Restart your computer and hold down the Option/Alt key to get a choice of which OS you want to start up with. After choosing your Mac OS, you'll have to go to your system preferences and click on the Startup Disk icon. After that select the Mac OS icon. Your computer should now startup in Mac OS as the default.

And remember that iOS is the software that iPhones and iPads run, while OS X is the operating system that Mac computers run.
