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!
