Any advantage in the order of upgrading?

Norm Harris
Assuming doing both close to the same time, are there any advantages in one approach vs other…..

For iOS device and OS:
Upgrade to iOS 8 first and then move to iPhone 6 (from 5) or just move to iOS 8 when purchase iPhone 6?

For OS X device and OS:
Upgrade to Yosemite first and then move to new Mac or just move to Yosemite when purchase new Mac? Note, I will still have a second Mac that I will upgrade to Yosemite from Mavericks.

Thanks for any tips.

Why not keep you old Mac on MAVERICS? And the new one on YOSEMITE…
At least for a while, because YOSEMITE can be a pain when upgrading. Some persons have no problem, some have some problems, and some have major problems. My own experiene.

Why involve any extra steps? If you're going to new devices, move to
the newer OS with the new device.

Why? There is no reason to run 10.9 over 10.10, and the only reason to run 10.9 over 10.8 is if you have some legacy System 7 apps (like MT Newswatcher) that rely on APIs that have been deprecated since Tiger or Lion.

I’m up to 23 Yosemite installs. The only account with any issues is my own which seems to have some serious problem (which is specific to my account and follows me from machine to machine) with Internet Accounts. No machines have any issues whatsoever.

And, while it was regarded as pretty good evidence of criminality to be
living in a slum, for some reason owning a whole street of them merely
got you invited to the very best social occasions.
