Apple unveils OS X El Capitan

Apple has just announced OS X (10.11) El Capitan at its WWDC conference in San Francisco with improvements in Performance and new features like split screen. El Capitan is actually a famous mountain in Yosemite National Park. The newer version of Mac OS retains the same design philosophy but with some improvements and why not? OS X Yosemite looked stunning and now its even better with more gesture control making it one step closer to the iOS.

When you are presented with the desktop screen few shakes will make your cursor grow bigger and it will help you find the cursor too incase you lost it. You can now swipe two fingers across the trackpad to delete a message or a mail and mark them as unread. Safari is updated too with pinned sites where you can pin your favorite site and it will stay on the main bar and once you click on it, it will load the page faster.

Safari now lets users see which tabs are playing music and you can mute the tabs with music with just one gesture or a click. There are also some improvements to the Mission Control and fullscreen apps. Split Screen has now been introduced in the Mac OS which was much needed and the apps are resizable. Coming to the performance, apps now launch 1.4 times faster in El Capitan according to Federighi.

Apple is now introducing Metal in Mac OS which will result in up to "ten times" better 3D gaming experience along with exceptional 3D performance in power hungry apps. El Capitan is available today to developers with public beta coming in July. It will be a free upgrade with General availability expected this fall.
