OS X El Capitan was available as Beta version for developers. However, now this is available for all the OS X users. In simple words, this is another great invention of Apple because they have included so many helpful features, what will make you more productive. If you think El Capitan is just a waste of time, you are wrong. Here are top 5 new features of El Capitan that make this OS better.
Split view & Mission Control
This is one of the best features of El Capitan that make it even better. Previously, OS X had both of the features i.e. Split View and Mission Control. However, now these two things have integrated into each other. The result is pretty awesome and very handy. Previously, you had to drag and drop the window of any app or anything to the left or right to get the split view. However, now you can do the same throughout any second or third window. In El Capitan, users would get all the secondary windows on the primary desktop so that they can put any window to any desktop.
Spotlight is a significant feature of Mac. Apple has this feature in their OS since a long time now. However, in Mavericks, they revamped it totally with tons of new features and options. Now, in El Capitan, the Spotlight search has got many other changes and new features. It has become more useful with weather forecast, stock info, sports scores and video player. For instance, if you search for “Weather in LA”, you will get today’s weather report along with next 7 days’. If your favorite team has a match today, you can just search for “team A vs team B” and it will display the current score [team A and team B should be replaced with the actual team names]. Just like the Google Now or native Google search.
OS X has a native Mail app that supports various email service providers. However, in terms of feature, Apples Mail app was lagging behind other third party client. But, now the scenario is going to change since Apple has included many handy features in this app. Now, use can get contact information as well as calendar events automatically in the Mail app. That will let them decide anything carefully. On the other hand, some new iOS gestures have been included. You can swipe from left to right and vice versa to delete or archive any mail quickly.
