Idag släpps den kostnadsfria uppdateringen av OS X. OS X 10.11 El Capitan innehåller bland annat nyheter som Split View, mer överskådlig Mission Control, förbättrad Mail, nya kraftfulla Anteckningar samt andra förbättringar i Safari, Bilder, Kartor och inte minst bättre prestanda.
Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.
“El Capitan refines the Mac experience and improves performance in a lot of little ways that make a very big difference. Feedback from our OS X beta program has been incredibly positive and we think customers are going to love their Macs even more with El Capitan.”

iMore – A smarter, smoother, more sophisticated experience to the Mac
Based on both popular sentiment and the narrative from the last year, it’s clear that following a series of redesigns and re-architectures, everyone needed a moment to settle and breathe again. A ”Snow Leopard moment”. El Cap gives us that, but like Snow Leopard is also gives us much more.
Ars Technica – Apple brings refinement
Really, this is the first time in several years that iOS and OS X have felt like they’ve gotten (and needed) the same amount of attention from Apple—both get to spend a release in the slow lane as Apple puts its marketing muscle behind newer platforms like the Apple Watch and the new Apple TV.
MacStories – OS X 10.11 El Capitan
El Capitan marks an end to Apple’s relentless march forward, opting instead for a calm retrospective on the applications and underlying frameworks which have been the keystones of the operating system for years.
The Verge – Back to the Mac, again
Virtually everybody with Yosemite will (and should) update. Virtually nobody will feel that their Mac experience has fundamentally changed, instead we’ll just see it get slightly nicer.
CNET – A swifter, more streamlined take on OS X
If you’re wedded to the Apple ecosystem, your entire universe will become just a little more cohesive. El Capitan is more evolution than revolution, but it’s the next step in Apple’s relentless march towards efficiency, chock full of improvements along the way.
Yahoo – Speed and Small Touchups, Free of Charge
If you’re in a hurry, here’s the bottom line: Download and install El Capitan. There’s zero reason not to. Everything runs just as it did before. I couldn’t find a single app that didn’t run perfectly after the installation.
The Wall Street Journal – A Free Tune-Up for Your Mac
For the first time, I’ve even started to organize apps on virtual desktops, thanks to features that finally make Apple’s Spaces easier to use. In Mission Control, you can drag a window to the top of the screen to create a new desktop space. My email and calendar now have a permanent virtual home immediately to the right of my main desktop.
Engadget – A modest update, with some welcome changes
Apple’s newest browser, Safari 9, brings a few useful features, some more important than others. Starting with the bigger stuff, Safari adds pinned sites. If you’ve used a similar feature in other browsers like Chrome, the concept here should seem familiar: When you pin a tab, it shrinks down; it’s always open, with no ”X” button allowing you to close it.
The Next Web – The rock-solid update Yosemite (and iOS) needed
It’s part of a revamped Window Management system, and lets you easily split your screen between two apps. A simple long-press on the green maximize icon in an app places it as half of your screen.
The Guardian – Bringing even older Macs up to speed
The latest version of Apple’s laptop and desktop operating system OS X 10.11 El Capitan will genuinely speed up your computer, particularly if you’ve got an older Mac.
Slash Gear – OS X El Capitan Review
Many of the core apps have had a revamp. Notes now supports sketches and easy creation of checklists; if you have an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, or end up buying an iPad Pro later this year, you’ll be able to access the pressure-sensitive sketches created on those devices from your Mac, too.
