The world of Ap­ple prod­ucts is a vi­brant ecosys­tem that’s about to get its next ma­jor as­set – the Ap­ple Watch. But the core sys­tems of OS X and iOS have been com­ing closer to­gether for years now, and with Yosemite and iOS 8, the ecosys­tem dream of true in­ter­op­er­abil­ity is here thanks to Con­ti­nu­ity, Hand­off, iCloud Drive and more! We ex­plore all of th­ese great fea­tures, show­ing you how to max­imise your pro­duc­tiv­ity when us­ing all your Ap­ple de­vices to­gether. And we’ll also rekin­dle your love for Ap­ple’s OS X Server, an oft-forgotten soft­ware gem that can be a Time Ma­chine tar­get for your fam­ily’s Macs and use your in­ter­net con­nec­tion more ef­fi­ciently.

Also in this is­sue we take a look at Ap­ple’s new CarPlay sys­tem, which puts iTunes and more in your car. We got ac­cess to Pi­o­neer’s new head unit to see how af­ter­mar­ket CarPlay sys­tems re­ally work.

We also ex­plore un­usual uses for Ap­ple kit, re­view Thun­der­bolt 2 docks and to-do apps for the Mac, show you how to cus­tomise Yosemite and much more.

And fi­nally, wel­come to Alan and Alex who join our team of Ap­ple ex­perts, bring­ing you ex­pert ad­vice that you can trust. En­joy!
