    So I was installing iOS 8 on my iPhone and went to back up my phone on my MBP running Mavericks and I had an OS update that needed to be installed. It was 10.9.4. I updated it and immediately after A window popped up saying OS X 10.10 Ready To Install and my computer would restart in 30 seconds. It resorted.... And I now have Yosemite!??? I am NOT a developer and I did not DL a developer preview version of it. I am so confused. And now a few minutes ago, the app store said I had an update to install... "OS X 10.10 Update 1"

    Did I somehow get Yosemite by mistake? LOL Anyone else have this happen to them?

    Another update?!

    What is going on? LOL Can some one please explain this to me?

    Looks like when I installed the update to Mavericks "10.9.4" I got Yosemite instead.

    What's your build number in Apple | About This Mac | System Report | Software

    It should be 14axxxx? (where xxxx is what you should fill in). Just curious.

    I really find it hard to believe. Maybe someone else installed it while you were away.
    Yosemite will not download and/or install automatically. It may also require you to enter the Admin password to approve the installation.

    I wonder if you downloaded it in the past and while sitting on your Launchpad someone else may have started the installation. :eek:

    Check the build version and you'll know whether the above may have happened or not.

    My guess is this was a fake post judging by the fact he never responded to my build number request 8 days ago.

    Checked his other posts, and OP sounds young, and inexperienced so he probably downloaded Yosemite by mistake.
