Apple releases OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Apple’s latest desktop operating system has officially hit the streets on 2015-09-30

Apple released the latest version of their desktop operating system OS X 10.11, Code named El Capitán, to the public Wednesday afternoon, 2015-09-30. This latest iteration of OS X features enhancements to Safari and Spotlight, as well as bring optimization and performance enhancements to the platform.

El Capitán

This latest round of system wide updates includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Metal is perhaps the largest improvement to El Capitán. It provides superior performance improvements to games and other graphic intensive applications, compared to previous versions of OS X.
  • Safari supports pinned tabs, playing web video via AirPlay and muting of audio on specific web tabs, all via the Smart Search field. Users can also search for specific locations in Maps and then push navigation to their iPhone.
  • Mail has been reimagined to allow users to use it full screen, much like its iOS-based cousin. It also includes swipe-based gestures for marking items as read or to delete them. You can also quickly add Contact or Calendar based events to their respective apps based on a message’s content.
  • Notes now supports check lists, attaching both video and stills, as well as URL and map locations. The app is now a true system component, as users can, for example, share web pages from Safari, as a Note to anyone with an Apple ID.
  • Spotlight has been enhanced to support searching via natural language. You can get information on weather conditions, stock performance, public transit schedules, etc. just by asking a natural language-based question.
  • Photos can now make use of third-party extensions and plug-ins, giving you more advanced control over retouching of your pictures. You also get more advanced options for sorting albums as well as tagging people and places
  • Other system-wide features include a Split View fullscreen mode, a more streamlined Mission Control, and a series of upgrades to Chinese and Japanese language support, such as new fonts and better keyboard and trackpad input.

El Capitán is a free update and is available now to all Macs and users currently running Yosemite via the Mac App Store desktop app. Those Mac users running Yosemite who wish to wait on updating to OS X 10.11 can also obtain an update to Safari 9, though it doesn’t have support for pinned tabs.

Will you be updating your Mac to El Capitán? Will you wait until OS X 10.11.1 is released, instead? I’ve got a review of El Cap that I’m working on and hope to have up in the next few days.
