6 reasons you should get Apple’s OS X El Capitan update.

Our review of El Capitan and our hands-on with Safari 9 in El Capitan takes a deep dive with key new features in Apple’s browser that are quite useful.

The updated operating system allows for faster app launching and graphics, split-screen viewing and the ability to manage notes on all Apple devices via iCloud, among other features, according to the company.For those Mac users feeling a little left out in all the new iPhone and iOS update madness of recent weeks, rejoice; the next version of OS X is nearly here. OS X El Capitan – the latest version of the operating system for Apple’s Mac line-up of laptops becomes available to download from September 30 in the UK.

Overall, while El Capitan, may be a win for the tech giant, it won’t be enough to move the needle on Apple’s stock, said tech investor Eric Schiffer, CEO of Patriarch Equity, in an interview with CNBC. “But I do think it will help people to retain their Macs,” he said. “It will make sure that they continue to enjoy the experience, which overall long term is good for Apple, but I don’t think you’re going to see it immediately in the stock price.” Microsoft recently released its new Windows 10 operating system to some acclaim, but it’s not enough to convince Apple users to switch to computers running Windows, according to Schiffer. “I think that Microsoft has done a tremendous job, a fantastic job of staying relevant. Apple said at the first announcement back in June that the focus for El Capitan was on “experience and performance” and, with that in mind, these are some of the key reasons to consider upgrading. One of those tiny details that can make all the difference, El Capitan introduces a new cursor feature that sees the pointer enlarge when you wiggle on the touchpad, making it much easier to find when you first wake the computer.

Make sure your Time Machine is up to date, clone your hard drive to an external hard drive, save your data to your favorite online file storage service. Another clever edition is an audio finding tool, that kicks in when apparently random audio begins to play in one of the many tabs you have open (we’ve all been there). A real screen tidier, a new three-finger gesture on the trackpad instantly pulls all your windows into a neat single screen – perfectly laid out like Tetris pieces. This update also packs a lot of small and big features, such as split view for full screen apps, an improved Mission Control, a more powerful Spotlight, Mail improvements, rich-text notes, new editing extensions for Photos, pinned tabs in Safari, public transit in Maps and more.

An extension of the screen organising that Mission Control brings, Split Screen is much like the feature we’ve just seen Apple announce for the iPad Pro – enabling users to multi-task between two apps by splitting the screen in two. In a nut shell, apps will open quicker, documents load faster, and thanks to their Metal API visuals are now sharper in editing apps as well as games.
