El Capitan Features And Highlights: Everything You Need To Know

By on

The new OS X El Capitan from Apple may have some issues and problems that you may encounter, but overall there are some other amazing features that you can take from it. We take a look at some of the features of the Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, which is now available to download for OS X users, and why you should upgrade. While their new operating system made some ?subtle and low-level? changes, your laptop or desktop should run better and smoother for a longer time, according to Gizmag.

Window-snapping

One feature that is new to the OS X El Capitan, and also found in the recent version of Windows, is the window-snapping feature, which allows you to ?snap open apps to one side of the display or the other.? Users who may call themselves as a multi-tasker may like this new feature. ?It?s going to please users who want as much precision as possible in their screen layouts,? shared by Gizmag.

Spotlight search

The upgraded Spotlight now takes more natural languages when you search which ?adds to the friendliness of OS X.? The Spotlight window can also be moved around now compared to the previous version.

Safari browsing improvements

It?s safe to say that Safari has made a lot of improvement over the last few years. The web browser is a lot faster and we can see that Apple is also building a new ?user-facing? feature to make Safari more captivating, according to Extremetech. The web browser has also added AirPlay streaming, ?Press the AirPlay button on videos, and it will pop up immediately on the big screen,? shared by Extremetech. Apple has also added a feature that lets your frequently-used tabs pin to the tab bar. Although other browsers have implemented it before, Apple should greatly benefit from making the addition.

OS X El Capitan is an essential improvement, but it?s really up to the users whether they want to take advantage of the new features.
