While the Android operating system has been utilizing sweets and Windows has been confined to years and numbers, Mac OS X has designed its operating system to be named after wild animals. So, how do these OSâs make file transfers using your 3-port USB 3.0 docking station easier, or not? Here is a rundown of the latest OS X releases:
Release Date: This version of the OS X was released on October 26, 2007.
What Makes It Different: It was called the largest and most extensive update of the Mac OS X. It had over 300 new features which users could explore. It would be able to support both PC-based and Inter-based Mac computers. Some of the new features included an updated Finder, Time machine, Spaces and it came with a pre-installed Boot Camp. There were also new features in the Mail and iChat as well as a few new security features.
Release Date: Two years after Leopard, Mac came out with the new operating system named Snow Leopard. It was released on August 28, 2009.
What Makes It Different: This new operating system focused more on the changes âunder the hoodâ rather than its user interface and appearance. Apple focused on increasing the softwareâs performance, efficiency and most important, its stability. Other new features that were noticeable were disk spaces that free up instantly after a clean install, more responsive Finder, and faster version of the Safari Web browser. You would find yourself enjoying your browsing time and using your USB 3.0 docking station with the files that you download from the Mac App Store.
Release Date: This was released on July 20, 2011 during the WWDC 2011 at Moscone West.
What Makes It Different: Compared to the other operating systems previously released, this new version had an easily navigable display for the installed applications. The graphical user interface was greatly changed. However, this version dropped Rosetta thus making it incapable of not be able to run Power PC applications, as well as support for 32-bit Intel processors.
Release Date: This was a break from the traditional 2-year gap in between releases because the Mountain Lion was released on July 25, 2012, only a year after the last update was released.
What Makes It Different: This new version incorporated some features that could be seen on iOS 5. These features were the Game Center, iMessage, and the Reminders as a separate app from iCal or the Calendar application. It also allowed access to iCloud for the documents as well as Notification center similar to the iOS 5.
Release Date: This update was announced on June 10, 2013 at the WWDC 2013 and was released on October 22, 2013 free of charge.
What Makes It Different: This tenth release of the Apple operating system. It focused on the unitâs battery life and iCloud integration. This update also allowed access to Appleâs iOS application right on the computer. This also signified the transition of the names of the updates from big cats to places in California.
