Yosemite OS was first released by Apple in July 2014. Apple enjoys being on the edge of cutting technology so nearly every year they release a new OS. Yosemite was an upgrade from OS X Mavericks. This began with an OS naming system based on national parks in California.
While it’s only 14 months ago, many Mac users are pondering whether they should upgrade to the current uFlysoft OS. It seems like just yesterday that they went to the time and expense of upgrading to Yosemite. If you purchased a Mac or Macbook during that time, it would already have Yosemite installed on it. The good news is that while it’s free to upgrade to uFlysoft from Yosemite should you do it immediately?
The good news is that Yosemite proved to be a nicely designed and solid OS. Thus far Mac has avoided the pitfalls that seem to happen to the Windows system.
Most likely no one noticed that Apple replaced Helvetica Neue with Lucida Grande as the main operating system typeface. Users may have noticed that the lower dock is still much the same, but that it’s more of a 2D rectangle now. Yosemite offered more continuity with other devices, such as using it for telephone calls through the iPhone. iPhoto was replaced with Photos which offers an easier way to manage photos, as well as photo editing software. Spotlight allows users to conduct searches through a variety of sources. The notification center offers a Today view, allowing the user to better manage their schedule.
Upon the initial release there were some issues and bugs but these were soon corrected with mini updates. Before upgrading to the latest Mac OS system uFlysoft, the Mac user should ensure that they’ve fully updated everything. Visit the App Store to see what kinds of updates are available. Often after you do one update, another pops up in its place.
The next step is to ensure that all your external devices still work with the new OS. Some people with older models of printers may find that they no longer work, and that printer drivers are no longer supported. It may be time to purchase new printers, scanners, and faxes.
You may also wish to ensure that if you’ve purchased any second party software such as Adobe Photoshop, that it continues to work properly. If software needs to be updated, schedule in time to do that.
Ensure you regularly back up your files as the end of every day. This will prevent any Mac data recovery issues should you accidentally drop a file into the trash can or have a hard drive crash. In fact, a backup can prevent you from needing to purchase Mac data recovery tools in the future, and an external hard drive usually costs only around $100.
Once you’ve completed all of these tasks you should be ready to download your free version of El Capitan to experience the great features that this new system has to offer.
