One useful feature in Apple's latest Mac OS X upgrade

Of all the changes in the new Apple Mac OS X, the one Anthony Caruana likes most is the ability to make and answer phone calls using his Mac.

Now in its eleventh version, OS X Yosemite continues to refine the Mac OS. When you first install Yosemite - it's a free upgrade and will work on any post 2009 Mac - you'll notice a number of interface changes such as the return of the two-dimensional Dock and a greatly enhanced Spotlight.

But out of all the changes, the one we most like is the ability to make and answer phone calls using our Mac. As longs as you have an iPhone running iOS 8 or later and a Mac running Yosemite on the same network, you can make and receive calls using your Mac as a speakerphone.

There are lots of other updates as well such as better use of the Notification Center.

Unless you have an application that doesn't work with Yosemite - we haven’t hit one in several months of testing with the beta version - we can’t see a compelling reason to avoid this free upgrade.

If you're looking for a more detailed walk-through of OS X Yosemite, here's one we wrote for iTnews.
