Apple on Monday released OS X 10.11.6 to the public. The sixth update to the El Capitan operating system hit the Mac App Store around midday Monday. The update comes two months after the release of OS X 10.11.5.
The OS X 10.11.6 update can be downloaded via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store, and is available to all users who have OS X El Capitan installed on their Mac.
OS X 10.11.6 focuses primarily on under-the-hood improvements, bug fixes, and security enhancements, with no outward facing changes.
We are likely coming to the end of any new OS X El Capitan updates, as macOS Sierra, the next-generation Mac operating system that Apple announced at the 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference, is due to be released to the public this fall.
The new OS includes such features as Siri integration, Photos improvements, auto unlocking with the Apple Watch, available anywhere files, storage optimization, copy and paste to all devices, and more.
