As we all where hoping, Apple’s yearly update for the desktop and mobile operating systems are focussed on refinements instead of big new features.
Building on last year’s release of OS X Yosemite, El Capitan introduces enhancements to window management, built-in apps and Spotlight search. These improvements should make everyday activities faster and more responsive. Apple’s new graphics technology, Metal, which was introduced in iOS 8 is now also integrated into El Capitan, delivering system-wide performance gains and enabling games and pro apps to tap into the full power of Mac graphics processors.
iOS 9, apart from new stability and battery saving measures also brings brand new features such as a Siri becoming much more intelligent and refined and transit maps. Newsstand gets changed into a brand new News app, bringing curated stories refined for your taste in a new gorgeous interface. Biggest changes come to the latest iPads, as iOS 9 brings true multitasking with Split View and even picture in picture.
WatchOS 2 brings us native apps, new watch faces, the ability to watch video and a new Nightstand Mode. Biggest updates there are the creation of anActivation Lock, which lets users secure their Apple Watch with their Apple ID, preventing another user from wiping or activating the device if it is lost or stolen.
All updates will be coming this fall, with an AppleTV software update also being in the works to include Apple Music.
