Mac OS Upgrades

Yosemite 10.10 is now out – and we instantly recognise a great improvement over Mavericks. In fact we recommend it as a solution to many previous issues.
Further refinement has arrived with upgrades to Mac OSX 10.10.1 and more recently to 10.10.2 cleaner cosmetically , minimal and intelligent



Mavericks 10.9 – though we are generally advising customers to delay a little installing it until all the testing and users suggestions are back in and the updates complete. This process usually takes a few weeks sometimes a few months. If Mavericks came on your new Mac don’t worry but older machines can have sometimes have quirky needs not always foreseen on day one of a new system release.


System Upgrades are generally a good idea…

The speed and stability of your computer can be often enhanced by the latest Mac OS upgrades. iTunes may be demanding a later OS for compatibility with your iPod or iPhone. Let us quote you on the cost of doing this – including the safe backing up of your files and apps, before reformating the drive and installing firmware and OS upgrades. Apple tends to drive the pace of operating system upgrades and it is advisable to not slip too far behind –  not more than 2 system numbers(10.6 – 10.8) is advisable.
