OS X 10.11 rumours
The next edition of OS X is expected to be numbered 10.11, although Apple could jump to OS 11. We have no idea what codename Apple is using – it recently switched away from using the names of big cats to areas of California. While nothing is for certain, our first look at OS X 10.11 will be at this June’s WWDC 2015 event – we’ll tell you about that in issue 289.
There have been very few leaks regarding new features in OS X 10.11. Apple is very good at controlling software secrecy, and most leaks come from factories and relate to hardware. We expect Apple to continue tweaking the interface and to continue blending features between OS X and iOS (perhaps Watch OS also). The new Force Touch trackpad will provide a new aspect to gesture-driven interaction and Apple is sure to find further uses for its next-gen touch-sensitive surface.
Integration with the Apple Watch may also arrive, and it’s time for Siri to make its way to the Mac. Read about our wishes for the next version of OS X in The Missing Pieces of OS X and iOS, which starts on page 78.
