I must say it was an awesome Keynote as Apple revealed new iOS 9 for iPhone, iPad and iPods as well as new OS for Apple Watch dubbed Watch OS2 along with a brand new version of MAC OS X named ‘OS X El Capitan’. It is based on Mac OS X Yosemite.
OS X EI Capitan does not adds many new feature but it is a refinement of Yosemite features. There are refinements mainly in two areas, Performance and Design. OS X EI Capitan is available as a developer beta and its public beta will come soon by this summer. Lets’ have a close look at what all new stuffs we gonna get with this new Apple OS X El Capitan.
Coming to performance of El Capitan, the system is optimized enough to offer open files or apps much faster than ever before.
