Apple has posted the official support document for the latest version of OS X Yosemite. OS X Yosemite debuted last month as a free update for Mac users introducing a redesigned interface to the operating system and several new features, including Continuity and Handoff, that connect the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

As of this writing, the feedback on the OS X 10.10.1 update has been largely or positive, although a few users have reported continued Wi-Fi connectivity issues.

The following complaints were also posted over on 9to5Mac:

“Number on AppleTVs Names are still very annoying. After Updating and re-starting all my devices, this issue is still present. I get a “(2)” in my AirPlay names for my Apple TVs.”

Still not fixed the sound problems I’ve with my earphones.

No real problems with wifi since Yosemite here, nor any issues with Bluetooth. As for the multiple device issue, I do have 9 iMacs on my sidebar when opening my finder… the funny thing is, some are showing different users connected, be it they are all mine or my family’s. my side bar also shows my back up drive, my music and video drive (another i use for storing my libraries of music and videos to keep my iMac hard drive running faster) My only issue has been with my iPhone 6 where sometimes i lose Wifi, but on my wife’s 64 gig iPhone, it still connects. same with the iPads, AppleTV’s, mini’s, iPhone 4s, and macbook pro. all have no issues, except my iPhone 6. it is so sporadic that it doesn’t really bother me, plus i have applecare plus on it as well if anything serious does happen

I’ve has zero issues with Yosemite (and had none with Mavericks either). Lion and Mountain Lion gave me issues with wifi but was eventually taken care of.

As always, please let us know if you’ve tried OS X 10.10.1 and what kind of experience you’ve had with it so far.

  1. Updated to 10.10.1 yesterday, with no issues. Then suddenly this morning, my Bluetooth (keyboard, number pad and track pad) are NOT working at all. If there is a fix, please let me know. My iMac is down until I (or Apple) can get this issue resolved.
