Apple OS X El Capitan

The latest Apple operating system, OS X El Capitan, is available today. I’ve been using a pre-release version for a few weeks and it seems very solid – I've been running it on a mid-2011 MacBook Air and a 2012 Mac Mini.

Here are a few of the interesting features that may convince you to upgrade:

  • Better video and image performance, faster app switching
  • Mission Control update: easier to use, quicker to move apps between “desktops”
  • Spotlight improvements: broader searches, more like Microsoft Cortana
  • Split view: a quick way to arrange two apps, side-by-sidie
  • Improved Notes: notes syncs to all your devices via iCloud and you can use it for images, links, videos, to-do lists, etc.
  • “Photos” improvements: “live” photos from iPhone 6S can play.
  • Minor Safari upgrades: you can mute tabs and pin tabs
  • Some “Mail” app enhancements: gesture support

For more information, head over to later today.
