I don't agree with all the complaints about Apple's rapid big updates of both OS X and iOS. I think there is a purpose with it. It's because Apple has a plan to merge the features in iOS with OS X. We will of course still have two different operating systems, but they will have a seamless experience, share features with each other. They have already added a lot of such features and we will see even more of those this year. After that Apple will finally settle down a bit again and working on get rid of all the bugs and make both iOS and OS X perfectly stable again.
They are simply preparing for new exciting products, devices to come.

We don’t need major OS releases every year. We don’t need each OS release to have a huge list of new features. We need our computers, phones, and tablets to work well first so we can enjoy new features released at a healthy, gradual, sustainable pace.
So I don't agree with what Marco writes above. Again, Apple has a purpose with these updates. A plan.

But in avoiding the problems of stagnation and hubris, it feels like Apple has run into a different problem: nothing ever feels settled and stable. If the pattern Apple has established the last two years holds, by the time the loose screws get tightened in iOS 8 and OS X 10.10, we’ll be getting developer betas of iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 at WWDC.
Again, Apple will settle down when all the features are in place to merge the experiences together so we can have the best experience possible. We will see coming exciting products that will benefit of these new versions of the operating systems.
