    Can anyone please confirm whether or not Yosemite's Messages App works with iOS 7?

    I have an iPhone 4 and can't update to iOS 8.

    I'm simply hoping it retains the ability to text other iPhone users - I realize that it won't allow for the extended SMS functionality.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I just bought a brand new rMBP - I just don't wish to lose functionality with my iPhone 4.

    As iOS 8 hadn't been released yet, I'm worried about the beta v. the current public release.

    Uh, iOS 8 is out... Could you clarify what you were asking in the OP? I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to figure out.

    I just need to know if Yosemite requires iOS 8 or is compatible with iOS 7?

    In Mavericks, with iOS 7 and the Message App, I can send and receive texts on my laptop, restricted to iPhones.

    I would like to know if that functionality is retained with Yosemite, or if Yosemite requires iOS 8.

    I have an iPhone 4 which can not be updated to iOS 8.
