Apple has unveiled the next version of its operating system for its huge Mac userbase and, as guessed by many a couple of days ago, it's called OS X Yosemite.

The name was originally suspected when a banner was seen being erected at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in the Moscone Center in San Francisco, which showed a backdrop behind a giant X taken from one of Yosemite's major landmarks. And it was during that event's keynote speech that the name was confirmed.

The new operating system sports many new features, but perhaps the initial change between it and Mavericks is that its design complements the look of Jony Ive's iOS 7, including the dark background for transparent menus and bars.

There is also a notifications centre that looks similar to the one on iPhone and iPad.

A whole swathe of other features, including Handoff and Continuity, have also been revealed. You can read about them on Pocket-lint in our feature round-up.
