A few days back, Apple announced its new desktop operating system, the OS X Yosemite along with iOS 8 at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The new version of OS X brings some new changes and improvements like the enhanced Notification Center, Mail Drop, new iCloud Drive Integration and a lot more. It is scheduled for the final release in the fall of this year. It is now available for the developers only under the build number of 14A238x. If you’re a registered developer from Apple, then you can get OS X Yosemite beta through Software Update in Mac App Store, or Mac Dev Center.
Below are the devices that support OS X 10.10 Developer Preview:
- MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)

If you’re not a developer and want to put your hands on the OS X Yosmite beta before it gets released late this year. Here’s good news for you as Apple is offering a nice deal first time in the history. The Cupertino-based company has decided to give a chance of testing OS X Yosmite to one million users who sign up first. So, go and get the benefit of this opportunity before it gets expired. One thing that you should be aware of is that you’re doing this at your own risk as anything can go wrong with your Mac. So, keep this in mind before going to OS X Yosemite beta.
Here’s a note from Apple elaborating how you can join its sign-up program;
‘’To join the OS X Beta Program, just sign up using your Apple ID, when the beta software is ready, you’ll receive a redemption code that will allow you to download and install OS X Yosemite Beta from the Mac App Store. Then go ahead and start using it, when you come across an issue that needs addressing, report it directly to Apple with the built-in Feedback Assistant application.’’
However, Apple hasn’t confirmed the date when you’ll be downloading OS X Yosemite Beta but says you’ll receive an email if you got registered through its sign up program.
