The public will get a taste of Yosemite starting tomorrow

OS X Yosemite was announced back in early May at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). Apple announced during its unveil that a public beta of the operating system would be made available this summer, and true to its word the company is delivering.
 
The public beta will be made available starting tomorrow at around 1PM EST. Mac users that want to test out the operating system can do so by signing up here.
 
Yosemite brings with it a host of new features, along with heavy use of translucency throughout the operating system. If you weren’t a fan of the “flat” and colorful UI design of iOS 7, you definitely won’t like what Apple has to offer with Yosemite. However, the changes do bring the two operating systems closer together stylistically.

 
But Yosemite and iOS aren’t just becoming more closely knit with respect to UI design; they’re also becoming more intertwined functionally as well. Through the use of a feature called Handoff, Yosemite and iOS 8 users will find it easier to start work with an app on your iPad or iPhone, and pickup up where you left off on your Mac (or vice versa). Likewise, you can answer phone calls from your iPhone with Yosemite, using the your Mac’s built-in microphone and speakers as a speakerphone.
 
iCloud has been beefed up to include file storage with iCloud Drive, and the Mail app has been upgraded with a new MailDrop feature which makes it easier to handle large file attachments. AirDrop now works between iOS and Mac devices, and Yosemite now supports “Instant Hotspot” functionality that will automatically put your iPhone in the list of available hotspots on your MacBook Pro/Air when in range (so you don’t have to go digging through the settings menu on your iPhone to set it up).

 
There are dozens of other new features available with Yosemite, which you can read about here.

The offiical, final release of Yosemite will be made available this fall.
