iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite might launch separately

Apple is preparing to give iOS and OS X users a way to move work from one platform to another, without having to save and re-open folders. Continuity, the name Apple gave at WWDC, will be the function that makes switching devices easy.

Essentially, this allows users who work on any of Apple’s services to switch between iOS and OS X. The new iCloud formatting makes the switch simple, users only need to click on a box in the bottom left to switch screens and continue working.

It is an excellent feature for big fans of Apple that use both OS X, iOS and work with Apple’s services. The latter will bring the numbers down slightly, since Google Drive, Office 365 and other productivity suites are available.

Oddly, it appears Apple is preparing to launch both OS updates at different times, meaning Continuity will not be available at launch. Considering it is one of the top features shown off at WWDC, it might be a shame to see it linger for months on end.

iOS 8 is expected to be the first OS update launched this year, coming in September along with the new iPhone 6. We still aren’t sure if there will be one or two size options for the iPhone 6 at launch, hopefully the latter if delays aren’t an issue.

OS X Yosemite, on the other hand, might not be coming until October. This would fit with Apple’s usual release date for Macbook and iPhones, the MacBook line normally comes alongside the iPad, and potentially the iWatch this year.

Apple wants to get the iPhone out early this year, in order to focus on iPad, MacBook and iWatch in the later stages of the year. Reports say Apple has pushed for 80 million starter units of the iPhone and around 15 million iWatch units.
