Photos of the alleged OS X 10.10 features were posted on Reddit this morning, but we’re soon removed. It looks like Mac OS is taking a turn towards an iOS 7-ish design. The addition of Control Center apparently includes ‘About This Mac’ and system preferences.
Below those are buttons with drop down menu functionality for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth along with a screen brightness slider, followed by audio controls that include the ability to display album art.
The next section includes a volume slider, as well as AirDrop and AirPlay buttons. At the very bottom of the pane is a set of four buttons that appear to be for system sleep, log out, restart, and shutdown.
It also looks like Safari has had a subtle redesign, looking similar to the iPad safari design.
A look at control center.
It looks like Spotlight has taken inspiration from the popular Alfred search application from the Mac App Store.
As far as the dock goes:
Visible in all four photos is the Dock, which does away with the current “shelf” motif in favor of a translucent strip as on iOS. The vast majority of the app icons appear unchanged, with the most obvious exception being the Finder icon, which does away with the current background but keeps the iconic double face line drawing.
The original poster claims he took these photos on March 24th at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino.
What do you think of these photos? We’ll find out later today if they’re legit.
