Apple at WWDC keynote this year will unveil the next-generation Mac OS X 10.10 operating system. OS X 10.10 is imminent, but will it work on your Mac?
On June 2nd, 2014, Apple is expected to show off OS X 10.10 for the first time at its Worldwide Developers Conference, releasing the software to developers in beta form for testing ahead of a later public release date. Many have doubt about OS X 10.10 on Mac working, well below are athe details that wrapped off.
OS X 10.10 is the next version of the Mac OS and expected to include a revamped look. The first preview of it is likely to come at Apple’s WWDC on June 2. OS X 10.10 has given the significant redesign of iOS 7 and a few visual changes that were introduced with OS X Mavericks, which it makes sense that the next iteration will feature a design overhaul.
Features a “flatter” iOS 7-style design and more defined icons, and with core OS X features like Finder, Mission Control, and Launchpad remaining intact. OS X 10.10 will not see a public launch until later this year, but can receive the first glimpse at the operating system on 2nd June 2014, when Apple kicks off at WWDC.
OS X 10.10 Features
The new Mac operating system will feature an “end-to-end redesign” that the site compares to the drastic changes that were introduced to iOS with iOS 7. The OS will also gain sharper window corners and more white space for a cleaner look. OS X 10.10 goes by the code name “Syrah” within Apple, but at launch, it will be given the name of a California landmark, following the footsteps of OS X Mavericks, named after a popular surfing spot.
The names include: Yosemite, Redwood, Mammoth, California, Big Sur, Pacific, Diablo, Miramar, Rincon, El Cap, Redtail, Condor, Grizzly, Farallon, Tiburon, Monterey, Skyline, Shasta, and Sierra. And its unclear which name Apple will choose for OS X 10.10!
OS X 10.10 system requirements
The current operating system for Mac is OS X 10.9 Mavericks and it is supported on Macs that date back in 2007, and expected that Apple’s OS X 10.10 will run on similar systems, but you could be at risk if your machine was released in 2007 or earlier. Possibility, that 2008 MacBook Air models won’t be supported.
The List of Macs that OS X Mavericks currently supports
* iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
* MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
* MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),

Its unknown on what Macs OS X 10.10 will run on until it’s released officially to the public in coming months. Although, it is planned that Apple will release betas to developers next week and we’ll update this post as soon as we find any more details about OS X 10.10’s system requirements.
Mac OS X 10.10 will most likely to be released in the fall, alongside iOS 8. Currently, Apple is said to be allocating iOS user interface resources to the OS X team in order to get the revamped OS ready for its Worldwide Developer Conference debut.
