Apple releases OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 with new wallpapers & icons

 

Right on schedule, Apple has released the sixth preview of the upcoming OS X Yosemite to developers today. This new seed comes two weeks following the previous release, and it likely continues to bring performance enhancements, interface tweaks, and bug fixes. We’ll be updating this post with the changes in Preview 6 as they are discovered. If you find something new, you can let us know at tips@9to5mac.com. The release version of Yosemite is currently scheduled for the later half of October, and it will ship separately from iOS 8, which is not seeing a new beta today. Here’s what’s new:

I use it for 5/10 seconds every so often if i need to quickly work out a date.. other than that everything it offers is already available and i believe the calendar is going to the sidebar they might as well kill it.

This update will cause problems for anyone using Parallels (current version of Parallels 9 anyway), as one of it's services will fail to start.

 

You can start the service manually by using this command in the Terminal (posted by someone in the Parallels forums):

sudo /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app/Contents/MacOS/Parallels\ Service.app/Contents/MacOS/prl_disp_service -e

I don't.  I've tried but more often than not, I want to be looking at one of my application windows while interacting with one of the dashboard controls (for example, a notepad dashboard widget isn't very useful if you want to write notes while referencing a web site or watching some instructional video).

I use it now and then to check the weather but on my machine that has the public beta I find myself using the weather display in the notification center more.

The new icons are nice. Glad to see Apple keeps things consistent in their UI refreshes.

 

Microsoft, are you listening?

Microsoft is very consistent with their inconsistency.

I think that's a good thing. I mean, OS X and iOS are basically married and they practically work together. I'm dying to update my phone to iOS 8 so I can send all of my texts and calls to Yosemite.  :laugh:

 

Matter of fact, is anyone using the phone call feature with iOS and OS X right now? Just wanna know before I do update my iPhone, because even though I have Studio Wireless, I like coding without switching my headset or holding the phone all the time.

That's the idea behind the Yosemite UI - make it look consistent with iOS 7+ while still keeping its own identity.

With DP6 they've added quite a bit more polish to OS X 10.10. What we see now is likely to be very close to the final product.
