Yesterday “marked the first day of Apple’s public beta testing program for OS X Yosemite, letting thousands of non-developers download the software for the first time. With so many new users, new issues and bugs in the beta are coming to light and being catalogued in our Yosemite forum,” Juli Clover reports for Mac Rumors.
“We’ve pulled out some user reactions from the forums to share, along with some tips on troubleshooting possible issues,” Clover reports. “For users having problems with the beta, the Yosemite forums can be an invaluable resource, and for users still debating whether or not to install the beta software, make sure to check out this post and our forums before taking the plunge as Yosemite is still somewhat unstable.”
“For users who have the iOS 8 beta installed on their iOS devices, MacRumors forum member Armen has put together a detailed walkthrough on how to set up Continuity and Handoff, new integration features introduced with the two new operating systems. Continuity appears to be largely functional for users with compatible machines, which have a Bluetooth LMP version of 0x6,” Clover reports. “Handoff does not appear to be working with 2011 MacBooks, but those machines do appear able to access SMS texts and phone calls.”
