Leaked OS X 10.10 screenshots: what the leaked images of Yosemite suggest
Apple’s OS X is set for an update at WWDC tonight, but if a set of blurry leaked photos are correct, the look of the desktop OS will shift towards iOS. Take a look at our Apple WWDC 2014 live blog and video stream to follow the event tonight at 6PM.
The images were leaked to Reddit last night, with the poster claiming they were taken in Apple’s headquarters – though no proof of that was offered, one of the moderators claimed to have “verified” them. The images have since been removed from Reddit.
The leaked screenshots were also tweeted by City AM’s technology journalist, Oliver Smith.

While there’s no evidence the images are real, MacRumours and other Apple specialist sites have suggested the photos match well with what their sources have been telling them.

If the leaks are accurate, OS X will be getting a Control Centre that’s similar to iOS. It appears to slide out from the side of the screen to offer faster access to settings such as Airplane Mode, screen brightness, and shut down and restart, for example.
OS X 10.10 – codenamed “Yosemite” – will also revamp the Notification Centre, making it look similar to iOS, while Safari will also be updated – and, this shouldn’t be a surprise – to look more like the version of the browser for the iPad, according to MacRumours.
The Dock has also been tweaked, with a 2D Dock – a change seen in other leaked images, notes TekRevue.
Those wanting to know more about the next version of OS X don’t need to wait long: it’s expected to be revealed at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference tonight. Check back on the site at 6pm tonight for our coverage.
