Add something to cart :)
OS X El Capitan gives you simpler, smarter ways to do the things you do most with your Mac. Like working in multiple apps at the same time using Split View. Searching for information with an even more helpful Spotlight. Keeping your favorite websites handy with Pinned Sites. Managing your email with full-screen view and swipe gestures. And turning notes into useful checklists. Improvements under the hood make your Mac snappier and more efficient for all kinds of everyday tasks ?в‚¬вЂќ from opening PDFs to loading your email. And with Metal for Mac, you get faster and more fluid graphics performance in games and high-performance apps.
Give two apps your undivided attention.
Running lots of apps at the same time is one of the great things about using a Mac. Focusing on just one app in full-screen view is another. With Split View, you get the best of both. It automatically fills your screen with the two apps you choose. So you can make dinner plans with a friend in Messages while finding the restaurant in Maps. Or work on a document in Pages while doing your research in Safari. All without the distraction of your other open apps, and without having to manually resize and drag windows around. And your desktop is always just a swipe away, so it?в‚¬в„ўs easy to get back to everything else you were doing.
You?в‚¬в„ўve never been so good at space management.
A streamlined Mission Control makes it easier to see and organize everything you have open on your Mac. With a single swipe, all the windows on your desktop arrange themselves in a single layer, with nothing stacked or hidden. Mission Control places your windows in the same relative location, so you can spot the one you?в‚¬в„ўre looking for more quickly. And when you have lots of windows competing for screen space, it?в‚¬в„ўs even easier to make more room for them. Just drag any window to the top of your screen and drop it into a new desktop space. It?в‚¬в„ўs never been this easy to spread out your work.
Call out your cursor.
Lost your cursor on your crowded desktop? Just shake your finger back and forth on the trackpad or give your mouse a shake, and the pointer gets bigger so it?в‚¬в„ўs easy to spot.
Even more versatile. And helpful.
Spotlight gets even smarter in El Capitan, delivering results for weather, sports, stocks, web video, and transit information. And now you can ask Spotlight to find a file using natural language ?в‚¬вЂќ so when you?в‚¬в„ўre looking for the presentation you created last Friday, just type ?в‚¬?presentation I made on Friday.?в‚¬?1 Spotlight is also more flexible: You can resize its window to see more results and move it anywhere on your desktop.
Look what just landed in your inbox.
Improved full-screen support and swipe gestures in Mail let you make quick work of your correspondence. OS X also helps you manage your calendar and keep your contacts up to date, right from your inbox.
Collect more than just your thoughts.
The powerful new Notes app is more than a great way to jot down a quick thought and keep track of it for later. Now you can turn a list into a checklist in a snap. Or easily add a photo, video, web link, or map location to a note. And thanks to iCloud, all your notes and everything in them are kept up to date across all your devices. So you can create a note on your Mac and look at it on your iPhone when you?в‚¬в„ўre out and about.
More things to do, places to go, and people to see.
Give your photos a more personal touch with third-party editing tools. And with enhanced organization capabilities, support for the new Live Photos format, and faster performance, the Photos app gets even better.
The smartest way to surf. With new tools built in.
With OS X El Capitan, the best browser for your Mac brings new tools for better surfing. Now Safari lets you keep favorite websites open and accessible with Pinned Sites. You can quickly mute audio without hunting for the tab it?в‚¬в„ўs coming from. And use AirPlay to stream video from a web page to your HDTV.
Now arriving. Public transit info.
If you get around by train or bus, you can now get around more easily in select cities around the world thanks to Maps. You?в‚¬в„ўll find everything you need to go from point A to point B, including built-in public transportation maps, directions, and schedules.
A distinctly modern take on type.
OS X El Capitan introduces new fonts that look crisp and beautiful on your Mac and in your documents ?в‚¬вЂќ a modern, space-efficient system font called San Francisco, a new Chinese font called PingFang with thousands of redesigned characters and six new line weights, and four new Japanese fonts that offer even more choices for everything from presentations to email.
