iOS8 & Yosemite so far

9 years ago from , CD at Circular

I wouldn't recommend anyone updating right now if you do any photoshop work or anything that demands a lot of internet activity like online gaming.

So far Yosemite has been crashing from time to time when using photoshop and some updates really slowed down my WI-FI. And gaming has been from time to time been impossible, and we're talking simple games like CS:GO.

iOS8 crashes some apps and also takes a lot of battery without you even using it. Going to the gym for one hour and just listening to music took 50% of my battery.

My Macbook is brand new and my iPhone also, so it's not my hardware.

    Beta software behaving like beta software.

    More news as we get it, until then, over to Clive for the weather.

    Then tell me why you're ignoring any advice regarding this? Honestly, I would expect someone who's working in the digital industry to know that beta software is in fact beta and therefor not ready to be used in production. It is used for those who want to participate in making the software better.

    And if not that, I'd think they would be able to READ before they install anything:

    "We recommend installing OS X Yosemite Beta on a secondary Mac, since it may contain errors or inaccuracies. Please be sure to back up your Mac using Time Machine before you install the beta. This is beta software that is still in development, which means some applications and services may not work as expected."

      I'm very clear about that it's still a beta version. But as you may know Yosemite is released in several versions, over time, with fixes. I'm simply saying that it's still unstable for photoshop usage after weeks of beta testing.

      And I might be interpreting the language behind your post but... Instead of beating your own chest in a show of superiority. Remember to be human.
