Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan release date and new features

Karen Haslam | Aug. 20, 2015
If you are already convinced you want to run El Capitan and are wondering just how quickly you can get you hands on it you will be glad to hear that you won’t be waiting for long - in fact if you aren't risk averse you can get it now.

Swift in OS X 10.11

One final thing to mention, Apple's said to be updating its programming language that it introduced at WWDC in 2014. Swift is apparently going to reach "Application Binary Interface (ABI) stability," and its code libraries will therefore be pre-installed within the new iOS and Mac operating systems. This means Swift applications will require less space and consume less data - especially useful if downloaded over a cellular connection.

Apple will apparently not be shipping Swift versions of its own applications this year though, but the company will be converting its own apps to Swift in 2016 we hear.

We'll keep adding to this article as we here more about what to expect in OS X 10.11. Come back again soon.
