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 release of OS X Yosemite, El Capitan introduces enhancements to window management, built-in apps, and Spotlight search, and makes everyday activities faster and more responsive. Metal, Apple’s breakthrough graphics technology, is integrated into El Capitan, delivering systemwide 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.”
