OS X 10.11 El Capitan Final Releasing On September 30th
OS X 10.11 El Capitan release date falls on the 30th of September, according to a slide shown off at Apple's iPhone 6s event today.
According to Apple, OS X 10.11 El Capitan will be available for consumers on the 30th of September. If you've been waiting anxiously for Apple's latest desktop OS to arrive on your Mac, then we advise you to save that aforementioned date to your calendar right away.
With OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Apple is building on top of the strong foundations of OS X Yosemite, which was released last year, and is focussing mainly on the power user niche in the market. El Capitan visual looks similar to Yosemite from last year, but it's the bells and whistles under the hood that make up for a big update for every Mac user out there. For instance, Apple is now (finally) bringing window snapping to its desktop OS, just like its counterpart on the other side of the fence, Windows. Apart from that, Apple is bringing a load of performance tweaks to the roster.
Just like Yosemite and Mavericks before it, El Capitan will be an absolutely free download for the Mac. And downloading the new OS for your Mac will be a simple case of launching the Mac App Store and grabbing the update from there. In typical fashion, we will bring to our readers complete guides on how to update to El Capitan, or even do a clean install from scratch, if that's the route you're willing to take. A clean installation is the best way to go, however. But we'll leave that call for you to ponder upon.
OS X 10.11 El Capitan has been in beta stages since its initial announcement at WWDC 2015 in June, and in that time period, Apple has made a number of changes in its pre-release builds, making the overall OS as smooth and bug free as possible.
OS X 10.11 El Capitan is supported on a wide range of Macs, and everyone can reap the benefits of it if they so desire. And since it's a more advanced OS than before, which also brings in a bunch of new feature to the fore, we highly recommend every user to make the jump to pump in more life to their Mac.
