Apple Announces OS X El Capitan
Monday, June 8th, 2015
Posted by: Staff

Apple today announced OS X El Capitan, a new version of OS X that refines the Mac experience and improves system performance. Building on last year's landmark release of OS X Yosemite, El Capitan introduces enhancements to window management, built-in apps and Spotlight search, and makes everyday activities - from launching apps to accessing email - faster and more responsive. Metal, Apple's breakthrough graphics technology, is integrated into El Capitan, delivering system-wide performance gains and enabling games and pro apps to tap into the full power of Mac graphics processors.

"OS X delivers unparalleled integration between Mac hardware, iOS devices, apps and online services, and has helped Mac sales outpace the PC industry every year for the last decade," said Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering. "Customers loved last year's landmark OS X Yosemite release and made it the fastest-adopted PC operating system ever. With El Capitan, we're further refining the Mac experience with enhancements to window management, Spotlight and built-in apps, and improving performance so everyday activities - from launching apps to accessing email - are faster and more responsive."

The developer preview of OS X El Capitan is available to Mac Developer Program members starting today. Mac users can participate in the El Capitan Beta Program in July and download the final version for free from the Mac App Store this fall. Customers interested in signing up for the public beta can visit here for more details. Features are subject to change. Some features may not be available in all regions or all languages.

Time will tell, but it doesn't sound like much of an upgrade on the surface. Not a big fan of the name either, but that is minor.

I was really hoping for it to be called OS X Bridalveil Fall. Wink

I was thinking the next release of OS X would include Siri. Especially seeing that Microsoft is including Cortana in W10.

No Siri, but Spotlight looks to be much improved. Also liking the Notes, Safari and Mission Control improvements.
