sockets that it'd prefer use those. Whatever the case, the new Pro is quite the looker, and we're guessing Apple won't have any issues moving too many of these beauts -- even at $2,199 (and up).

Unfortunately, there's no new Pro sitting around outside of a case, but you can enjoy a few glass-enclosed glamor shots in the gallery below.
