OS X Yosemite review: a solid upgrade for everyone (especially iPhone users)

OS X Yosemite is a solid update for Mac users, but in order to make the most out of it, you need to also own an iOS device.

Pros
  • Tight integration with iOS devices
  • Clean new design
  • Much-improved Spotlight search
  • Safari has a cleaner design, useful privacy features
Cons
  • iCloud Drive doesn't include a standalone iOS app
  • Can't add new people to a texting conversation unless you start with at least three people
  • Yosemite is a modest upgrade for people who don't own an iOS device
