Apple yesterday released OS X 10.11 El Capitan, the newest Mac operating system available for free to all Mac users via the Mac App Store.
Building on the features introduced in OS X Yosemite (as the name suggests), OS X El Capitan focuses on refining the user experience and improving performance.
Experience enhancements make the things you do most with your Mac simpler and smarter. The new Split View makes working in multiple at the same time easier, allowing you to run two full-screen apps side by side automatically. The built in search facility Spotlight is improved, now understanding your natural language and delivering results from the weather to sports updates. Several new app features have also been introduced with improvements to Safari, Mail, Notes, Maps and Photos.
Performance improvements under the hood make your Mac snappier in all kinds of everyday tasks from launching apps, opening PDFs to accessing your email. And Metal, the new graphics core technology speeds system-level graphics rendering by up to 50 per cent boosting the experience of games and apps.
Upgrading to OS X El Capitan is free and easy. If your Mac is running OS X Yosemite you can upgrade directly via the Mac App Store.
