At the iPad launch event, Apple also announced that it will be releasing the OS X Yosemite today. The latest desktop operating system will be available for free on the Mac App Store today.

The OS X Yosemite brings a plethora of features; chief among them is major graphic improvements to the user interface. The new UI is more user-friendly sporting a modern look with a clean and flat design. Apple has also put a lot of emphasis on making several of the elements translucent.

Yosemite also introduces two new features — Handoff and Continuity — using which users can pick any of their iOS 8, and OS X-powered device and continue their work from where they left it. Continuity, on the other hand, allows users to take and make phone calls right from the computer.

As part of the major operating system update, Apple has also improved several of its apps with new features. The Mail client for instance now allows Markup editing, while Safari continues to prove that it is the most battery friendly web browser out there. You can check out a detailed list of features here.
