OS X Yosemite introduces a beautiful new design and useful new connections between your Mac and iOS devices, and amazing new features for the apps you use most.

Accessibility
  • eBooks support the reading of ePub documents and rich, interactive Multi-Touch textbooks with VoiceOver.

AirDrop
  • AirDrop works between Mac and iOS. With just a few clicks on your Mac, you may take a file from any folder and use AirDrop and send it to a nearby Mac or iOS device.
