There are some interesting features aimed at integrating both types of software more closely, such as the ability to switch a call from your iPhone to your Mac. You can also switch documents that you’re working on between iOS and OSX devices.
But not all of iDevices and Macs will get the update. Users who’ve bought an iPhone or iPad recently are lucky enough to receive the upgrade. But if they are still using an iPhone 3 or original iPAd, they’re stuck.
Here’s the full list of all the Apple Devices that will support iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5C
- iPhone 5S
- iPod Touch 5th generation
- iPad 2
- iPad with Retina Display
- iPad Air
- iPad Mini
- iPad Mini with Retina Display
OS X 10.10 Yosemite Developer Preview System Requirements:
- iMac (mid-2007 or newer)
- MacBook Air (late 2008 or newer)
- MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
- Mac Mini (Early 2009 or newer)

The only drawback of new Apple software is that it replaces old Apple hardware.
