Apple Updates: Yosemite Developer Preview 8/ Public Beta 3

os-x-yosemiteI’m not going to go into too much detail here. I’ve covered this quite a bit so far. Suffice it to say, that while the OS in and of itself seems much more stable than it has in the past, I’m having issues again with Bluetooth and my new, iPhone 6, as I mentioned earlier.

Continuity is still cool, and most of it works well. However, it needs some work. This is something that really needs to get addressed and addressed well before the release of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The whole thing with the integration between the desktop and the mobile only works if the connection between the two platforms is solid. Right now, its not. Apple still has work to do.

Conclusion
I’m going to make this short too. Everything that Apple has shown us in the past few days should be considered a work in progress. While the hardware for iPhone 6/6+ is finalized, things like Apple Pay have not been implemented yet and won’t be for a month or more as of this writing. There will likely be some software revisions that need to take place in order to enable all of the hardware functionality that is currently dormant and not used. Which brings us to iOS 8…

iOS 8, though also released, is definitely a work in progress. With everything that I have seen of it so far, it definitely feels as though the finishing touches on it were rushed. As apparently, was its latest update.

While finishing the conclusion section of this article, iOS 8.0.1 was released to help introduce support for HealthKit apps, provide Photo Library fixes, as well as fixes for third party keyboards, Reachability, etc. However it has some SERIOUS issues.

First and foremost among those include breaking cellular connectivity (your iDevice can’t connect to a cellular network, which makes your iPhone effectively…a door stop), and the inability for TouchID sensors in the 5s, 6 and 6 Plus to recognize or setup any new finger prints.

USERS ARE ADVISED TO NOT INSTALL iOS 8.0.1 until these issues can be addressed.

If you’re using OS X Yosemite, the OS is very usable. Its stable enough for daily use at this point, but if you’re looking for the finer points such as Continuity and Handoff to work as designed, you should understand that these also need work.

I’m in the process of working on my iPhone 6 review and I will have a first impressions document published in the coming days. Please stay tuned to Soft32 for all the updates!
