Mac OS X Yosemite: 7 Key Features For IT And Developers

Integration With iOS 8

Yosemite will introduce far more integration between Mac OS X and iOS 8 devices than ever before. Foremost is iCloud Drive, which will employ a shared folder metaphor to keep files in sync across desktops, laptops and iOS devices. Other so-called Continuity features include the ability to remotely control an iPhone from a Mac to make and receive calls and text messages, and receive caller ID info; seamlessly connect and disconnect an iPhone via Bluetooth for web access; send SMS messages from iMessage on a Mac; and connect a Mac to iOS devices for direct file transfers without a network (more on that later).
