Tomorrow, Apple plans to release a beta version of its upcoming Mac operating system, OS X Yosemite. The term “beta” refers to new software that has not been fully tested. Companies like Apple release beta versions of software so their customers can test the software and provide feedback about how well it works.

Apple is releasing this new beta version for free, so your savvy Mac users may be excited to try out the new version. Although it will be fun to test the new features in OS X Yosemite, we do not recommend our clients install OS X Yosemite Beta. The beta version is unfinished and will probably not work with all applications. In addition, companies like Adobe and Microsoft do not support the use of their products on beta versions of OS X.

We look forward to helping you deploy OS X Yosemite when Apple releases the final version this fall. If you have any questions about Apple’s new software, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
