Apple Releases Mac OS 10.11 'El Capitan'

Episode 1225

Mac OS X El Capitan

Apple has released Mac OS 10.11 called "El Capitan." Leo says this is a pretty safe install, as it's been in public beta for quite some time already. But if you need your computer for work and depend on it for important things, Leo still advises waiting. Apple users generally like to update sooner than Windows users, so this can be problematic if an application doesn't work as it should on the new operating system. A good rule of thumb is to wait until the second update to the new operating system before installing it.

The Surface Pro 3 is good, and the Surface Pro 4, which should be out soon, will be even better.

It begins recording when you enter camera mode and when you snap it, it saves a second and a half of video on either side of the shutter press with it. Leo says it's unknown how widely Live Photos will be supported, but Facebook says it will be built into the iOS app.

The new iPad Pro, however, proves that Apple's tablet has moved from a content consumption device to a bonafide productivity tool.
