So in no particular order, here’s what’s new in OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6:

Upon launch, you are asked to share diagnostics info with Apple and third-party app developers, the latter of which is a first.

    Was do not disturb previously committed (as you typed) or *Omitted*?

  • Omar Fierros

    I’m not sure if this was there already and never really noticed it, I also read about this feature coming to iOS 8 Beta 6, but Map show you Yelp, website and additional information to a business or place, I love this feature!

  • wwwjfy

    App Switcher now doesn’t show in all screens. Bad news

  • Shenk

    How about Final cut pro iMovie and yahoo messanger? Do they now launch?

    • Saved0ne

      FCP and iMovie have worked since DP2. =/ Motion doesn’t work yet though.

  • Andrew Gough

    The swipe gesture makes a welcome return in Finder having been AWOL in 10.9 and the 10.10 early betas.

  • Justin

    I’m running the beta but have yet to be able to download any new versions. It’s odd.

    • Saved0ne

      Are you a registered Dev? How are you trying to download them?

  • TBolt

    nevermind. Adblock Plus was interfering.

  • Mustafa Aminalhaq

    Does anyone know of a location where I could find any of these wallpapers in any resolution. Preferably ones in 2800 x 1800.

    • d ha

      I know they aren’t downloadable from here…

    • d ha

      …Right click and “Open in a new window” and then they download
      damn I’m good.

    The battery icon changed (both charging and normal), also when you choose to show your HD on the desktop that icon changed too. The iTunes12 beta has been renewed too, with new icons for movies/music/… Also when you turn your music/brightness/keyboard backlighting louder/softer has been changed too
