Apple’s much anticipated desktop operating system, OS X Yosemite, is available today for free. Yosemite adds a ton of new features and a new design. There’s translucency around the entire operating system, giving more context of where your content is. Buttons are flatter and everything just look much more like iOS 8.

Speaking of iOS 8, Apple will be releasing iOS 8.1 on Monday to enable the Continuity feature in Yosemite. This feature allows you to jump between using any Mac and iOS device with a simple swipe from the lock screen or a click from the dock. For example, you could be editing a spreadsheet on your iPhone and transition seamlessly to your iPad with just a swipe.

OS X Yosemite includes a slew of improvements to Apple’s core suite of apps, including iWork and iTunes. The updated iWork is available for free to Mac users today.

Wondering if your Mac will run OS X Yosemite? Check out the official supported list below:

– iMac (Mid-2007 or later)

– MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
