Rumors: “iWatch” and OS X Yosemite in October; new Macs with Retina display in 2014

As we mentioned earlier today, Apple intends to launch the OS X Yosemite sometime in October. Now the 9to5Mac brought more information about version 10.10 of the Apple desktop operating system, as well as future Macs.

OS X Yosemite (coming soon)

According to them, OS X Yosemite win a version Golden Master (final version that will only be modified if a serious problem is found at the last minute) around October 10th, releasing it to the general public for free on the Mac App Store later this month. October, by the way, should also host a company event for the arrival of the ?iWatch?. Because of this, it is quite possible that both the smart watch / bracelet and OS X Yosemite will be officially presented at the same event.

Regarding future Macs, last week we reported that an alleged new 12-inch MacBook should be launched by Apple in late 2014 / early 2015. According to the 9to5Mac, this machine has a Retina display and a very thin / light aluminum housing possibly becoming the new notebook to be beaten by the competition. It is not yet known whether this new MacBook will be launched as a new notebook line or if it receives the suffix Air / Pro, currently used.

Yes, future iMacs may carry the name Retina. The technology to duplicate the current resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels (27-inch iMac), however, is not yet finished which obviously also influences a possible arrival of the successor to the Thunderbolt Display. However, the launch of OS X Yosemite would be linked to the arrival of these machines, as one source indicated:

These (new) elements of the interface (from OS X Yosemite) seem to be especially optimized for higher resolution screens, so it makes sense for us to launch new Retina Macs around the Yosemite launch time.

Only that all these plans necessarily pass through Intel, which produces the chips used by Macs. And since the new generation of these processors is expected to be mass produced only in early 2015, everything is still unknown. In addition to this new hardware, Apple also plans to update iMovie and Final Cut Pro by adding, among other things, the possibility to import / export videos in 4K resolution.
