This is the final version of the OS X series. The operating systems after El Capitan are no more called OS X. As compared to its predecessor, El Capitan gained more fame and scored almost 4.5 out of 5 in reviews.

The first-ever beta version of macOS El Capitan was released on June 8, 2015 in WWDC which was only for developers. And the public beta was released on July 9, 2015. After multiple beta versions were released, on September 30, 2015 which is almost four years, the final version was released for the users on Mac App Store.

A total of seven different versions of El Capitan was released as an update. And the last update (build 15G22010) was released on July 9, 2018 which was for mainly security. The last update also solved the issues that prevented the setting from being saved into account with parental controls enabled. Other issues with printers and speakers were also solved.

macOS El Capitan is a Unix based OS developed by Apple. It was developed to be the successor of Yosemite and later was succeeded by macOS 10.12 Sierra.

Apple ended the support for El Capitan in September 2018. Apple has highly focused on performance, stability, and security. Other features like spilt screens, adjustment to mission control, and an improved Spotlight.

Key features

Here are some key features of macOS El Capitan that might grab your attention. We have not provided all the features, as it can get boring for the users.

iPhoto– the iPhoto has been reorganized and the same as the Yosemite interface is used. The app organizes your albums according to name, location, and date. It also gives you the option of editing like adding filters, retouching… Now, it is also possible to use third-party extensions from the Mac App Store.

Enhanced security– Apple has brought out two-factor authentication for your Apple ID and devices running macOS El Capitan.

User-friendly interface– old cursor is replaced with a new one. As it was hard for the users to locate the small cursor, so a larger cursor is used for large screens. A Beachball is used to indicate loading on OS.

New emojis– a total of 150 emojis are added.

New font– El Capitan has a refined interface and a new system font, San Francisco. Old Helvetica is now replaced with new San Francisco.

Better management– Mission Control is a window management feature. By enabling it, all the windows in your Mac will appear on your screen. All the windows will be organized into different spaces.

Split view– In this version of macOS, Apple has highly focused on two things user experience and performance. The Split view allows users to run two applications simultaneously on a full screen. This is quite helpful, as you can be focused on two apps without being distracted by the rest of the desktop. Other than split-view another change in interface is made which is known as Mission Control.

Quick drag and drop– By dragging icons from one window others will provide you features like copying, moving, or creating any shortcuts of files.

Advanced Spotlight– With advanced Spotlight search, you can find the exact results you want. The Spotlight search has been expanded and now it doesn’t fetch results from your systems drivers but also surfs the internet to find the results related from Wikipedia, iTunes, YouTube, weathers, mails, and more.

Improved Safari– Safari gained pinned sites to let users pin their favorite sites on the tab bar. Other than pinned sites, a new mute button is present to mute all the audios. The Reader feature gets a font and layout dropdown menu that lets you choose among different fonts and layouts. It also gives you the option to choose the light or dark background.

Smart suggestion– Smart Suggestion is a feature in Mail used to recognize names, events and allows them to quickly add them as contacts. The Mail now has an iOS alike interface and on full screen, different tools will be displayed to deal with multiple emails at a time.

Advanced notes– there is an export button on most of the application to send the thumbnail or links directly to Notes. Notes can also change few lines into a bulleted, numbered, or dashed list. Attaching files like photos, videos or any other format on Notes has never been easier before.

Gestures– receiving any mail gives you the option to swipe right to mark as read and swipe left delete.

Mails– getting messages from any numbers will automatically provide the option to save it as new contact while any dates inside the mail opens the option to include the date on the calendar.

Calendar– Calendar now has an option, if you enable that option then the application can search your mail for appointments.

Productivity improvement– the integration with Microsoft Office 2016 is now better

macOS El Capitan direct download link

There are two ways to download El Capitan. The first method is to download the installer or set up directly from the Mac App Store. Unfortunately, we can’t get the setup file of El Capitan as, Apple no longer provides them. They only allow the users to download the updates of El Capitan. Which brings us to another method.

In this method, you are going to install it on a driver and replace the old macOS. So, you will need to create a bootable USB. For which software like UUI (Universal USB Installer) can help, then go through the installation setups and install it on the existing setup.


Before you, install the OS on your system, have a backup of your files. As you might lose them while you perform the installation.
