OS X 10.11 El Capitan hits tomorrow.
That’s the official word from Apple via a press release issued on Tuesday.
The new operating system will become available tomorrow (September 30th) on the Mac App Store as a free update. The information has been available since Apple’s September 9th event, which included the Wednesday release date as an easter egg during the new iPhone’s 3D Touch demo.
Compared to OS X Yosemite, El Capitan is more of a minor update that focuses on under-the-hood improvements versus new end-user features and design changes. However, the operating system still does include new features such as a split-screen apps mode, new search features in Spotlight, tweaks to Safari, gestures in the Mail app, transit directions in Maps, and a revamped Notes app to match the updated app on iOS.
Apple has not announced what time El Capitan will hit the App Store, but you can probably get it if you obsessively refresh the App Store application throughout the day.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
