Adobe and Apple have worked closely together to test Adobe Creative Cloud applications for reliability, performance, and user experience when installed on Intel-based systems running Mac OS X Yosemite (version 10.10). The latest versions of all Adobe CC products are compatible. In addition to the current Photoshop CC release (2014.2), the Photoshop team has also tested Photoshop CC 2014 (2014.2), Photoshop CC (14.2.1), and CS6 (13.0.6; 13.1.2) for compatibility.

As with any new release of an operating system, unexpected issues could arise that were not discovered during testing. If you encounter any issues, report them using the bug reporting form.

Do any of the Adobe Creative Cloud applications require updates to be compatible with Mac OS X Yosemite?

No.

Is Adobe aware of any issues, bugs, or odd user experiences when using CC or Acrobat products with Mac OS X Yosemite?

Apple has improved security by introducing their new "V2 code signing" (it is a way to guarantee that the application came from the developer and has not been altered, infected with a virus, or damaged in any way). While Adobe is signing future updates with V2, some applications that are signed with the older V1 code signing may issue a warning: "<Adobe application> can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed." Learn more.
