Apple OS X El Capitan
OS X El Capitan feels like a modest update after last year's Yosemite release, which ushered in a flat, new design and tighter integration with iOS. If you enjoyed what Yosemite had to offer, you'll appreciate the tweaks here, however minor they may seem.

- Split-screen multitasking
- Transit directions in Maps
- Safari gets pinned tabs and an easy way to mute noisy tabs
- Useful tweaks to other built-in apps, likeMail and Notes
- The addition of built-in transit directions means HopStop is shutting down
