Comments and Ratings for OS X Yosemite

A nasty surprise (10.10.1)
27/01/2015 09:10:00 2/5 By Deipnosophista
After a series of trouble-free updates in the past, I recklessly pressed the button for Yosemite and unleashed a long series of problems. The story was not as bad as some of those reported here, but I still after several months have several applications which are unavailable and likely to remain so, and my confidence in Apple is shaken.

Do Not Upgrade (10.10.1)
26/01/2015 23:43:00 1/5 By reecewl
By far the worst OS. There are so many bugs, the wifi, the trackpad, the media buttons. I upgraded because it was ‘NEW’ but its absolute pants! Seriously people if you do, then its your loss.

Utter garbage (10.10.1)
26/01/2015 21:27:00 1/5 By Tude007
What a total disgrace this latest update is. First point to mention I have never left a review for any app or piece of software, good or bad. This update is infuriating. Safari runs at a snails pace (well, it did - now it wont even open it just force quits overtime). So I installed Opera. Browsing is fine, but as many people mention the whole look is terrible - the fonts and renderring is nasty. Oh and if I try and send a 200mb file via wetransfer - it took nearly 8 hours to do 15% so I gave up. This was an issue on Safari when it worked, and still now on Opera so I have no idea what the problems are as downloading software seems fine, as is my wi-fi connection. Suggestions? As others mention there’s countless programs which don’t work, which I can live with. It’s the daily stuff like not being able to USE THE INTERNET which is totally unacceptable. I can’t get Google Chrome to install to use my Chrome cast which I thought was supported. Maybe it isn’t, who knows? The fact is I can’t trust my Mac any longer and this issue is also browser related so I assume it’s my Mac having the issues. My 1tb Iomega media device is no longer recognised, and without a time machine back up (or one I can get to work) I’ve lost a lot of music (replaceable) but many family photos which is more of an issue. I’ve bought a 4 tb WD mycloud device which works well, but copying to it is really slow - not sure if this is the WD or the Mac. Finally start up. Wow I thought I was back to Windows 95 on my old PC. It is THAT slow. Also if the battery runs out (my kids often don’t connect the plug in time) it can be really difficult to log on again as the keyboard seems to totally lock up when booting up. I keep checking back here to see if there is a new update to fix these issues but nothing. I am utterly amazed given Apples history and stand point on issuing tested and reliable software that this is still an outstanding problem and that it hasn’t been corrected. I hope this warns others to ensure they have adequate back ups of files and old OS before trying out just in case.

A more capable and productive OS (10.10.1)
26/01/2015 18:54:00 5/5 By KugaUK
If you’re a sensible user you’ll not have any gripes - because a true OS gets out of the way, not in your way. I have two very different Macs in my house - a MacBook Pro (2009) and a Mac Pro (Late 2013) and both are used heavily. ANY operating system will eventually be too much for the hardware in time, that said there has been no discernable ‘slow down’ on my 6 year old MacBook, and it works just fine on my Mac Pro. Features: Some great features like text relay alone make it a brilliant release, as it works with your iPhone and keeps all my messages synced for those green message friends now too. Mail-drop - YES! About time someone thought of that. Spotlight is more powerful and more capable - it feels like a search engine and not just a search tool. New notification centre functionality and Dark Mode for my film editing days is welcome too, pretty much makes the dashboard redundant. I don’t have an iDevice capable of handoff on my accounts to try that particular feature with though. Design: The design is a modern and simplistic one - but don’t think that means it’s dumbed down, that’s nonsense (no missing features from Mavericks). I agree a long-term OS X user will more probably balk at the visual changes at first, but they’re partially there to make things super easy and I definitely see how more streamlined things are - Safari and iTunes in particular are less cluttered, and things like full screen apps have been rehomed. I’ve been using this through the beta programme, and honestly I’ve never been happier with a OS X release, and so should you - just please do your homework for a clean and hassle-free upgrade if you’re worried. For both of my machines though, there were no problems before, during or after upgrading.

Before you upgrade check this out (10.10.1)
26/01/2015 18:17:00 2/5 By Gaziskwakers
If you have final cut pro or imovie installed and you upgrade you will be forced to purchase them again!!!!!!!! I have just upgraded and now the icons are greyed out, there is no free upgrade for these programs so you are forced to buy the latest version. NOT CHEAP ican tell you. I have renamed my computer not iMac anymore but iCon.

No problems for me (10.10.1)
25/01/2015 23:00:00 4/5 By Mushroom Picker
Read all the reviews and upgraded to Yosemite with some trepidation. Only did it as my free Avira anti-virus software would no longer work with the previous version! I have a mid-2011 21.5” iMac with 4Gb of RAM - so according to some reviews, I was likely to ruin my computer forever. Not so - can’t say I can perceive much difference apart from the fact that my anti-virus software now works. Maybe Safari is a smidgen slower on occasion, but nothing remarkable. Getting used to the new fonts - in a few weeks time, I’ll have forgotten about it. No issues with wifi or anything else that others have reported. No doubt people who have had problems are far more likely to speak up than those who have had a good experience.

Upgrade? (10.10.1)
25/01/2015 11:06:00 1/5 By 121Voyager
My first impression of Yosemite was that it had been hy-jacked fem the local fairground. Icons appeared crude and somewhat childlike; not the usual suave and sophisticated offerings from Apple. Of course, this is just a matter of opinion, but look and feel can make or break a product. Due to the fact that I always keep a copy of the current OS, it was easy to go back and forth between Mavericks and Yosemite; and Mavericks definitely feels the more ‘expensive’, and pleasant OS to use. After using new versions of apps, they seem to be change for change sake. Personally I find the previous versions more pleasant to use! The overall feel of Yosemite has persuaded me to revert to Mavericks. As a non-iPhone owner, the main ‘upgrades’ don’t appeal to me, so I am back with the more attractive and sophisticated Mavericks. As the owner of eleven Macs over the years, I feel this is Apple’s first step backwards. I hope this is not a trend?

Not good (10.10.1)
25/01/2015 10:52:00 2/5 By SpeedyNo1
This is not a great update, mail slow, safari slow, absolutly no problems before upgrade. I even went into the Apple store in Jan to enquire as to the performance of product and was told it was solid with good performance, RUBBISH. This has de-graded the performance of a once perfect product, are we becomming MS? I have a mac book pro with Retina highest spec available at the time < 2 years old. So you tell me should this be performing like this? Apple sort, or you will loos your loyal following very quickly and we know where that leads don’t we. Crap upgrade

Great (10.10.1)
25/01/2015 10:20:00 5/5 By calvinearnshaw03
I upgraded to OSX Yosemite and I’ve found it great! Thank you for a good upgrade :)

DO NOT USE THIS (10.10.1)
25/01/2015 09:55:00 1/5 By yosemitehatesquad
This “upgrade” has been a disaster and there is no going back. Lost many pictures and music files, I cant run many much needed progams like CAD or even watch something using VLC anymore. Shame on you apple! Now I have gone down this apth there is no going back, my computer is much slower and nothing works. I spoke to apple in depth and they tried to say it was a one off and everyone else is complaing but if you look here you can see this is a complete lie. They also said it may be because I have an older computer. I have a 2009 mac book pro that has never had a problem, upgrade to yosemite and it suddenly all goes wrong. I had to replce my hardrive as it competly crashed and now using any progam is a nightmare. SHAME ON YOU APPLE, I personnanly think I should be compensated but I doubt this i even worth the hassle as that would involve anyone that upgrades would be asking the same.

What the fuss is all about? (10.10.1)
25/01/2015 00:14:00 5/5 By A_B_C_Reader
I recently updated my late 2011 mac to latest Yosemite without any problem. I was a bit reluctant a bit after reading all the reviews here but took a plunge after taking a full backup. Fortunately I didn’t need it as everything went smoothly without any glitches and I have to say I am liking this new UI(more like iOS 7).

Great new design and functionality (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 23:35:00 5/5 By Jeeeeeffffffff
Was hesitant whether to update or not, but not one regret so far. Looks great and feels very modern and fresh.

Yosmite (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 20:44:00 5/5 By WulaBox
Great update comes with a stunning design, takes quite awhile, not long but after the wait its worth taking the time to update as it comes with a great desktop back round and is just great. If you havent alrady got it i would reccomend taking the time to update. I hope this review has helped yo and told you some of the benifits of the update but i have only told you one or two, there are alot more as you start using apications and things like that

Slow and Looks cheap (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 17:44:00 1/5 By Foxtrot oscar charlie
Ive been away for a while and I came back to find my laptop telling me to update my OS … Worse decision ive made in a while. My laptop is running slower, programs are taking longer to open and if i open a couple at the same time the “processing wheel” comes up. The icons look cheap as if no thought has been put into them. Wish id stuck with Snow Leopard!!!!

Apple quality is going down (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 16:18:00 1/5 By Costica1234
This is a very unfortunate update that Apple released, partly because they ruined the experience on non-retina Macs… Not the mention the big list of little bugs that crept in this update. Things that actually “just” worked under Mavericks no longer function properly in this bloody update…

Terrible (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 16:08:00 2/5 By Jaked68
Ever since I upgraded to OSX Mavericks I had issues then the problems have got worse since Yosemite , I have had nothing but issues and freezing when doing any tasks from listening to music , to browsing on safari with 2 tabs open. The performance is just generally slow and sluggish , I have no Green LED light on my Magsafe 2 Charger anymore and my mac is always getting hot and the display is ghosting really bad !! Please Fix or Give Me A Refund - Apple Macbook Pro Retina Mid 2012 i7 2.3Ghz Quad Core 16GB Ram 512GB Flash Storage GT650M 1GB Graphics Card

Great! (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 11:34:00 5/5 By LeighW100
Just been reading the reviews on here from people with macs that are 5 years old - what do you expect if you are running a modern OS on a dated piece of kit? It is a bit like trying to run Windows 8 on a PC from 2000 and moaning that it doesn’t work. I think Yosemite is great - it looks great, it works great and beats Windows hands down for reliability and speed. Just wish the dark theme was applied throughout the OS rather than just bits of it. Well done Apple, Yosemite is great and works perfectly with my Macbook Air.

CRAP! (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 09:46:00 1/5 By 6 6 6
Freezes all the time and very slow. Sort it out Apple please

Killed my MacBook and 2009 iMac (10.10.1)
24/01/2015 00:38:00 1/5 By Dinozoiks
Shocking piece of software. Installed on my 2009 iMac. Corruped the HD. Had to reformat and install from fresh. Installed on my MacBook. Completely corrupted the drive (EFI error) and lost all data, apps and personal files. If you HAVE to upgrade, PLEASE backup before you do. Otherwise, avoid, it’s trouble.

Not Bad (10.10.1)
23/01/2015 21:28:00 5/5 By CALLMEEHSAN
It took a long time to download however it is good overall

Don’t believe all you read…………. (10.10.1)
23/01/2015 19:36:00 5/5 By Steveb0703
i have just spent approx 3 hours updating my Mac book pro 15”2013 machine and I have to say that it was an absolute doddle! Backed everything up but have lost nothing, all my normal apps run perfectly, the machine is faster, the apps are faster and the boot time is not noticeably slower than before. All in all I am a happy bunny!!

Not sure what has improved but alot has gone wrong overnight (10.10.1)
23/01/2015 16:33:00 1/5 By Cumbry
Mavericks was great but upgrading to Yosemite was a big mistake. Even Apple’s own Mail, Finder and Time Machine have major issues. Empty emails, won’t shut down, Spotlight is not as good, no Time Machine restore, Safari not as usable as well as having issues. A real shame as I am a massive Apple fan. Let’s hope the next update solves some of the basic issues at least.

how can apple make such a mistake? (10.10.1)
23/01/2015 12:50:00 1/5 By hollyy3
My love for apple is ever growing, and I am never one for change in the first place. However I braved installing Yosemite! I seriously couldnt regret this any more than i am doing. Not only is my Macbook Pro the slowest its ever been, it is also gives me errors for Java and Adobe at least 20 times a day. It really needs sorting out quick, because by the looks of things, im not the only person with this problem. Sorry Apple, but I’m not your greatest fan at the moment.. take my advice and DONT DOWNLOAD

way too flaky - losing files (10.10.1)
22/01/2015 20:58:00 1/5 By mistacriss
I like Yosemite, but unfortunately it is not reliable enough on my macbook to use. I have given it one star as I have lost data. This is a red line for me, a few bugs are not unexpected and perhaps a bit inconvenient, but losing work means that it is not fit for purpose. I have a 2011 macbook pro that has always been reliable, however after installing Yosemite I have had periodic file save problems in Logic Pro X where I cannot save work as “file does not exist” errors are reported. This applies to duplicates as well as ‘save as’ and ‘save’. There were lots of other bugs introduced into Logic too. Please note that I was careful to check that Yosemite drivers were available for my sound interfaces before installing it. I have reverted to Mavericks, which works reliably. If you do try Yosemite, do a full time machine backup first, as it will make reverting to Mavericks a lot easier if you have to do it. I am going to wait some time before trying Yosemite again!

DO NOT UPDATE TO YOoSEeMIiTEe! Ruining my slick mid2012 Retina Macbook Pro.2.3gig i7, GT M650 (10.10.1)
22/01/2015 20:41:00 1/5 By Nanolaca
MY almost £1700 pound computer is not able to process 2 tasks at the same time, for instance streaming a movie on my TV through the lightning port and writing this comment?!At the same time?!

What’s all the fuss about? (10.10.1)
22/01/2015 12:02:00 5/5 By Keet Seel
After reading all the negative comments about Yosemite, I hesitated for a few weeks before taking the plunge and downloaded Yosemite OS. My laptop is a late 2009 model. I had Mavericks OS on it and was a bit apprehensive as I had some problems when moving to Mavericks. The downloading and installing went very smoothly. It took about 2 hours for the whole process to be finished and at the end of it, my laptop is working perfectly well. I then downloaded the upgrades to Aperture 3, iPhoto, pages ….etc… and again everything works fine. What’s all the fuss about? In the end, you have an all singing and dancing working computer with the latest OS for free. Before moving to Yosemite ensure you have backed up your photos, documents …etc… on an external hard drive or cloud, just in case.

Terrible and slow (10.10.1)
21/01/2015 19:20:00 1/5 By BJK 53
Since updating to Yosemite ive experienced nothing but problems on my 2013 Macbook Pro. From everything running extremely slowly, where on Snow Leopard everything was very quick and snappy, to incompatibility issues and so on. My external HDD for example no longer shows when plugged into any of the USB ports leaving me unable to make any time capsule backups, and it’s the same with my bridge adaptor. Really poor, and wish I never updated.

Looks nice, kills everything (10.10.1)
21/01/2015 11:39:00 1/5 By Mac User 995
This will make your mac grind down to a halt. Everything runs so slow, and there are compatability issues with everything; software, hardware, apps, the lot. But it looks nice. I have a brand new macbook pro 2012 13”, and it now runs like a bag of ****. But… it looks nice. Which is the only good thing I can say about it.

Not the best…but its good I guess... (10.10.1)
20/01/2015 19:22:00 4/5 By SalihAhm3d123
This wasn’t exactly great or what i had in mind… i mean its great but has flaws and faults and this Handoff thing with SMS and (E)Mail wasnt all thought out…. u need ios8 + to do this… not great apple you’ve been failing too much lately but its more of a start...

Ruined a perfectly working iMac (10.10.1)
20/01/2015 19:11:00 1/5 By ecizzle
DO NOT INSTALL. After installing on my 2007 iMac it is now incredibly slow, constantly crashes and is almost unusable. Update to fix these issues sorely needed.
