OS X El Capitan first look!

by birtanpublished on September 19, 2020

Hey everyone this is Renee from buy more and right now we're gonna take a quick look at oh s ten ten point eleven El Capitan OS 10 El Capitan is intended to be a smarter and more refined experience for your Mac OS 10 10.11 technically it's called El Capitan because El

Capitan is a granite monolith inside Yosemite so the naming convention is sort of like when we went from Leopard to Snow Leopard or lion to mountain lion some of the new features include split view they previously had full-screen

Mode but they didn't always let you take best advantage of a large display or multitasking so now you're gonna have two apps side by side I like it I actually wrote my first look using split view there's a new Mission Control that

Flattens things out and respects the spatial placement of your apps so it makes things easier to find and it even makes it easier if I just want to drag an app to a new desktop to full screen or to the new split view mode you can

Even shake your cursor now to find it which sounds silly but it's actually really helpful spotlight has gotten a lot more intelligent it's sort of like Syria doesn't talk to you yet but it does have more data in it like weather

And stocks and sports and you can enter natural language questions like show me documents about El Capitan I worked on last week or show me email ignored from Kevin and it'll find all of those things and it works too in spotlight in Safari

And in mail you can even reposition and resize spotlight now notes app has been totally redone you can now drag in websites audio messages pictures documents and make checklists so you can really collect everything about a

Project in one place you can even send stuff directly to notes to a new note or an existing note from a bevy of other applications Safari has gotten some really cool new features now if an audio source is playing and you don't know

Where it is and you just want it to shut up you can go to the new audio icon and click it to turn all sound off or click and hold and you can just choose selectively which tabs you want to mute you can also pin tabs now so there's if

There are sites like I'm or I wanna make you Twitter and Facebook you can keep those in the sidebar and small icon form and they'll always be ready for you to reference you can also airplay video now just the video you no longer have to

Share your entire screen like some kind of an is a new web inspector as well for people who do development mail in full screen mode now gets the sort of multitasking drafts the way that iOS has

Had them and it also gets gestures so you can swipe to either delete or to mark a messages on red and those swipes exist in messages and notes and a bunch of other apps as well Maps has gotten transit directions it's in a lot of

Cities in China only a few cities outside China but Apple is going to be expanding that there's a special map view just for transit and you get directions that combine walking so if your bus stop is away from your train

Station it'll show you how to get there as well photos will be getting some great enhancements there's new editing extensions which will like the photo extensions in iOS and they allow developers to make filters and special

Effects that you can use right in the Photos app there's also better Organization for photos faces has been optimized and there's a lot of great stuff especially still not open an external editor but that's got to come

Eventually right for the performance stuff Apple is bought metal they're writing to the metal framework from iOS to the Mac and they're sort of making it encapsulate both OpenGL the open graphics language and OpenCL the open

Computing language and they're putting core graphics and core animation two of their major frameworks right on top of it that should lead to significant performance enhancements not just for games but also for pro apps like things

Made by Adobe or Final Cut for security they're doing a lot more to protect average users from malware they're basically sealing off the root partitions making a trusted chain the way they did in iOS they're also hoping

To make security better in connections so they're using TLS 1.2 as sort of the minimum standard and pushing people to go even beyond that for privacy instead of doing everything on the server the way Facebook or Google might apples

Doing the internet stuff on the server but then bringing that down and keeping your data on the device it may seem like a subtle difference but if you care about privacy as something important and it's great that we have the choice for

Typography we're getting a new system font yes they just switched from lucida grande' to Helvetica but now they're switching to San Francisco which is an Apple made font and it looks beautiful there's a lot of there's lot of thought

And and care put into it and the same thing for Chinese there's a new system font there too called ping Fong and a new predictive input method for Japanese for developers there's new API swith force touch trackpad and for the taptic

Engine has also things like collection views and text kit and stack views that should make even better apps for us eventually now OS 10 El Capitan is available in developer preview right now they'll be a

Public beta in July and it's going to be shipping to everyone for free this fall I've been trying it out for about a week I like it a lot so far it really is more of a refinement more of a polish of Yosemite and the good news is any Mac

That can run Yosemite can run El Capitan and that was OS 10 El Capitan for lots more information including our first look our FAQ and more keep it locked to iMore com
