Apple has released the latest update to its Mac operating system. OS X 10.11 El Capitan is available as a free download in the Mac App Store.
As Nate Ralph says in his review , El Capitan is more evolution than revolution, but it's the next step in Apple's relentless march toward efficiency, chock full of improvements along the way. And it'll run on just about every Mac purchased in the last few years: if your Mac can run Mavericks , you're all set.
