Apple has announced their next release of OS X, taking over from last year’s OS X Yosemite, the new OS dubbed OS X El Capitan, which is said to be focused on performance and speed.
To kick things off Craig Federighi shown off some of the basic new additions of the new OS, which includes a ton of new gestures that allows the user to complete tasks quickly, such as swiping to the left to ignore a message.
More interesting however is the next two, pinned sites and Spotlight.
With Pinned Sites users can now pin a site to a tab on Safari, keeping tabs that users want to keep up with throughout the whole day in a smaller bar, allowing you to keep other tabs in Safari without tacking up too much space.
With Spotlight you can also search for more information like sports scores, weather and even specific searches like documents you wrote last week.
Mail also has a new enhanced full-screen view that allows for new tabs in the New Message window.
Apple has also finally added multi-window management, allowing you to simply drag a window to the side in order to create a split-view.
There’s also a new Spaces Bar that allows for better management of multiple desktops.
In terms of performance, Apple also states that El Capitan is up to 1.4x faster when launching an app, up to 2x faster when switching apps, up to 2x faster when displaying the first Mail messages and up to 4x faster when opening a PDF in Preview.
And not only that, Apple is also coming to the Mac allowing for better detail in games and other apps, with faster performance, granting apps near-direct access to the GPU.
Developers can get a version of the OS from today, with a public beta releasing in July, and then a full free upgrade in Fall.
